Rated 2 out of 5 by from Trading fees/commissions aren't competitive...period. Schwab's promotions (i.e. 500 free trades, when funding a new account etc.) are a joke, as any serious trader will end up giving up and back any savings by paying exorbitant commissions after the 500 trades. Schwab will try and justify the commissions and deflect the issue by touting the services they offer. Services are generally fair. Schwab could cut down on their overhead by eliminating the weekend personnel who offer realistically nothing more than an answering service referral to the regular active traders Monday-Friday. Fine for mutual funds, but not a trader's broker for stocks and options etc. Advice to Schwab....initiate competitive trading commissions and fees!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Accoubt name on reports I like the system. I have two accounts- regular and IRA and I would like to see the "Account Title" on all displays so that when I print them I know which account it applies to. For example "Trade Details"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have always had excellent execution, with very reasonable pricing and with ease of use. Whenever (seldom) I had a question, I was quickly connected with the appropriate person to answer/resolve the question. If you want me to go paperless (a good idea), give me an incentive ($s) to do so (it is my paper, ink, printer).
