the change values for mutual funds are not current until MSN Money Investing
receives the updated NAV.
The fund company uses the closing value of
the investments in each fund to calculate the NAV of the fund. The quote
provider for MSN Money Investing publishes NAV data each
business day at or around 5:00 P.M. Eastern time. Some fund managers may update
the NAV earlier or later than other managers.
Data is available
until approximately midnight Eastern time each night. This means the data does
not display after midnight until the Stock Market opens.
