2 of my Fidelity accounts downloaded fine, but the rest timed out. Anyone else having difficulty downloading Fidelity transactions?

    Just a user,

    I did notice a few months ago that I was not picking up transactions from my Fidelity 401K. But the Fidelity IRA was still picking up transactions. No error messages, just lack of transaction activity. Now I just manually download the 401K activity from the web page, but IRA still works. It's similar to what I experienced with Discover. No error messages, just no transactions downloaded with Direct Connect. I wonder if the Quicken users are having issues. You might check the Quicken forum.

    None of my 4 Fidelity investments accounts download recent transaction this Saturday or Sunday morning 6/14/2020.
    Saw the same problem during June 15 weekend last year 2019, but worked again by that Sunday afternoon. Maybe their annual "maintenance weekend"?

    To give a bit more info on what I see (MacOS, MD 2019.3):
    When I log into Fidelity with my browser, I can see new transactions, like Dividends posted to my Fidelity accounts since my last weekly download.
    In MD, after invoking Online>Download all accounts, I can see in the Status bar at the bottom of the MD window the usual scrolling messages of "downloading transactions..." for each of my 4 accounts, but don't see the usual subsequent message "dowloaded x transactions" before the final message "All downloads complete" or something to that effect. Then looking at the Fidelity accounts in MD, I see none of the recent transaction, which I see by visiting my Fidelity accounts via a browser.

    Hi Fred,

    MD 2019.4 (1904) Preview
    Windows 10 (2004)

    Fidelity Investments appears to be working as expected in the above environment.

    You may want to test out the Preview build to see if it resolves the issue for you.

    As suspected and mentioned in my posts in this thread, Fidelity Investment transaction downloads work again this Sunday evening 5 pm PDT; must be an annual maintenance episode bu Fidelity.
