Robin Hood - free stock trading

Postby Tyler » Mon Feb 05, 2018 10:17 am

Robinhood isn't new, but wilkins and I started using it, mainly with penny stocks. We've gotten lucky and have seen 40% gains in just a few days. We know this isn't substantial but it's fun people around with. I put enough money in that I feel invested, but wouldn't be upset if I lost it.

Friday was the worst day for the market in 2 years, so our fun may be over soon.

It could be Apple, Ford, or Sprint!

I'll look at it after work tonight.

Looks like Wags and Blake used my code, but neither of them finished an account. It's weird, I created my account on Wednesday last week and it took minutes to get approved. My coworker did on Thursday and still hasn't gotten approved. Are you two waiting for the same reason?

You guys decided to join on one of the worst stock market days ever. Good work.

I had started it at work but didn't know my bank account info off hand. Finished now. Can't wait to be a rich day trader.

You can only do 5 day trades a week until you get in trouble or need $25,000 in funds.

Groupon is good! That's over $5. I got the same $3 energy stock that I get most of the time. Thanks for picking me over Benny.

Good luck everyone. Let's hope the market recovers from last week. The penny stocks are so violate that I can't tell if the market impacted them or not last week.

It's been one month. After my first few days I was up 40%. I've added more money, lost money, but should close out the month back at my 40% gain. *knock on wood*

This was a rough week for me. I'm 30 bucks over initial, but I'm holding onto a few stocks, so its been boring.
