jordandeamattson writes "For at least the last hour, Charles Schwab's (one of the leading online brokers in the US) has been offline (note: the static web page is up, it is only when you login). When attempting to login into the site you either get a non-responsive site or the message: "Schwab.COM is unavailable at this time. For urgent trading matters, contact Charles Schwab at 1-800-###-####." The is preventing customers from trading stocks online on a day when the Dow and NASDAQ are down around 2% and the S&P 500 is down around 1.5%. This is not a good thing. Will be interesting to see the black eye that they get on this one...and to hear what happened."
