Rated 5 out of 5 by Trading fees If I had more free trades I would move more funds to Fidelity. Rather than shop around for other brokers. March 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by the professionals I don't invest in many individual stocks and definitely don't trade frequently, so I'm not the best customer to ask for an opinion. However, I've maintained accounts with Fidelity for about 30 years. I have never found any fault with Fidelity Investments and have always considered it the best financial services company, and one of the best companies in any industry, that I've ever dealt with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Information & Easy to Use Contains a wealth of information and it is very easy to perform transactions. March 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by secure and reliable It does what is advertised and the service is good. Would like to see more info on building an income portfolio. March 19, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Additional market indicators I need to use another well known trading platform, because you do not offer these indicators: $TICK, AUDJPY, $ADD and $VOLSPD. Start offering these and I can eliminate a competitive platform. March 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great method to "keep track" I really like the layout of the account tools and the availability of advisors who understand it all very well. The only thing I would ask is a "nit"...I would like a total at the bottom of the "cost basis column" like most of the other pertenant columns. We are moving my wifes IRA roll over to Fidelity this year. March 19, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Informative & Secure My account is comprehensive and can be easily manipulated to see details that I choose, at various levels. It can be viewed from different aspects; e.g., gain/loss, activity, holdings, new research, etc. March 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Helpful Excellent Representative, very helpful can always contact on him for his input. March 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Accurate & Secure I trust Fidelity. I moved my company's 403b plan to Fidelity. My four children all have Fidelity Accounts. My wife and I have all of our accounts with Fidelity and we like the lack of fees for many situations and the low fees where they exist. Excellent staff and account executive. Great followup and call back when needed. Easy to use website with all the information you will ever want. Great IPhone app. Great security, yet not too cumbersome. Only one suggestion...put the dividend rate on the stock quote page. I do most of my investing with the dividend in mind and I have to go several pages to get the information. March 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good stuff Fidelity offers a lot of service to its clients. These services include but are not limited to no load funds, free ETFs, low fees for stock transactions, investment opinions, tax impacts, estate planning, in house courses on investing, seminars on investing, an assigned advisor, etc. The fact that an advisor is not working for a commission based on a sale makes the advisor more trustworthy. March 18, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Best Online Portfolio System It is a great online system. When you need help all you have to do is call. They will give you great service. The investment selection is also very good. March 18, 2013
