Great news—watchlists will be moving to Schwab. If you use watchlists in the TD Ameritrade Mobile app, be aware that watchlists that are saved locally on your mobile device will not move to Schwab. Only watchlists that are saved in the app itself will move.

In addition, please be aware that once you are at Schwab, watchlists will not sync between thinkorswim® and or Schwab Mobile. Any change to one requires a manual update to the other in order to keep watchlists aligned.

Market data

Schwab provides real-time streaming quotes free of charge to nonprofessional clients. Here's what else you can expect.
