Whew. So I see a few things here, Fidelity is extremely delayed reporting a price. Quicken thinks the price is current I guess because it has today's date.
What algorithms Quicken uses to get the extended data, I can't say.
Chris_QPW said:...As I said before Quicken has three sources of prices. Manual entry, which is both entering the price for the security, or entering a transactions that has a security price in it.The others are the broker download (OFX data) and their third party quote service (which has to have a proper ticker to work).The real magic is deciding which one "wins" when you have multiple ones. That is basically the part that seems to have changed for One Setup Update (but not for the Update button).
Bob, I tried to reply to your question about my preferred stock, but somehow it doesn't seem to have appeared. At the risk of redundancy, I'll repeat the essentials.
The security is Hillman Preferred. Fidelity lists it as HLM.PR. Yahoo finds it as HLM-P. I've seen HLM_P. Quicken finds it as HLM-. I changed the symbol in Quicken to HLM- and did an update, seemed to find it. Now I don't know if Fidelity will balk if I do another trade.
Why isn't there a standard symbol for Preferred stocks? Can't really blame Quicken or Intuit for this I guess.
