Re: Newbie to stocks

Like another person said it matters on what you're trading. But when it comes to Robinhood you will generally only get some half decent executions on your trades. Also Robinhood doesn't have premarket and after hours trading still I think (though it may have changed as I think they're working on that), and they don't offer the possibility to short. They really are kind of a discount broker in that sense and if you're trading in a very volatile market I would recommend something like Etrade or one of the other big brokers instead as you're executions will be much better.

And if you want a learning source these guys offer some free info consistently that helped me keep in mind the basics before really starting to trade which I would recommend. Right here they offer a free checklist before every trade.

Good luck and I hope you do well starting out!

Hi Everyone,

Great to meet you all. I am rather new to the trading world and I just got started using Robinhood. I had some questions and would value the opinion of the community here.

What is your opinion of Robinhood as apposed to something like etrade or scotttrade?

Should I be investing under an LLC or as an individual?

San Francisco, CA
