Robinhood.com // Free

| Rockstar Review | Categories: Investing
Robinhood is the first app that offers FREE stock trades and no minimal balance requirements. It's not as fancy as some of the other brokerage firms out there, and you're limited to US-based stocks (the rub), however, if you're just starting out or want an easy place to store some of your stocks, this is a great place to do it.

What Bloggers Are Saying...

"Seamless - no fee - FREE stock trading on your phone. Finally a bit of tech has caught up with the aging and out dated wall street model."
"Robinhood is a very fun investing app. 100% free stock trading has been amazing. A great way to diversify your investments in high-risk high reward. Do your research before tying!"
"Commission fee stock trades!"
"It's an app only broker that has $0 trading fees and awesome referral program. I've used it the last 2 years and saved a butt load on trading fees since I've had none."
"I recently started using Robinhood and enjoy its free stock trading. I'm experimenting with some individual stocks and this app makes it quick and easy."
"I use this for free stock investing. Also, it's got a beautiful user interface."

Why bloggers think this app is overrated...

"Robinhood was my first foray into personal investing. Thankfully I only put in $300, but it was SO STRESSFUL. The app is super easy and functional, but something about making trades on my phone I found to be a little unnerving, and because I was totally new and didn't do enough research, the value of the stocks I bought was always going down. I eventually had to close my account and delete the app because it was too much accessibility."
