Schwab Trading Services is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 1830.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Improvements recommended Schwab has unnecessarily failed investors in favor of traders, who provide greater returns from fees. While Streetsmart Pro was appropriate for traders, while optimal for investors, Streestmart Edge is appropriate only for traders. I constantly asked that Schwab leave Pro as is, without updates, yet was not paid attention to and can no longer trade optimally, which I could with Pro. I have been forced to seriously consider either leaving Schwab totally, or keeping my account with minimum trading and do my investing and trading elsewhere. The elimination of Pro truncated my plan to bring all my resources to Schwab. Now I have 4 different places to do my trading with the purpose of exploring to determine the most efficient and friendly alternative henceforth. Edege has many problems, all of which I have commented to staff without ever receiving feedback. Will present a few. The trading window is inefficient and troublesome because its creators insist in fixing a default not subject to adjustment by traders, delaying trading in addition to causing great frustration by having to deal with the default every time a change is made to a planned trade. Another problem has to do with space, by not permitting the trader to adjust the watch lists and layouts to his/her preference, such as the useless and unnecessary space taken by the Symbol link, among other issues. An additional inconvenience is the excessive vertical space taken by both the watch list and the trading window, unnecessarily leaving open space uselessly. I have two monitors, each 23 inches. I could place many more columns vertically and rows horizontally with Pro than with Edge. Edge is not match to the "friendliness" of Pro. There is no reason for limiting the layouts to only two shades, light and dark, when gray is a good alternative, as well as many other colors. Finally, although not related to Edge, Schwab should seriously look into its inability to provide the correct prices in situations like the one experienced on February 5, to cite the latest example. I was called by Schwab staff to alert me that my account was under alert with a margin call which was really inexistent ("fake" news to use the language in fashion) since the numbers were wrong, as I explained to the caller, who did not know what I was talking about, reluctantly agreed, but insisted that if I did not take action the responsible staff members were likely to do so. This forced me to made unnecessary trades causing me losses that could have been avoided..

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Street Smart Edge I spent half the morning trying to download the platform on a Mac. The tech support people were great. But, you shouldn't need tech support to download a trading platform. I give it an "F" in terms of user-friendliness. I am also updating my watchlist and can't delete some of the positions. It's as though they are frozen in there. It just shouldn't be this difficult. The platform also froze completely forcing me to shut down the computer. Logging back on was not easy either. You have to read the fine print on the Schwab home page just to locate the platform!! I need to spend my time trading instead of trying to make sense of a system/platform which should be SELF-EXPLANATORY. Perhaps I will use your competitor's platform?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from All-in-One- trades I have been using Schwab for many, many years. I recently was told by their rep I could use All-in-One to make trades and stops. However, it is a two step procedure and using this site to buy-or-sell market orders and also put a stop on it at the same time is not possible. It has to be a two step procedure- and should be renamed to All- in Two Steps. Otherwise, they do well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome All-in One Platform for Investing I have switched to schwab for almost a year now. Overall, the experience is very satisfying. Schwab.com has very clean interface and features. The trade execution was excellent. Also, the customer service were very helping when you have a question.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Difficult to find StreetSmart; and why do I have to nav thru 4 pages to find my current stock trades? Difficult to find StreetSmart; and why do I have to navigate through 4 pages before I can see my current stock and option trades? Add to that some very lousy fills ("market" trade immediately filled WAY above the ask, which remained stable before, during and after the trade!); slooooow fills on high volume options, etc.; I am disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Massive Tools I was with another internet broker and I thought they had a lot of tools. I was wrong I opened an account at Schwab and was blowin away by all the tools for research and just everything you can do on the site. I'm still finding areas I haven't utilized but I'll get there. I'm glad switched.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GTC Trailing Stop Orders Recently educated as to the way GTC order expirations are handled. Always had received an email notification for stop and limit orders but that does not apply to Trail Stop Loss or other special orders, Learned that the work around was to create bracket orders so the orders did not expire without notification. MAde me use SSE though which is a good thing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Confusing for the amateur Every few months the front pages change. I take care of my families accounts and it used to be very easy. Now I go to the wrong account because it doesn't separate it any more. I am considering switching to another company because I really don't like the set up any more.
