Investment Portfolio View Not Using Latest Price

I recently switched to MoneyDance. For investments, the portfolio view is using the price/share from the recent transaction as opposed to the most recent price/share value in the Security History window that was updated using Hleofxquotes build 209 and then imported as QIF file.
How do I make the portfolio view reflect true current value based on current stock price?

I am using MoneyDance Version 2017.8 (1691)

    just a user,

    open up the security history and check the current price shown.
    Also if you use the Security Price Entry extension, you can bump all the current prices

    Here is the explanation from MD support

    The reason why the most recent price is not used is that the current price might be newer. For example if you use the quotes and exchange rates extension to automatically download price information the price history contains prices form the end of days trading. Where as the current price might be form today int he last 15 mins.

    Thanks very much. The security history has the current prices. However, that is not used in the portfolio view. The other option of using security price extension did change it, when I updated just a few of those.

    But is there a way to automate it? It doesnt make sense to keep entering prices manually in the security price entry extension. It looked like the option of using the Hleofxquotes build along with either importing it or using the companion tool to import was the only option. Thats how I updated the security price history, but that didnt seem to solve the problem. Is there a way to populate all prices in security price entry extension?

    Hi pdorai,

    There is a free, third-party Quote Loader extension that has been developed by Moneydance user Mike Bray and forum member hleofxquotes.

    You can read up on it here. There is an attached PDF file created by forum member Derekkent23 with all the information and links that you need to get it set up and running.
