Download quotes of mutual funds...

This has been an ongoing problem with Moneydance and I don't see why it can't seem to get a fix!

As an example:
As of today (Tuesday 4/7/20 @ 3:10pm Pacific time), Moneydance is reporting a mutual fund price (PRDGX) of $41.64. That was last Friday's close (4/3/20). I have two apps (Stockfolio and even Apple's Stock App) that are reporting the correct close of this mutual fund today of $44.33.
This is resulting in a situation where one doesn't really know what their portfolio really is at using MoneyDance... which would be nice to know under these current crazy market conditions (which have nothing to do with this app's problem).

Come-on MoneyDance you can do better that this and it's been a problem for a long time!

    I'm a fellow user.

    Quotes are supplied from outside sources, AlphaVantage in the case of the Quotes and Exchange rates Extension and Yahoo or FT in the case of the Quote Loader.

    If these sources do not update the prices or do not have the prices there is really nothing Moneydance can do about it.

    Hi MWA_LAS

    Have you tried the extension Quote Loader to check if either of its sources are providing more up to date prices? Just tested both return $44.33 at time of test.

    If the Quote and exchange rate updater does not work well for you try the extension Quote Loader under EXTENSIONS – MANAGE EXTENSION

    For information see post 29 at

    Download the PDF attached to posts 29 and have a read.

    To get an overview take a look at the YouTube videos by using the links on page 1 and 2 of the PDF.

    Let us know how you get on or if you need help just post.

    Hope this helps.

    Just to confirm the quote loader is working great! Very helpful along with the powerful export to Excel options!
    MoneyDance continues to be the best out there for the Mac!
