I wanted to start investing in the stock market and I needed an easy to use platform since I am a beginner in investing.
Robinhood is a stock investing application and now they also have a website for registered users. Robinhood application is free to install and also free to join.
To get started
Register for an account: click here
If you register for an account using my link, we both get free stocks from Robinhood.
After making an account and verifying your email address, you should download the application.
Download the free application using the links below:
For Android users: click this link or copy and paste this on your browser tab: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.robinhood.android&hl=en_US
For iOs users: click this link or copy and paste the link below on your browser tab: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/robinhood-investing-no-fees/id938003185?mt=8
After installing the application, you should be ready to link a bank account to transfer funds to your portfolio. On the website version you can easily do this by clicking “Account” on the top right. Then click on “Banking”. Then click “Add New Account”.
After adding a bank account, you will now be able to transfer funds to your account. This will enable you to trade stocks in robinhood. Before investing, do learn about the risks involved in trading stocks. The stock market always goes up and down. You may gain or loose money when you invest. Always do research on the stocks that you are going to invest in.
The thing I like about robinhood is that it is very easy to use. It is an application that enables you to trade on the go. Another thing I like is the ability to trade stocks without paying for commissions (you can trade for free, $0 commission). There is a Pattern Day Trade (PDT) rule to be aware of. You can learn more about PDT in their help section. Also learn about taxes in their help section.
Have fun investing with Robinhood!
