    I'm sure everything will be fine, Schwab seems like a decent company. But I'm annoyed and a little bummed out because I recently went through a similar situation when Scottrade was acquired by TD.

    I just finally got used to TD and the way their platform is setup, and I've spent a significant amount of time learning how to use TD's thinkorswim software... and now it sounds like I'm going to have to learn a whole new platform again. Arrrrg.

    Plus the customer service I have received from TD has been absolutely outstanding. I really hope I can still count on the same level of attention and support from Schwab.

    What do you think? Is this a good thing or a bad thing for TD customers?

    Schwab has been my main broker for years,
    they are a full service bank also.
    I can call and speak with a real live person 24-7.

    Hopefully it will be a step up for you folk.

    We have come along way from stock certificates and sharebuilder days.

    That's good to hear @Optionslayer . I've had similarly great customer service and platform options with TD, so hopefully it'll end up good for everyone.
