I haven't looked at the code, so I can't say exactly what is supposed
to happen, but I have never succeeded in pulling any more than the
single most recent price for any stock, no matter what dates I enter.
Are you aware you can see all prices KMM has for a given stock? Under
Tools/Prices, enter a search term for the stock you want (name or
symbol) and then check the "Show all stored prices" This will show
the currency, date, price, and source used for each entry.
