What are news feeds and podcasts?

Feeds, or "RSS feeds," refer to regular updates of web content delivered directly to you. Rather than having to check a website for new articles or columns, you can subscribe to feeds that automatically send you the information as soon as it's published online.

How do I use news feeds?

News feeds can be viewed through news readers, also known as aggregators because they can aggregate feeds from multiple websites into a single location.

Feeds are usually indicated by the  button and an accompanying link. Clicking the button or link should provide instructions for automatically or manually adding a feed to your reader.

To subscribe to a Schwab feed, follow these steps:

  1. Go to our News & Insights Subscriptions page.
  2. Click the  Subscribe link next to the feed you want to receive. This will take you to the feed's subscription page.
  3. Click the button for your specific reader and follow the instructions in the new window that opens with your reader. 
  4. If your reader doesn't appear in the list of choices, copy the URL (web address) provided for your feed, open your reader, and paste the URL where you manually add a new subscription to your reader.

Once you've subscribed to a feed, your reader automatically checks for updates and adds the new content when it becomes available.
