I. Setup (for Sync Import Obsolete):

 

These instructions were written before CyberTrader accounts merged into Schwab and are retained during this transition period.  Transferred accounts will likely show a "0.00" balance on the Penson site.

 

A. Find Your Account Number & Username.

 

  • Log into your account.

  • Navigate to Account.

  • Select Penson.

  • Respond to any security questions that appear.  The process lands on the Penson site.

 

 

  • Select: Account Information /Customer Info.

 

 

  • Review "Customer Info" .... 

  • Your Account Number begins with 07, it is near the top of the page.

  • Your Username = User ID, it is near the bottom of the page.

 

 

 

B. Confirm Your Password

 

Your Password depends on the type of account you have:
 

  • If User ID begins with "AUTOGEN*" (see near bottom of the page)
    then Password = Tax ID (a Social Security Number).
     

  • If User ID is a name
    then you have a custom password.  If you forgot your password then contact support.
