Re: Rebalance during these days of high volatility?

Today’s reversal (stocks up/bonds down) was enough to return the positions to normal, i.e., within the bands. So if I would not have checked my portfolio yesterday then I would have avoided any worry about rebalancing at this time. Maybe there’s a lesson in that...

Re: Stock and ETF brokerage costs plunge

Fidelity will reimburse the fee that another brokerage may charge you to transfer funds to Fidelity. Just need to show Fidelity your statement from the other company confirming the fee/charge. Where do present the statement? Online or at a branch? Definitely online. Don’t know about the branch. htt...
