Rated 4 out of 5 by from Getting Better but Always Room to Improve Thanks for reducing transaction costs. Would have liked to see you be more of a leader and not a reactionary brokerage. Let's take the next step and increase customer broker contact and ask a couple simple questions: 1) When was the last time we talked and what has changed since that time and let me give you an observation of what we see. 2) What has changed in your investment outlook and positions and how can we help you achieve more success? 3) What are your short term and long term goals and let me see if I can provide some thoughts and ideas of how Schwab can help. A customer once told me three questions that a disgruntled customer who was leaving the service provider asked: 1) Do you know what I do (investment objectives and strategies)? 2) When was the last time you contacted me (actually communicated)? 3) How do you think I'm doing and what additional products or services could or should I be using that your firm offers and that I'm not taking advantage of? 4) Thanks and goodbye ...I've found somebody else that knows me, talks to me and brings me ideas and services/products that help me achieve my and our goals.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall Very Good Been using and TradeSource for several years, I find the trading and research functions to perform well. However, when reviewing current positions to do some of my research, it takes more time to find out the days' trading Volume; Low / High price; 52-week Low / High price; Ex-Div date (next); current P/E because the user has to click into different screens. If these data items were added to the Settings as selectable items, that would make it much more efficient. And, the add the ability to save different views (listings) of the positions data. Overall a very neat and easy to use tool. Keep up the good work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trading and accounting tool. Excellent customer service. I have been a Schwab customer for 20+ years. I am very happy with Schwab. I like the website, trading is easy and inexpensive and I have a great financial and investment adviser with whom I meet 4-5 times/year. I have referred many of my friends to Schwab.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast trades I've had the $6.95 commission rate since 2010. How about $4.95!!! I hear that folks who have had the $6.95 for a long time are asking for the $4.95 rate & getting it. Been with Schwab since 1982(34 years). No other broker
