I have been with fidelity for over 15 years and am generally happy with them.
An issue with partial fill bothers me so free trades would help with that.
30 free trades a month is plenty. I guess it requires a $50k combined balance to get the 30 trades a month.
Was considering transferring a CD that I have at fidelity to meet that requirement. And then I can add money as needed.
Only issue is they don't give level 2 quotes until I get close to a million in assets and I may never get there.
My fear is pissing off fidelity and them taking away my active trader access.
