Why pay a stockbroker per trade when you can get a free app that does the same things for free?
Uh-huh. Robinhood is a tech-driven brokerage that’s a member of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority and Securities Investor Protection Corporation. It has an app that lets you trade internationally under a very secure platform, streams real-time market data, and receives notifications of significant events such as earnings, dividends, and splits.
Once you sign up and fund your account, you’ll get a free share of stock automatically.
And it’s not only that.
There’s 1 in 50 chances that you’ll get a share of Facebook, Apple, or Microsoft. One in five may end up in Ford, Sprint, or Verizon.
See? You don’t need your stock broker anymore.
