Robinhood [ Free ]
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.
