Enable automatic reset of the previous close values before the start of trade
This option is enabled by default and typically it should be left enabled for normal watchlists.
The data providers do not reset a security’s previous close value to the closing price from the previous day until the first quote of the current trading day is received. This means columns such as the “Day %” will have the previous day’s values until the current trading day starts.
For normal stocks and ETFs, this can cause a slight confusion around the start of the trading day. However for mutual funds, it can be quite confusing as the previous day’s gain/loss will be shown throughout the current trading day.
With this option enabled, StockMarketEye will reset the previous close value to the closing price from the previous day at 8am on the next weekday.
However, this option may not be ideal for some, especially if you have European mutual funds or other securities that are quoted by the data providers 24 hours later. You can see when the last quote was received by adding the “Last DateTime” column. If you see that the securities you follow have a last quote date over 24 hours in the past, you may want to consider disabling this option (uncheck it) so that StockMarketEye will not perform the reset of the previous close values.
