Say goodbye to trading commissions

And hello to the future of trading

Robinhood started with the idea that a technology-driven brokerage could operate with significantly less overhead.

We cut out the fat that makes other brokerages costly — hundreds of storefront locations and manual account management.

Zero-dollar commissions are available for self-directed individual or joint cash brokerage accounts that trade listed and OTC equity securities via web or mobile devices. See our Commission and Fee Schedule for more details.
