Schwab Live Trading Update

After several months of beta testing, we are excited to announce that Schwab Account holders (recently transitioned from TD Ameritrade) will be able to place live trades via the DAS Trader platform starting on June 10th. For new subscribers of our service, it is still the same two-step process of first subscribing to a data package, then going through the Account Authorization process to connect to your live account.  The only difference is that Schwab requires traders to renew their account authorization every 7 days as opposed to TD’s authorization which lasted 90 days.
Please note that current and active subscribers of our TD subscription need only to re-do the step 2 process to authorize the Schwab account number they wish to Authorize. Once done, it will automatically delete the old TD account number and replace with the Schwab account selected to be used through the Schwab API.
