Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sometimes good, sometimes not so good ... Can't really tell if my dissatisfaction with Schwab's performance on Friday, March 17th was due to equipment, system, and/or staff inadequacy. I use Street Smart Edge, in the cloud. I had a couple of simple questions, early in the day, for the support team for this platform but was unable to get a response (10-15 minutes) from any of several selections from the phone (800-435-9050) menu. In the final 15 minutes of trading (4:00pm-4:15pm, NY Time), I had to wait 8-10 minutes to get a confirmation on an order. Since quadruple witching is a predictable event, I doubt that this had much impact on performance. Volatility was low, anyway. It seems more likely that St. Patrick's Day or March Madness had caused a 'distraction to business'. But, what do I know?
