Rated 5 out of 5 by Transactions, and research are easy I'm very pleased with the services I receive from Fidelity. Customer service is really helpful, and I call them often since the "search window" is sometimes challenging when looking for specific information, data or a procedure. However, it would be nice to talk with one or two service representative regularly, as opposed to a different representative each time I call. Thank you . April 25, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Market Security Begins Here I have had at least 5 Investment Brokerage Accounts at different Firms and looked at many more. I phased them all into Fidelity and I now have an easier time navigating through my investments, researching them and trading them. It just does not get any better. April 18, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Mistakes in Programme 1. Active trader pro does not work correctly with Windows 10. 2. Sometimes prices for shares does not show correctly in different parts of program in Win 8. 3. I do not like your rule with restriction when I can not transfer my money without your representative. 4. I do not like that you gave me 60 free trades for 50 K account and give to others 300 free trades for 50 k account. 5. I do not like that you have not discount for active traders . I payed you thousands dollars as trade fee and must pay near $ 8 again and again. Why you have not discount for "valued client"? April 18, 2016

Rated 4 out of 5 by I'm happy... with Fidelity's service. The reality is that I don't believe I've needed to ever contact Fidelity....If I had, well I don't remember why I called. Thanks much StewarT April 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Reliable, consistent, trustworthy and helpful Whereas some other large corporations that deal with thousand, probably millions, of customers, apparently do not have a logical system in place, in order to be certain that critical information, like a Financial Durable POA for an incapacitated spouse gets attached to that person's profile in such a way that their access to additional financial engagement is blocked.... Fidelity on the other hand has personnel who are knowledgable, working within an efficient system, so the same scenario is taken care of as it should. I would had have recommended Fidelity to others. # of trades depends upon circumstance & my time. April 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Reliable Fidelity gives the confident mind and peace of mind. Any customer representatives, so far in all these years almost from the year 1996 onwards,I have had the conversations and trading transactions,are attentive and knowledgable. I really appreciate their job strategy and patience in answering to any / all of the questions. April 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Support Thank you for providing excellent support when I call with questions. Your staff is outstanding and very courteous. My one complaint is the way trading information is transferred to TurboTax. I sell options regularly and when they expire worthless they result in ZERO cost. Unfortunately, the trade information transferred to TurboTax has a blank instead of a ZERO value for each similar transaction. Consequently, I have to manually enter the ZERO, sometimes going through hundreds of records. Additionally, there is a problem with the way TurboTax enters the Date Acquired and the Date Sold. A great majority times the TurboTax dates are identical for those two dates, but sometimes one day apart. Seems that incorrect information is being transmitted to TurboTax. It appears TurboTax uses the Date Acquired and Settlement Date instead of Date Acquired and Date Sold dates. April 11, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by augiedoggie excellent service and all objectives accomplished. March 24, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Generally good Overall I think the service has been improving and expanding which is what I would expect. The software platform has become more reliable even during busy periods, which is obviously a big improvement from the problems I used to experience in the last hour of trading. I'd like to see continued expansion in available fixed income securities, as I'm often looking up companies with public debt that is not available on fidelity. March 23, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by secure and reliable so happy Fidelity is managing my account for me i usually check my account often. March 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is why I prefer phone calls to online access. I dislike, no I hate the Fidelity online site, especially since its been streamlined (or dumbified) with the mobile site. However, once I pick up the phone I know i'll be talking to a competent, knowledgeable profesional who will help me with whatever issues i might be dealing with. This was just another example of that. Thank you. March 17, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Short and sweet I believe that Fidelity has a good platform for a self directed investor. I do not believe that Fidelity is the easiest to use when you interface with a relationship manager. March 14, 2016
