Traders on Trading: The making of StreetSmart Edge
Real traders share their thoughts about trading. You’ll also see how StreetSmart Edge was developed around a trader’s needs.

Your trading platform: help or hindrance?

Today's advanced trading platforms are supposed to help you as a trader. But often, their complexity makes them hard to learn and use (and even harder to master). So they end up getting in the way of your trading.

Designed for traders like you.

When StreetSmart Edge development began, Schwab designers recognized the frustration traders had with their platforms. Visiting traders in their homes and offices and observing their workflow using the platforms, they asked, "What do you need to do now?" and "How is your platform getting in the way?" They then created a platform that combines a deep understanding of traders with design innovation.

A platform that thinks like a trader.

StreetSmart Edge has an intuitive, approachable design that aligns with your trading workflow. Its integrated tools make the process of identifying (and acting) on potential opportunities more logical and efficient. Its flexibility helps it adapt to your style and skill level. And its features work together to help you monitor your orders and positions.

Using a Mac® or don't meet the Windows minimum system requirements?

StreetSmart Edge can be used with our cloud-based solution. You can use the internet to access StreetSmart Edge in the cloud so the program can be used with non-Windows-based computers or computers that may not meet the minimum system requirements.1 Launch StreetSmart Edge in the cloud now or call a Schwab Client Services Specialist at 800-435-4000 for more information.

Mac users not preferring StreetSmart Edge in the cloud, can also run StreetSmart Edge on their Mac by installing a Windows emulator—such as Parallels Desktop® 7 for Mac—and running Windows 7. (An emulator is a program that allows Mac OS®-based computers to run Windows-based programs.)
