Mutual Fund prices

I know you're using the Alphavantage to obtain security prices and that works fine after the market close (4:00 pm EST) for stock prices but, it seems to be about 24+ hours to have the updated Mutual Fund prices (which are posted around 6:00 pm EST) each day or 2 hours after the market closes.

Why is this and can/will this be fixed?

At the end of the day, I'd like to know/see where all my investments are at vs. waiting another day to be sure the prices are correct.

Even on my computer (iMac), the "Stocks Widget" can have the correct mutual fund prices by 6:00 pm EST.

Thanks in advance for your feedback as I've listed this issue in another thread but, no feedback yet from MD.

     From someone that has watched this with MoneyDance for many years, and
    observed this both on the Yahoo site (RIP) and Vanguard/Fidelity, it
    seems that most funds finish valuation of its "shares" about 2 hours
    after the market closes, because they need to close out their positions
    (sell or redeem shares). There seems to be no consistent pattern as to
    which ones, but some are better than others. I have one fund that does
    not get it together for up to 3 hours!
