They don't want their clients having MF-only accounts, so they are unwilling to make any fixes to them. I like having a MF-only account because it is easier to make transfers into and out of Fidelity, so this is the price I pay for being a long-term client. I have complained about this over the years after I lost this handy email-alerts perk following some unknown system change.
It was only after I signed into my account did I notice not one but two "spike" distributions, one in the IRA and the other one in the non-IRA.
I get the alerts from my taxable accounts. I don’t have them set up for the IRAs.
Oh, my main taxable account is a brokerage. I finally got rid of my Fidelity mutual fund only accounts as they were too restrictive. I have no trouble doing transfers in and out of Fidelity from the brokerage accounts. It’s the fastest for me. It’s usually same day, whereas in my old Fidelity mutual fund only account the transfer would not occur until the next day because they always waited until after market close.
