Can Price Day Change (%) and Day Gain/Loss (%) ever differ?

I think I am wasting space in one of my portfolio views. It shows both Price Day Change (%) and Day Gain/Loss (%). These values are always identical.

Is there any circumstance under which they could differ, or can I remove one column and save space?

    Hello @Rocket J Squirrel,

    Thank you for reaching out to the Community. The two values will normally be the same, however, according to Quicken help, Quicken does come up with those numbers in different ways. The Day Gain/Loss (%) comes from Quicken calculations (which are based on your transactions). The Price Day Change (%) comes from prices and trends (that Quicken has downloaded).

    I hope this helps!
