This is one of the problems we have with AV. They do not provide a Time series that only has daily closing prices. All of their daily series provides closing prices except for the current day where it does intraday pricing.
Perhaps the only way to force it to get only what you want is to set it for weekly and have it set to run on the weekend.

Apparently Quote Loader is already installed for me. So is AlphaVantage.
You add and remove them at
different locations. What has happened
today is all my stocks automatically
updated to Friday’s close. I am not sure if that will continue next Tuesday
before the stock exchange opening bell. Are they both providing data for me
where one seems to correct the other?

The Quotes and Exchange Rates Extension pulls data from AlphaVantage. The
Quotes and Exchange Rates Updater gets its
data from Yahoo or Google. So the Updater is not the same as the
Extension. The Updater, then,
should not be active if the Extension
is and visa versa. Correcto?

Maybe. I say during a current day AlphaVantage pulls in some random data
value for a given stock. If you
wait until the next day before the
Market opens Google or Yahoo send
via the Updater the closing value from
the previous day which over rides.
It seems you are seeing things the rest of us are not.
The first options I see in the extension drop down is “Quote and Exchange Rates” which opens a window that allows you select the source for Currency Exchange Rates, Alphavantage or European Central Bank. For security prices the source selection is Alphavantage or IEX Trading.
The second option in the Extension dropdown is “Quotes and Exchange Rates Updater”. Clicking this simple evokes the selections you make in the “Quote and Exchange Rates” window without the need to open the window and click Update Now. The sources are the same. As dwg stated these options haven’t used Google or Yahoo for a long time.
If you are seeing something different that includes Google and Yahoo can you take and post two screen shots?
a screen shot of the dropdown under extensions so we can see the two options you are talking about “Quotes and Exchange Rates Extension” and “Quotes and Quotes and Exchange Rates Updater”.
a screen shot of the windows that opens when you click on the extension “Quotes and Exchange Rates”.
The only way to get other sources Yahoo and FT is to install the Quote Loader system after uninstalling “Quote and Exchange Rates Updater” under EXTENSIONS – MANAGE EXTENSIONS

The version of Money Dance I have truly does claim Google or Yahoo as a
source for data in the Updater and makes no mention of the Updater as an
Update Now alternative. Maybe I should download the 2019 version of Money
Dance, but I hear there are some stability issues with it.
Whether or not Google or Yahoo are no longer data sources is not important.
My version of MD portrays the Quotes and Exchange Rates Updater as an
internal subroutine of MD and not just a relocated Updater command.
