If Schwab offers Metatrader for the users so - it works.
If not so - not ..
You should ask Schwab..

Find Metatrader broker (there are a lot of Metatrader brokers, use google to find), and open the account according to their condition on their websites.

There is no any list of the brokers here on mql5 forum.
I am having my personal list (all the brokers which I was trying to find by the openning the demo/real accounts with them directly from Metatrader):

You can check some other websites which may be having some US brokers' listing for Metatrader (because the discussion about the brokers is prohibited on this mql5 forum sorry).

I am subscribed to Just2Trade-MT5 on a MT5 Demo account. How do I get marketwatch to show tickers instead of forex...

Thanks for the list. But none of them is popular here in U.S. tho.

Just curious, why is discussing brokers not allowed?

I made this list for myself (I am not from the US) spending many days for that.
You can do same: if you know some US brokers by name so you can try to open demo account with them directly from Metatrader (it is less than 1 minutes to do in most of the cases) to understand - this broker is allowing to use Metatrader or not.

----------------

The discussion about the brokers are not allowed on this forum (because selecting good broker is the risk, same risk as the selecting good EA to use or good trading system to use and so on). There are several (external) forex forums which are specializing on the discussions about the brokers so you can find them using google for example.
