Fidelity Account - Cash symbols (core holding)

Fidelity allows you to select your core holding (cash, typically in a MM fund).
Quicken does not get this info from Fidelity, nor does it allow you to set it manually.
The result is some transactions are being downloaded, that should just be updates to the account's cash balance.
Not all accounts have this issue (401k does not), but Roth and normal brokerage accounts do. Why is this so badly implemented ?

    Hello @crashmeister3,   

    I am sorry about this problem with missing cash holdings. Thank you for asking about this here on the Quicken Community. 

    First, do you know what 'instance' of Fidelity you selected in order to link your accounts to online banking services? Also, If you have the chance, it would help us to troubleshoot the situation if you could save a backup by going to File > Save a Backup... in the upper menu at the top of the screen while Quicken is open and then create a new 'test' data file by following the steps listed below:
    1. Navigate to File
    2. Select New
    3. Select Start from scratch
    4. Click Next
    5. Choose appropriate default categories based on geographic location
    6. Click Next
    7. Choose Don't use Quicken Mobile & Web
    8. Click Next 


    You may then add your Fidelity-affiliated accounts in the newly created data file by clicking on the Add Account button denoted by the '+' symbol in the upper left-hand side of the screen, then choosing your financial institution and entering your credentials as prompted. I am curious whether or not these issues continue in this data file. 

    I look forward to hearing your answers.

    Thank you,

    Quicken Jared
