    Hi Keith F,

    Have you tried the Quote Loader Extension V.3024?

    Look to this post from forum member derekkent23 for more information.

    I'm fellow user.

    AlphaVantage will always be slow, to keep below the imposed limits for free use it has been necessary to heavily throttle the requests sent to Alphavantage, this does make updating using this source extremely slow at best. This is beyond the ability of Moneydance to change.

    As Kevin has suggested the Quote Loader should offer significantly better performance, it is using different sources and works in a different way to download current prices.
