At 10:30pm portfolio "today;s gain/loss" showed I lost $16k. I used a calculator and I gained $8k.

Gain/loss for several stocks/funds were correct, but not all.

    You sure you did not get caught in the market downturn? (LOL) just teasing... ;)

    Seriously though, are you sure the Quicken is not using yesterday's close? There was a huge rebound today but that may not yet be reflected in the security prices.

    At 10:30 pm I want Quicken to use the correct info. The "Today;s Change" was correct, but the extended was not. They used yesterday's price to calculate the extended gain/loss only in some cases. Why? I have to pay for this software. They could easier fix this.

    What are the exact names of the columns in the Investing Portfolio view that you are referring to? 

    If it is the Price Day Change and Day Gain/Loss, sometimes Quicken does not update these when it is supposed to. Try setting the As of date one day earlier then back to the date you are interested in. See this discussion
    https://community.quicken.com/discussion/7860534/price-day-change-not-updating-for-2-securities

    Also make sure the quotes have been updated for the date you are interested in. Is there a little clock symbol in the Quote/Price column? That indicates that the prices have not been updated for the selected date. You can hover over the clock to see the date of the most recent previous update.

    1. You might have a different version of Quicken. I just purchased the latest version of Quicken Deluxe. My columns read "Today's Change" and "Today's Gain/Loss". I have never seen a clock icon.
    2. You say to change the date.... Please tell me how to do that.

    Thanks for the effort Jim. I am using Windows 10. I don't sign into my Quicken top account. I sign-in directly to my portfolio. I think I'll close this problem for now.
