I think you get what you pay for. Scotttrade has $7 transaction fees. Fidelity has $8 trades (at my acoount level). Which one do you think is the best? Don't look to Scottrade to stand behind any of their mistakes!!!!

Then why not go to a broker that charges $19.95 per trade? :-)

Seriously, if you are going to use the "you get what you pay for" logic then how much more service do you really expect for one whole dollar difference in price? I am not saying the service at Fidelity is not much better as I don't have accounts with either place. But when you say you get what you pay for and then explain you are now paying one dollar more, how much more are you getting?

Sorry to hear of your troubles with Scottrade.
