Robinhood Robinhood is an app built around one promise: The app itself is stylish and simple, a big part of why it won an Apple Design Award. It makes stock trading cheap, intuitive, and mobile. Its ease of use was refreshing, and the only complaint I had was lag times while moving money around.
Over a year career, this 'stubborn scientist' helped change the way we think about cancer and genetics. You have successfully emailed the post. How to use Robinhood, the popular app that lets you trade stocks without paying any fees. Here's what it's like using Robinhood, the app that wants to democratize stock trading. This is what the Robinhood icon looks like on an iPhone. If you have one of the more recent models of the iPhone, you will be able to choose whether to log in with your fingerprint or a password.
To start trading with Robinhood, you must first link your bank account. You can set up a one-time transfer, which takes up to three business days to process. These funds will remain in your Robinhood account until you transfer them back. You can also schedule periodic deposits into your Robinhood account, if you know you want to invest your money as soon as possible.
This is what Robinhood's home screen looks like. It shows you your total money in the center stocks and cash and how much you've made today below in green or red, depending. You can also select to view different time periods along the bottom. To trade a specific stock, you can search for it by clicking on the magnifying glass.
If you want to add it to your "watch list," you click the check mark on the right. When you click on the stock, this screen comes up. To buy shares in Groupon, you just click the buy button on the bottom. If you scroll down on that page, you can also read relevant news about the stock that Robinhood has pulled from the web. Once you've clicked the buy button, you are taken to the Market Buy page. Then you click review. This view will pop up, and you swipe up to submit your trade. You can even buy stock before the market is open, and Robinhood will complete it when the market opens.
When the market is closed, Robinhood's background appears black as it does now. When the market opens, the background switches to white. And when a stock trade is completed, Robinhood will send you a notification that looks like this. If you want to get rid of your Groupon stocks, you can go back to the stock's main page. If you own stock, a sell button will appear next to the buy button. The selling interface is similar to the buying one. Once you've sold your stock, you get a notification like this.
If you want to see an overview of your money, you can go to the account page. It shows you how much cash and stocks you have, as well as how much buying power you have. Buying power means how much money you can spend on stocks this second. One of the drawbacks of Robinhood is that you have to wait for the money you've made selling stock to be "settled" before you can reinvest it and buy a different stock. You can see how much money is still waiting to clear in the Unsettled Funds category.
This usually takes a few business days. If you want to cash out of Robinhood, you can easily transfer the funds back to your linked account by going clicking Transfer To You Bank from your account page.
