I heard that Schwab SSP was compatible with Windows Vista (of which I have heard a lot of bad things), but DELL forced the issue on my new computer and I now have Vista. So 1. I had problems on SSP with XP, and somehow SSP could not be used - (firewall problems???), even after talking with Schwab Tech Escalation and after completely re-installing XP so I traded on my laptop all day, thus ruining my eyesight. 2. I upgrade my computer with a bigger and better and more expensive computer, with Vista and now I get bumped out of SSP in the middle of the day with no warning. Only a mad man would trade on this junk. Since I do fast trading, this could be a disaster. So....first do people have problems with SSP and Vista? I am thinking of going back to IB where I used to have an account. Also SSP does not have futures information. Also I can move my Roth accounts to IB and not depend on 'settled money.' Basically I think SSP is NOT SET up for trading intraday. Also I have wasted enough time and money to solve this mess and should just go on and get a proper set-up. What have I not thought about.
