Robinhood Investment App


Recommended Posts



I'm sure there's a lot of investors on here and others that want to get involved in investing.  I came across this app on Facebook and wondered what some of you all thought about the possibility of have a free trading app?


I'm not selling anyone on this, not trying to get anyone to sign-up, all though I am using the referral link they gave me just in-case someone does sign-up, i move up the wait list.


Anyone else use Scott trade, e-trade?? Online trading?  Would free trades help in investing? I'm curious what people have to say.  I'm a little late to the savings and investing party, but this could possibly help me catch up on the time I'm behind.


Just to reiterate, I'm not advertising it, selling it, or anything to that effect, just curious.

Seems a little thin on details like how much is the interest. There is another app out there that rounds up your credit card purchases and takes the difference and invests it. I think its called Acorns. The fees are a little on the steep side until you get to a certain dollar amount.

I've been on the wait list for almost a year.. Should be a matter of a couple days until I can download it, my position on the wait list went down 10,000 overnight. I currently use TD Ameritrade because I got discounts on options trading when I was a student, but when I get this app I'll be moving everything over.

I have been using it for a month or so...

I almost lost my place as I ignored the email and they only give you a few days (three) to complete the registration.


I did not have to refer anyone...

The only thing I don't like is that I cant remove an account that I already verified.

I linked it with a Wells Fargo checking account but now I can't remove it.

    • It’s a neat and seemingly valid / effective strategy that, at least from my understanding, is only really used by VZW
    • Those are usually left over from the initial AWS deployment, so all run B13/B66 with support for BC0/BC1 (although that’s been shut off on most sites). No NR. Sites with the later Ericsson radios got an OTA update and broadcast B2. On those sites, a B5 OTA update was also available (and tested), but ultimately rolled back. Putting up all that power/spectrum severely degraded the B13 output.  The site atop Crystal Mountain is another story and uses the same setup as the site on the ridge near Neilton. These antennas were selected for their vertical beamwidth. Most modern directional antennas have small vertical beamwidths and would require extreme downtilt to cover the road next to a steep ridge. Thus, they would have a severely limited coverage footprint beyond the road. Omnis can be a better choice in these instances, especially when there’s LoS to the coverage objective (since they’ll generally have lower gain figures). Omnis also don’t run in to the horizontal sector edge problem, which can be difficult to optimize for with directional antennas that have complex or irregular 3D gain profiles. That’s why on a lot of sites on mountains, you’ll see wider antennas used. For example, the Verizon site on Joyce Ridge has three sectors with 80-degree HBW antennas. 
    • Do you know what RAN is behind those Omni's? LTE (bands?) are they pushing any NR through them? Very curious   edit: I guess I could check cellmapper etc but you might know more nuance!
    • N41 here has been expanded from 140Mhz to 180Mhz.  Speeds seem the same so they just need to work on backhaul
    • I noticed today that T-mobile has shut of B41 LTE in the Louisville area and widened the 2nd n41 carrier to 80MHz. That just leaves them with 5x5 B12, 10x10 B2, and two 10x10 B66 carriers on LTE, everything else is in NR (besides their 2G network). They have 20x20 n71, 20x20 n25, 5x5 n25, and 180MHz n41.
