Options Investing

There’s no commission fee to buy or sell options, nor is there a monthly fee. You also don’t need to have a Gold subscription to get started–your Instant account supports options trading too!

A driving commitment to offer our customers the best experience at low cost, coupled with the ability to create state-of-the-art technology pushed us to develop commission-free options trading. Because our entire business is built on technology, we can afford to cut out the antiquated overhead many other brokerages maintain, and the savings get passed on to you.

  • No base fees.
  • No exercise and assignment fees.
  • No per-contract commission.

Keep in mind, other fees such as trading (non-commission) fees, Gold subscription fees, wire transfer fees, and paper statement fees may apply to your brokerage account. Please see Robinhood Financial’s fee schedule to learn more.

Note

If you start options trading in your Cash account, we’ll automatically upgrade you to an Instant account.

Disclosures

Options trading entails significant risk and is not appropriate for all investors. Certain complex options strategies carry additional risk. Robinhood Financial does not guarantee favorable investment outcomes and there is always the potential of losing money when you invest in securities, or other financial products. Investors should consider their investment objectives and risks carefully before investing. To learn more about the risks associated with options, please read the Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options before you begin trading options. Supporting documentation for any claims, if applicable, will be furnished upon request.

Margin trading involves interest charges and risks, including the potential to lose more than deposited or the need to deposit additional collateral in a falling market. Before using margin, customers must determine whether this type of trading strategy is right for them given their specific investment objectives, experience, risk tolerance, and financial situation.

For more information please see Robinhood Financial’s Margin Disclosure Statement, Margin Agreement and FINRA Investor Information. These disclosures contain information on Robinhood Financial’s lending policies, interest charges, and the risks associated with margin accounts.
