How do I pay for Gold?

Your brokerage account will be charged the $5 monthly fee every 30 days at the beginning of each billing cycle. If you have access to margin investing and use more than $1,000 of margin, you’ll pay 6.5% yearly interest on the settled margin amount you use over $1,000. Your interest is calculated daily and charged to your account at the end of each billing cycle.

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 6.5% yearly interest.

Margin interest is calculated daily on your settled brokerage account cash balance at the end of the trading day. The daily interest rate is 6.5% divided by 360. For example, if you use $3,000 of margin, we’ll calculate $0.36 of daily interest as follows:

  • $3,000 margin used
  • $1,000 included with your Gold subscription, leaving $2,000 subject to interest
  • $2,000 * (6.5% / 360) = $0.36 per day

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

Note

The margin interest rate may change at any time without notice and at Robinhood Financial’s discretion

Robinhood Financial charges a standard margin interest rate of 10.5% and a margin interest rate of 6.5% for customers who subscribe to Gold.
