What’s Robinhood Gold?

Robinhood Gold is a suite of powerful tools, data, and features designed to take your investing to the next level. With Gold, you can get access to four premium features:

  • Bigger Instant Deposits*

  • Professional research from Morningstar

  • Level II market data from Nasdaq

  • Access to margin investing**

You can try Gold for free for the first 30 days (the $5 monthly fee will be waived). If you choose to use margin investing during your trial period, you’ll still be charged 4.25% yearly interest on any amount you borrow over $1,000.

*Bigger Instant Deposits are only available if your Instant Deposits status is in good standing.

**Margin investing is an optional Gold feature. Not all investors will be eligible to invest on margin.

How much does Gold cost?

For $5 a month, you get access to Gold’s premium features, and your first $1,000 of margin is included. After your free trial ends, you will begin your first 30-day billing cycle. You will be charged $5 at the beginning of each billing cycle.

If you invest on margin, you’ll pay 4.25% yearly interest on the amount you use over $1,000. Your interest is calculated daily and charged to your brokerage account at the end of each billing cycle.

If the Gold fee changes, we will notify you 30 days in advance so that you have the opportunity to cancel your subscription.

Margin investing isn’t for me—can I still use Robinhood Gold?

Yes! We’ve built Robinhood Gold to be for every investor, whether or not you want to invest on margin. You can choose to not enable margin investing when you sign up for Robinhood Gold and use all of the other premium features.

Please note that if you are approved for options trading, margin may be required to satisfy exercise or assignment, even if you have the Robinhood Gold Margin Investing feature turned off.
