Click to go to the top of the page Charles Schwab - "Charles Schwab brokerage services are excellent. Their website is excellent in all respects.

Click to go to the top of the page Charles Schwab - "I am new to investing and have bought stock and mutual funds through Schwab. I find them as delightfully polite and helpful. My only complaint was they did not cover two mutual funds I wanted but the second choices that they did have, worked out about the same. All 4 funds are not Schwab but Janus ,Pimco and TCW the two stock funds are Janus the bond funds are Pimco and TCW. So overall thus far have been helpful with no SNAFU's."

Click to go to the top of the page Charles Schwab - "I have over 20 years investment experience. Over the last 3 years I have traded with TD Ameritrade, Charles Schwab, E-trade and Scotttrade. Also, I have extensive experience with brokerage firms such as Morgan Stanley, UBS Painewebber, Solomon Smith and Barney, Brown Brothers Harriman and Citigold. I do not believe there are regulations in place to protect retirement plans, IRA's or general savings. I believe "Wall Street" (a term used to describe the financial sector here and around the world) has become incredibly dishonest and unlawful. The SEC and FINRA are failing as such should be replaced by new agencies. My experience with online trading is the tail of two cities I have had great success with E-trade. Scotttrade also appears to perform well, however I do need more time to properly evaluate this company. As far as TD Ameritrade, you have no control over your account; I have had good trades backed out and I have not been able to execute certain trades. Their front page (Balance and Positions) is the weirdest thing I have ever used. They have a special rule that stymies the trader's ability to navigate their investment and they refuse to fix their problems. E-trade gives you your gain and losses immediately. TD Ameritrade porn's this data to a third party who TD disclaims they are not responsible for their data you receive. They are making incredible profits and myself and others feel their staff is ether demoralized or in denial. Schwab is worse than TD Ameritrade. This is my experience, I am not endorsing any trading house, however, please be careful with all online brokers."
