OFX quotes for ETFs

I noted a blog entry from Marilyn & Bob that seems to point in the direction of requesting closed-end mutual funds like ETFs (which are really more like stocks) in the [stocks] section of Bobby’s sites.dat file or TFB’s quotes.py file rather than the [funds] section.

Robert pointed out that extra OFX code (“MFTYPE = OPENEND”) is added to mutual [funds] quotes (so that Money recognises them as such) and this might not mix well during the import crossover into your brokerage accounts for closed-end funds.
