Bug? The market value of a brokerage account includes future share added transactions.

I add future transactions to track the RSU vesting schedule. Quicken is including future 2021 shares in the "market value".... But here's the crazier thing: It's not including the market value of "added" transactions beyond 2021.

    Where are you seeing these future values?

    The Accounts bar has a setting to control current value or ending value.

    The value of shares added with transaction dates between "today" and 12/31/2021 is shown in the account bar.

    I have 7 transactions to add shares of XYZ dated between 5/17/21 and 11/15/21. Total shares added from these 7 transactions is 236. The account has no other holdings/positions. The closing share price today was $153.82. The account bar shows a balance of $36,302 (as does "total market value") or $153.82 x 236 shares.

    In the same account, there are additional transactions adding shares on various dates between 1/1/2022 and 2/15/2025. A total of 554 additional shares are being added in the post 1/1/2022 transactions. The value of these shares is not being reported in the account bar like the erroneous value of the 2021 share adds.

    Adding or reducing the number of shares in any of the 2021 future transactions increases or decreases (respectively) the account bar value (and the "total market value").

    Adding or reducing the number of shares in any of the 2022 through 2025 future transactions has no effect on the account bar value.

    The account bar is set to display current value.

    MAC users have also discussed the bug (https://community.quicken.com/discussion/comment/20158601#Comment_20158601), but @Quicken_Tyka seems to think this behavior is by design.
