What's Robinhood Gold?
Robinhood Gold is a premium margin account. It’s an advanced version of your Robinhood brokerage account, and is our vision of how the next generation of experienced investors will interact with the stock market. We believe that even complex tools like leverage can be made focused, straightforward, and powerful.
Gold was built in a uniquely Robinhood way, by carefully designing the details, and cutting the confusing hidden costs. Simply pay a flat fee every month to get access to extended trading hours and additional buying power.
Are my trades still commission-free?
Commission-free trades are not going away. That’s our promise.
Our mission is to democratize access to the financial markets to everyone. It’s the reason we started Robinhood, and it’s the pursuit of this goal that gives meaning to everything we build. Part of this mission is offering the best financial tools in the most cost-effective way possible.
What's Gold Buying Power?
Gold Buying Power is the money Robinhood Financial lends you to buy stocks in the market.
Having more buying power can give you more flexibility with your cash, and can let you take advantage of investment opportunities without depositing money from your bank.
You cannot buy options or cryptocurrencies with Gold Buying Power.
What're the risks of using Gold Buying Power?
Robinhood Gold is a margin account, so there are additional risks and responsibilities you should be aware of.
Buying stocks using margin amplifies the gains and losses in your portfolio. We’ve built Robinhood Gold to help protect you from these additional risks by including checks and notifications to help keep you informed about the health of your account.
Do I get charged interest on top of the monthly charge for using Gold Buying Power?
No. You won’t be charged interest or fees in addition to the fixed monthly charge for Robinhood Gold. We created a flat, once-per-month pricing structure to help make the cost of using Robinhood Gold easier to understand.*
Rather than starting with an interest rate, and working out how long you may want to hold the stocks you purchased with Gold, you’ll know exactly how much you’re spending up front.
With Robinhood Gold you’ll only pay once per month, and that’s it. Trades are always commission-free.
**For customers borrowing over $50,000 there is a rate of 5% APR.
What're extended trading hours?
With extended trading hours, you’ll be able to trade an extra two hours each day:
- Pre-market hours: 30 minutes earlier starting at 9:00am EST
- After-hours: continues for 120 minutes (two hours) until 6:00pm EST
Traditionally, the markets are open from 9:30am EST - 4:00pm EST during normal business days.
