    This has been a fantastic app in all the time that I’ve been using it. Since about 2017. There have been many new additions since then. One of them being analyst ratings where we can see how many analysts provided a rating, and what percent said said buy, hold, or sell. This has been quite a useful gauge (along with others) for investing. That being said we all know time marches on and opinions change. Unfortunately I have not noticed any relevance to time in this analyst ratings feature. Perhaps these ratings are updated weekly. However, without knowing at what time the ratings were made it’s hard to tell how a stock, like GOOG, would be rated after some news comes out, like the antitrust inspection. Surely we can look at the rating description to see if it mentions anything about this news, but it still doesn’t address the main concern. That is when did each analyst rating actually happen. 30 could have been before a big news break and perhaps only 7 after. Making for a possibly inaccurate rating. Perhaps the news has nothing to do with these analysts ratings and it’s all about the companies numbers. In such case public opinion has no impact on ratings and thusly time is not as important. However it would still be nice to know when the ratings were made or last updated.

    It’s easy to understand (once you get familiar with stock trading terminology), and it makes trading stocks feel simple. One suggestion I do have is when I’m looking at the line graph of a stock that I have shares in, I’d like to be able to see visually on the graph where I jumped in at. So say I bought some shares at $4.67/share and I held the shares for 2 months. If I click on the 3 month view of that stock, I’d like to see a little pin or something on the date that I bought my shares at. That way I can see in an instant whether I bought while the price was high or low or mid. Also it helps just in general to see what spikes I’ve held my shares through and which dips I’ve been along for the ride for. I could see this being particularly helpful in situations where I’m buying/selling a lot of shares quickly, or I’m trying to study the markets and look at my past investments. We would be able to notice patterns in our trading habits like if we are overly aggressive on a regular basis, or if we are consistently too passive. I’ve noticed just by my own tracking that I tend to sell a little early. But if I were trading on much larger scales with a lot more money, I wouldn’t be able to mentally keep track of everything. So without writing it down, it would be tough to look at these stocks and remember when I bought at. Just a thought.

    Overall, not a bad app for investing. Has good details on certain option trades. Great for beginners. The App falls short when it comes to how much it can handle, the system easily gets overwhelmed by the amount of traders and buying/selling can be delayed, costing you money. Another issue I have is that Quarterly reports of stocks are delayed, so I have to get my news elsewhere.

    I joined Robinhood a little over 3 months ago in Feb 2020 after I heard Clark Howard talk about on the radio. I think it is a great asset to the common man who doesn’t have thousands of dollars to invest in stock all at once. Robinhood is a way for the average person to study and learn about different stocks themselves and decide where they want to put their money. Then by way of the phone app they can check their stocks all day every day. A person can invest as much as they want, pennies or more. I’ve been able to invest over 3,000 dollars in these 3 make months by taking some savings and then doing the best part, which is taking any disposable income I have and buying stock with it. I never stop for fast food or buy anything but necessities now because I’ve found that I’d rather take the $5.00 or whatever it is that I would spend on junk food etc and buy stock. With the virus canceling all sports I’ve found watching my investments on Robinhood be more entertaining especially since I actually have a stake in the game now. The only thing I do wish Robinhood would do is explain the gold mining daily market better. I’ve put large amounts of money into a few of these and then all of a sudden the stock totally changes. These companies send out information but for an average guy they are too hard to understand. Thank you.

    Very informative - I think I like this and can do it professionally :). Easy to understand and use. Robinhood takes the fear, guessing and uncalculated risk out so that even a newby like me can do it. Also, the app has a built in newsfeed, keeping you updated in real-time on what's going on in the market and allows me to do my research on stocks, etc. I will recommend Robinhood to anyone who wants to get into trading - you can learn as you go.

    Horrible customer support. I tried making an account with all of my personal information (SSN, Full name, Address, etc.) and was met with an error saying I had an account already. I've heard of the app years before but didn't remember if I had made an account so I contacted customer support to verify if it was one of alternative emails and it turns out it was an email that I have never heard of but used my name in the address. I asked for help to resolve that and ended up getting ghosted. TWICE.

    This app if it works is great has a great user experience very clean and easy to use. That being said. I never was able to experience this as I've spent an ungodly amount of time trying to make an account as the account will be pending for all eternity I contacted support who said to re submit my Id and I did only for nothing to happen and to never hear from them ever again even after emailing them a second time for help. Even if I did get an account approved it will not let me link my bank.

    Terrible! After signing up and trying to link the account with BBVA I experienced errors. Alteady frustrating, only after contacting support I was told they do not support BBVA accounts anymore. Mind that I use my BBVA everywhere but that's not the point. It's deceitful to have an option on the menu that turns out you can't use! All in all, just a big waste of time and a frustrating experience. If you're looking for an investing app go with SoFi. Much better under every single aspect!

  • Moving away from using Robinhood Jun 8, 2020

    I signed up for Robinhood a few years back. I didn’t know much about investing but I thought I would give it a try. I found the act of buying and selling stocks to be easy but I didn’t like the lack of other features like the ability to look at detailed charts or even create price alerts. After a few months I withdrew my money. Fast forward 2 years later and I thought I would give it another try. I imagined that in 2 years the app would have made some substantial improvements. I was wrong. The functionality is still the same and there still are no advanced features like charting or price alerts. I do not like the pattern day trade rule Robinhood has setup. I do not trade with margin and only use my available cash. On most other platforms with a cash account you avoid this rule but Robinhood uses it no matter what. After 4 trades you are banned from trading for 90 days. Also, this app crashes and glitches A LOT! On high trading days I have seen many people complain that their app isn’t working. I’ve also had issues with my chart matching my activity and this does not make me fee very confident that the app is tracking my balance accurately. Overall this app could be good for people who want to learn the process of buying and selling stocks and are going to basically “set it and forget it”. If you plan to be an active trade this app is not for you. As soon as I can withdraw all my money I will be switching over to another broker.

    This app support portrait mode only in Android. Another issue I have with this app is it is too complicated to make adjustments in your stock selling or buying. Seems like the user have to completely cancel the previous order before making another new offer. Also, one have to refresh the page before u are allowed to place a new order. It will be very helpful to rectify or improve the GUI.

  • Amazing for starting out in stocks Oct 28, 2019

    By Gmackn
    I am on Robin Hood everyday when the market open. Trades are free and there are truly no fees to pay unless you get the gold membership. I love this app so much. It is easy to start out because you don’t have to pay per trade like most companies charge. And that can be pricy especially for someone starting with only a few hundred dollars. You cant even start out if you are getting charged 10 dollars per trade. Not only that but Robinhood also trades options which are a great bonus if you’re into that. Everything is very convenient and easy to follow. They’ve had quite a few big updates that have helped out like candlestick charts and now their debit card system. I hope you guys keep growing because it helps me and my investments grow. All in all this is great for someone looking to start their stock portfolio at a cheap price. I do have to say that it is better to get information on investing else where but that’s not a big deal because when investing I feel like you search a million websites for the best information anyways. I’m sure there’s stuff I missed but I truly love this app. Thanks so much developers for making this. You guys rock!!! One more thing. Every time I have contacted customer support they have been so helpful and have gotten back to me either within the day or the next day!!

    Great TRADING APP, easy to use and fast. And the right amount of resources and information you need to trade and trade options. The only downside is that ROBINHOOD does not have an EARNINGS CALENDAR. It should be easy for them to add.. I hope they add it soon. I am working with 2 apps to trade. Robinhood and Another Calendar App. Thanks 👍

  • Great But Buggy Aug 3, 2020

    By UMM BusRider
    Robinhood has a great concept going for them. They’ve targeted a niche area of the market which caused a domino effect for the rest of the brokers. Robinhood moves other brokers away from fees per trade and change the game for good. However with that they provide an extremely good UI which is simplistic and easy to use. This is especially good for newer traders and investors as well as it making it a pleasant and seamless experience. But with that being said there are few bugs that they need to work one. Starting with the accuracy of the charts of portfolios. I’ve noticed and a few friends of mine have noticed a few offages (Money I put in + growth) doesn’t always add up. My next issues is that on busy trading day Robinhood needs to increase their server capacity. I don’t like to wake up to either Robinhood unable to make a trade for me because of “high volume” or “May experience delays due to higher traffics” but you get what you pay for and in this case I’m not complaining to much. But over all if you’re looking to start getting into the investment game and you know where to start I would recommend using Robinhood. I mean I did recommend it to all my friends. Ever app has up and downs and I’m certain Robinhood will eventually work out the kinks and be ever better than it is now. They’ve come along way from when the app just rolled out.

    Getting better, no disruptions on my phone, also, nice update. Any way to incorporate bollinger bands? I think that would be a huge asset to your app. I use my phone to make quick trades at work sometimes and always have to go elsewhere to see more info. I know that you can't really see too much on a cell phone, even a large screen phone like mine, but it helps. Thanks for your services and your time.

    The latest update has changed the font used for the Position and Statistics sections on the stock details page way too small. It's now much more difficult to read. There is a large amount of whitespace on the right hand side of the page that could be used by increasing the font size back to what it was. Please fix this bad layout.

  • Better money movement strategies Mar 12, 2020

    By J.SakH2HG
    I really am enjoying Robinhood. I would like to say that there is one thing I’m not fond of however. That is the trade and sell in a single day feature. Three trades and sells in 5 trade days is just nonsense. You are telling your investors that they must take a loss. Or that they can’t make money. I get the concept as to why you do this. Again though it is unfair. We read up on a stock that is predicted to do well and invest money, that same day the stock starts to take a dive and we can’t pull out without being sited for a possible “day trade”. I’m new to all of this like many of your investors using this app are. I think implementing something for the little guy would be more fair. You say it’s ok if you have $25,000 invested on the app. Well a lot of us don’t. And I’d like to be able to move my money where I’d like when I like and maybe you guys should consider upping that trade number to 5 per 5 trading days or “week”. Then impose a few for any there after! The idea of being restricted from getting out of risky stocks is not fair. Pretty much saying that you need to put your money into blue chips or futures and let it sit as opposed to buying a stock and looking to turn a profit that day or week. Sorry if I haven’t articulated myself the way an investor with years of experience would have. Although like I said I myself along with many others using Robinhood are beginners. Thank you.

    Was a great app until last update. Now the stock prices on my watch list do not move until I click on one of the stocks. Its frustrating when trying to watch price movement on multiple stocks. Also, the daily chart for stocks sometimes fails to show up or takes a while to load when I click on a stock. My phone is a galaxy S10 so not a problem on my end.

  • Great for people new to investing, but don’t keep any serious amounts of money on here May 9, 2020

    By G0rilla210
    Robinhood is a great way for people new to investing to get their feet wet. It’s simple, straightforward, and has a clean interface. However, people that are looking to invest serious amounts of money should look elsewhere. I want to really emphasize this part, because I wish somebody did for me. DO NOT USE THIS APP/BROKERAGE IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO INVEST SERIOUS AMOUNTS OF MONEY. Trying to withdraw any money at all has been an ongoing migraine, to put it politely. Every attempt to withdraw funds has been disabled for whatever reason. (Keep in mind, feeding more money to this brokerage doesn’t yield any issues like this) Their support is a joke compared to competitors. There’s no phone number to speak to a human being, which is hilariously negligent when considering this is people’s money they’re in the business in. Multiple emails to support have yet to be answered more than a week after encountering a case. This is an amateur operation. I’ll repeat the heading because I wish somebody told this to me. Robinhood is great for people new to investing to learn, but once you’re ready to actually start investing seriously, use Etrade or TD Ameritrade. Or any other competitor who will give you your money when you ask.

  • WAS a big fan.... Nov 7, 2018

    By fridgefullofrootbeer
    I signed up with Robinhood because a friend of mine said it was great. I had it for months and it was great. It displayed my earnings accurately, losses accurately and my equity. I was a bit disappointed I couldn’t buy a lot of the penny stocks I was looking into. So because of that fact I signed up with a new app that offered every stock I was interested in. After using the other app for a very short period, I decided I didn’t like it because it was hard to decipher. Full disclosure, I’m very green when it comes to buying/selling stocks. So because Robinhood was so easy to use and pretty cut and dry I transferred my stocks back. In hindsight, I never should have switched. Since coming back NONE, absolutely NONE, of my numbers match. Even though going through the history of my purchases, Robinhood has what I bought everyone of my stocks for, they can’t transfer the average cost of each, which in-turn throws every other number off. After contacting the company, they tell me there is nothing I nor the company can do to resolve it. I’ll be looking for a different app to use. Lesson learned: If you start with Robinhood, stay with Robinhood. I would not recommend anyone to transfer from another app to this one.

    The new UI theme sucks. Maby years later and still no way to select different modes (total gain, % change, etc.) to different groups (stocks, watchlist) while on the website you can easily do just that. Once account is closed you cannot open it back. But will continue to receive empty monthly statements till the day the Feds shut them down.

  • Wow. What type of support is this. Jun 1, 2020

    By T-Boi88
    Robinhood has been FAR from helpful during this time in the world. During this pandemic, I was I’m trying to make a little money on the side so I started trading with robinhood everything was going fine until I was unable to cancel one of my bank transfers (i sent it to the wrong bank account) I looked on the support website. It said there should be a cancellation button on the transfer I just have to look in the history. Okay cool. I go and go to cancel it. No cancel button. Remind you (I have screenshots) I just initiated the transfer not less than 5 minutes ago and I can’t cancel it?? Okay. Little sus because little did I know once one transfer doesn’t go through your account is “restricted” meaning robinhood has your Money hostage until they deem necessary. I’ve contacted support countless times only to be responded to with the same old “coronavirus” excuse. I HAVENT HEARD FROM THE SUPPORT ALL WEEK IT SAYS 1-3 BUSINESS DAYS NOT 7! Granted it’s only like 150$ I don’t have access to but it’s the principle of it all really. This app obviously states one thing and clearly doesn’t follow through and the new update is not what’s up visually. As soon as I am able to I am pulling every cent I have from this app. Yahoo Finance is 100x better, accurate and has ACTUAL SUPPORT. Not this shady emailing system they have going on over here Update: I was directed to a reviews website. None of my emails have been answered yet... this company is a joke
