Rated 3 out of 5 by from Adding a few simple features would make all the difference. Overall, I think Schwab is a solid tool for trading. Options for buying and selling are explained well, which is especially helpful for a beginner. There are 2 things that would really improve overall usability. I do not like the functionality of your watchlists. It seems that I have to manually enter the stock symbols into my list, even when I am viewing the stock symbol that I want to add. Why not add a simple button/drop down that would allow the user to add the symbol directly to the watchlist without having to rekey it? The other thing that I would like to see is the ability for a user to easily sell all, sell 75%, sell 50%, or sell 25% of a stock that they own. The same is true in reverse. Why not offer a quick buy max option that would automatically calculate the total amount that you can buy with the cash you have on hand. This would save the user some steps if they simply want to exchange all of their cash for a particular stock or vice versa.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Poor Communication I opened the account 7 days back and I am still not able to transfer money to be able to start trading. Very poor communication from Schwab on this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from TERRIBLE PLATFORM! I have traded options for over 20 years. I was migrated into Schwab from OptionsXpress where I had traded for 15 years with very few, if any, problems. Schwab has lost me as a continuing customer as soon as I am able to investigate other companies. I have seen absurd values on my account and am now locked out of trading because I "supposedly" have money due on a CASH account trading only options. IMPOSSIBLE since I have no margin that I trade against! This is the latest of an ongoing comedy of problems since their acquisition of OptionsXpress. THIS IS NOT A PROFESSIONALLY RUN COMPANY!
