It appears that quote launcher through Yahoo is not downloading the correct prices for Vanguard mutual funds. VTSAX on March 31 in the evening, quote launcher downloaded a value of $99.97, yet the Yahoo site and Vanguard site at the same time had the value at $100.50. Any suggestions? Stock values and Vanguard ETFs are correct. Thanks.

    According to the yahoo history page of VTSAX on 30th March the price was
    $99.97 and on 31st it was $100.50 so Quote Loader is returning the
    correct price.

    Please see attached. VTSAX on March 31 was $100.50 as you said, as on Yahoo, but my attached screenshot shows $$99.97. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks for your help.

    So, all Quote Loader does is request the Yahoo web page for the Ticker
    and return the price, trade date and currency on that page.  It could be
    one of timing so Quote Loader ran before the page has been updated.  You
    have not done anything wrong/

    If you go to the security (tools/securities) select your security you
    will see the history of the prices.  You can correct the price or delete
    it.  Either way the price for that date will have been corrected.  By
    any chance are you on different timezones to Yahoo?

    I am on Eastern Time. I refreshed Quote Loader at 7 AM today (April 1) and still got the March 30 closing price of $99.97 but when I refreshed again at 11 AM today, now the price is the close on March 31 at $100.50. I know that Yahoo and Vanguard have the closing prices for their mutual funds by 7 PM Eastern so not sure why the delay when using Quote Loader. Thanks for your help.

    No problem, quote loader only reports what is on the web page. We have
    had issues with Yahoo where it has strange prices at certain times of
    day but is correct on close of exchange.

    DSon't necessarily count on the 7pm update. I have seen instances (sine
    I use the Quote Loader _and_ the Vanguard investor site) updates taking
    more than a day to get between the two. Vanguard is (or is supposed to
    be) doing a billion dollar upgrade to their old systems, but it is
    causing all kinds of investor grief (see user forums).

    An error has been found in Quote Loader where it doesn't set a flag MD is reliant on. It is possible that the current price set by QL is overwritten. This has been corrected in build 3031. TIK have verified this but not yet added it to the list of available extensions. You can download the new version from https://bitbucket.org/mikerb/moneydance-2019/downloads/.
    Download file securityquoteload.mxt and install it in MD by using Manage Extensions/Add from file.
