Investing with Margin

Margin lets you buy stocks with funds you borrow from your brokerage, similar to the way you can make purchases with a credit card.

Robinhood Gold is a margin account, which allows us to increase your buying power by two times and gives you access to your funds after you sell stock. We’ve worked hard to make the experience of using it seamless, cost-effective, and, most importantly, understandable.

Pricing and Commission-Free Trades

Commission-free trades aren’t going away. That’s our promise.

With Robinhood Gold you’ll only pay once per month, and that’s it. You won’t be charged interest or fees in addition to the fixed monthly charge for Robinhood Gold because we created a flat, once-per-month* pricing structure to help make the cost of using Robinhood Gold easy 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. Pay once per month and you’re done: we’ll charge the monthly subscription fee to your account every 30 days. If you don’t have cash available in your Robinhood account, we’ll debit the fee against your Gold Buying Power, which will be reflected as Gold Used in your app. 

Note: Your first consecutive 30 days are on us!

*For customers borrowing over $50,000 there’s an interest rate of 5% APR. For example, if you borrow $125,000, you’ll be charged interest on $75,000 ($125,000 - $50,000). The daily rate for borrowing $75,000 will be $10.41 ($75,000 x 5% /360).
