1 to 4 Split not matching brokers values

I have some Apple stock 17 that was split to 68.
Value before split was 1860.44, stock bought at 109.437 and according to my etrade portfolio it should be valued today at 8,245.68 at 121.26. This is the split that was 31/08/2020 for Apple.

But MoneyDance has it at 7441.76 and I can't for the life of me figure out why.

What am I missing?

    The last time I checked this for a user, I checked all the official split dates with apple and the user had one missing and also a wrong date.

    Can you screen shot the split history and also the buy/sell txns?

    Thank you for helping out Stuart, I really appreciate it.
    I think this is what you are asking for, I am very new to personal finance and stocks, and I am not a native English speaker.

    OK, clearly your price history is wrong... If the current price is 121.26 then in price history for Apple it should say current price = 121.26 and also have an dated price for today for 121.26...

    - what is your system base currency? - what is the currency of the account in MD? - what currency is the stock setup as I see it says Euro...? - Critically, how are you updating your stock prices?

    Okay so I work and live in Ireland (ROI), I am Swedish, and the company gave me stock in the USA. So I have Euro as the base, a few Swedish Bank Accounts in SEK and the Investment in USD.

    The Buy date for the Stock should be 31/07/2017.
    The Split date as I understand it should be 31/08/2020

    The Quotes I get from the Quotes and Exchange Rates Updater v. 1024. on MoneyDance v 2021 (2006) via European Central Bank for Currencies and Alphavantage for securities (Or at least that is what I hope is happening).

    at this point my brain hurts ;->. Let's rule out the Q&ER rate extn for now.. Can you try setting the current price and the latest dated price to the correct price manually? Does this correct your valuation?

    If yes, then at this point I will await Derek to jump in and advise on the best setup for getting prices...

    Stuart: Setting it manually fixed the price issue! Thank you!

    Derek: Reading thought things, do I have to remove all plug-ins and the plug-in manager to install Quote Loader if I have never had it installed before?

    Hi MaxHeadroom

    As you have never had Quote Loader installed simply click EXTENSIONS – MANAGE EXTENSION and find Quote Loader in the list and click INSTALL. That’s it. Use the PDF and/or videos to see how to use Quote Loader.

    Hope this helps
