I have decided to close all my accounts with WellsTrade and move to Schwab or Fidelity. I have already helped my daughter open an account with Schwab and was very happy with the customer service. This is in contrast to all kinds of confusing information I received about PMA accounts from Wells Fargo (board members here provided better information!). With this experience, I called WellStrade to find out about any fees to transfer assets. I was calmly told about $95 fee for asset transfer, without even a single question about the reason I want to transfer. Clearly, they are more interested in charging fees vs. retaining a customer. Considering everything (a) poor customer service at WellsTrade, (b) nickel-and-diming with fees for some other household accounts, (c) much better experience at Schwab and Fidelity (I have an IRA with them) so far, (d) scant research tools at Wells, I will eat the transfer fee and move out. The 100 free trades were the only thing keeping me there, but I have not made any non-NTF trades there anyway. Good bye, Wells Fargo!
