Default data feed missing split adjusts

I am using the Yahoo feed for my back-test.
I have noticed several stock symbols eg. AMGN are not split adjusted
even after I:
1. Update splits and dividends for the symbol in the Instrument Manager
2. Turn on split adjustment in the Options->Misc->Data menu

In the case of AMGN, there are no historical splits recorded in the Instrument Manager Misc Data box. Yahoo charts web-page has 5 historical splits for this symbol.

Hello mjtrader,

I was able to reproduce it as per the AMGN. I am not sure why splits and dividends are not updated when hitting 'Update splits & dividends'.

I tested other Nasdaq stocks as well as some Nyse stocks and they all seem to update as expected so far.

I manually entered splits as per the AMGN and when creating a brand new chart the split (11/22/1999) was reflected in the chart. I suggest to manually add the splits and dividends as per the AMGN.
