Description
Yahoo suddenly stopped API support: https://forums.yahoo.net/t5/Yahoo-Finance-help/Is-Yahoo-Finance-API-broken/td-p/250503

All traders can no longer use Free Quotes for Hong Kong stocks (EOD). Google does not provide any historical data Hong Kong stock.

Please fix such issue. Suggestions could be: (1) Integrate with other free source of Hong Kong (EOD), e.g. https://api.tiingo.com/services/tiingo/daily

(2) Instead of using API technology, MultiCharts could integrate with Yahoo's historical data text file directly - refer to the link of "Download Data" https://finance.yahoo.com/quote/0941.HK/history?p=0941.HK https://query1.finance.yahoo.com/v7/finance/download/0941.HK?period1=1492916255&period2=1495508255&interval=1d&events=history&crumb=bGa9x0ido1Q
Steps to reproduce this issue

add "0001.HK" to QuoteManage using SEHK (exchange) and STOCKS and FreeQuotes.
Charts cannot be plotted.

The issue is on Yahoo end and unfortunately we cannot resolve it on our end effectively. Was moved to Feature Request.

Free Quotes data feed was improved to adopt the API changes Yahoo made on their end.
