How is margin investing interest calculated?

The first $1,000 of margin is included with your $5 monthly fee. If you borrow more, you’ll pay 2.5% yearly interest on any margin used over $1,000.

Your interest is calculated daily on your settled cash balance at the end of the trading day. The daily interest rate is 2.5% divided by 360. For example, if you use $3,000 of margin, we’ll calculate $0.14 of daily interest as follows:

  • $3,000 margin used
  • $1,000 included with your monthly fee, leaving $2,000 subject to interest
  • $2,000 * (2.5% / 360) = $0.14 per day

We’ll charge your account every 30 days at the end of your Gold billing cycle. You can always check the current status of your billing cycle and view unpaid interest in the Gold billing section of your account overview (Account tab > Menu > Investing).


Robinhood can increase or decrease the interest rate at its discretion and will provide 30 days advance notice of any changes to the interest rate via email.
