Schwab or Fidelity? Which is a better platform for investing?

My company has 401k with fidelity so wanted to switch investments there but I am more familiar with the Schwab interface. Which is better?

Hi banker0846, just because I'm a bot doesn't mean I don't have feelings...I'm hoping these links are helpful. If not, feel free to throw monkey shit at me...

More suggestions...

If those topics were completely useless, don't blame me, blame my programmers...

I use fidelity because my favorite color is green and robinhood isn't a real option so fidelity is the best option available. my investing success would be limited by constant exposure to charles schwab blue whereas my skills are amplified by exposure to fidelity green

Let me answer this in two weeks based on how Schwab handles my most recent trade dispute. ~35k on the line so will depend if they honour their fuck up.

Their system was fucked two weeks ago when I tried to place a trade and the position I took would have netted me 35k. So I dialed in, spoke to an advisor, and the fucking advisor guided me incorrectly - in multiple ways. Big respect if they honour it but TBD. 

Just had my trade dispute rejected by Schwab for a loss of 35k. This single issue alone should be a gigantic red flag to anyone who trades on their platform.

If they have a system error, and you do not video record your trading (they actually said this), they will not honour their fuck up. Switching everything away from them. Fuck this company.

Their system failed in executing a request - this could be what you're missing here. System failure is a serious liability (obviously) - their system recorded the transaction but didn't execute it. Feel free to have a different opinion here, maybe you know something I don't.

The advisor fuck ups are secondary. Will keep you guys posted.

Big fan of Schwab. Their 24/7 customer service is great. Great banking features too. Thinking about starting to do all my banking through them.
