    • Beautiful intuitive UI
    • No fees to trade
    • Lack of advanced trading options

    "A Free Stock Trading App For Investment Beginners"


    Robinhood - Free Stock Trading is a free stock trading app available for iOS devices. Robinhood works by taking away the standard $10 fee charged by big name brokers like ETrade or Charles Schwab, allowing you to buy and sell stocks with absolutely no commission fees. With the app, you can also access market data and quotes in real time, track your portfolio, and tell when markets open and close. Robinhood can also deposit your money directly into your bank account.


    Unlike most other stock trading apps in the market, Robinhood uses a very beautiful and intuitive interface, allowing for quick setup and great ease of use. As promised, there are no commission fees to buy and sell stocks. You also don’t need a minimum amount to begin invest; if you have a few bucks, you can get started right away.


    Currently, Robinhood offers barebones stock trading, lacking advanced market options that other big name brokerages offer, such as trading options, OTC securities, and mutual funds. Only individual accounts are available, leaving out joint investors.

    All investments involve risk and the past performance of a security, other financial product or cryptocurrency does not guarantee future results or returns. While diversification may help spread risk, it does not assure a profit or protect against loss. You can always lose money when you invest in securities, cryptocurrencies, or other financial products. Investors should consider their investment objectives and risks carefully before investing.

    Margin trading in securities involves interest charges and risks, including the risk of losing more than deposited or the need to deposit additional collateral in a falling market. Before using margin, customers must determine whether this type of trading strategy is right for them given their specific investment objectives, experience, risk tolerance and financial situation.
