Rated 5 out of 5 by from Schwab Is the Best Schwab is by far the best brokerage company with which I have ever been associated. I have been trading stocks for over fifty years, through independent brokers and several discount trading services. Six years ago a neighbor of mine, Paul, a CPA and bond expert, strongly recommended switching from my existing company to Schwab. Paul’s professional recommendation was predicated upon his history of consistently positive experiences with all aspects of the many services provided by Schwab. I followed Paul's recommendation and, during my six years with Schwab, have more than doubled the value of my original portfolio. I might add that I do not subscribe to any other investment company or stock advisory service. Almost all the investing decisions I make (about 800 trades per year) are based upon information provided through the rich wealth of data and guidance contained within the Schwab Customer Service website. In my pre-Schwab years, I never approached the DOW or S&P benchmarks—now I am consistently meeting or exceeding them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Every time I call, the service is outstanding. I trade quite a bit. The platform is very good, but what I appreciate the most is the support by phone I get whenever I call, including the margin desk lol.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to complex, has all the choices! With all the tools available for research to compare and keep track of where and what % I am invested in, and to consider how close I am to my target, this is the platform I want to be on! I am comfortable using schwab.com, and enjoy streetsmart, although have more to learn at my own pace.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Execution and Helpful Advice I have found that Schwab consistently executes my trades to my advantage. I feel confident that I get the best possible price buying and/or selling. Their trading support team is very knowledgeable and takes time to really understand what I am wanting to do and offers clear and effective advice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Format changes are fine Every time an app changes format it takes some usage to get used to it . At first I thought it was confusing but after using it for a while, I caught on . It's like getting a new phone and figuring out how it works .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from As a Consultant I choose Charles Schwab As a Consultant I find that Schwab interface and it's client service reps are all I need. I use Market reports provided from several outside Agencies. All of my charts I can work on through the web platform. Everything is done through internal email. I appreciate everyone's patience and knowledge bringing me up to speed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good start--Bad Stop I appreciate being able to trade on the various Schwab platforms, but there should really only be ONE platform that has all features and capabilities in one place so that beginners to pros have ONE point of reference for everything. It is inconvenient to have to go from the very plain Schwab website to StreetSmart.com or StreetSmartEdge.com. The Firefox browser does not support the latter two, which is sort of a pain since I have to access a different computer to use the latter ones. But as far as trading information and opportunity, the main website is good.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from needs much improvement There is no real benefit for active traders. Today i placed a limit order for 1500 shares. Schwab executed a buy of 1 share resulting in a cost to me off a commission. When i called my customer rep i got an automated message that he is away till 4/24/2017..
