The phone rep said they are making the new web page for use on small cell phone and tablet. So it is single window and single tasked !! And those spacing makes it easier for big fingers to touch.
They seems to forget that millions users are still on MS Windows which is multi Windows and multi tasked. Most Windows users also use much bigger monitor than the small cell phone or tablet.
To me, the apps on cell phone and tablet should not be modified to replace the classic web page. I love the classic web page and they don't allow me to go back. So sad. This is really like the new formula of coke and I believe it is destined to fail !
I know Fidelity has many restrictive rules to discourage employees to do any trading. I guess most developers there do not trade much, they don't know how to make a real good trading platform for real retail customers who do trading frequently. What they can do is to beautify it and add more spaces between anything. I need to scroll up and down, expanse and collapse items much more than before. It also does not allow me to open trading page in a new tab in my browser, so I can't check on some info (on other pages) while I am in trading page. It does not help me to trade better and make more profit for me. Most research info there is not that useful and outdated. The new web page is also much slower ! I wonder why they spent money to make their web page worse. The trading link is now on upper left, and I feel that they don't want you to find it. The quick action pull down list is gone. The big new account # column on the left is a waste of space, it used to be a pull list on the top.
I did not give them any comment before but I always switched back to classic page. However, last week they removed the switch back option and the rep said nope nope nope to me.... Now I try NOT to log on to my account because I don't like to see the new web page....
I am forced to switch to the new Fidelity web page for my trading account, it is really bad. It looks pretty but difficult and confusing to do trading... I need to do more scroll up and down, expand and collapse. Many function needs more click to accomplish.... Anyone is using it now ? I asked to switch back to the previous web style and they can't... I am considering to switch platform soon....
From today's MW news - a Reuters rerrot said it planned to start a $50-billion fund for Brazilian infrastructure investments with Brazil's top lender, the state-owned Caixa Economica Federal.
Yes, I compared Fid and Van funds, I still like Fid funds because of better performance. I don't care they charge more fee, I only care how much left for me. And Fid has better performance and I gain more from them.
No one knows the future. Don't put all egg in one basket. And keep on investing regularly over 10+ years. It rides out all ups and downs.
After 6 years of rally, I recently put 25% of my current positions in foreign funds. Don't be too stubborn. No one can make the max. amount of money. Somewhere above average is good enough.
Many Fidelity funds have distribution today and will post on 4/13. All these funds show negative return for today. My account total dropped a lot today but I know the distribution on 4/13 will fix that and may get even more. Don't panic when you see a much smaller account balance this weekend..... :-)
