Recurring Investments

With recurring investments, we’ll automatically purchase shares for you on a schedule that you choose. This is a great way to make investing a habit and build your portfolio for the long-term.

How does it work?

Choose an amount and a frequency that works for you. When it’s time for your scheduled recurring investment, we’ll automatically purchase fractional shares for you.

Orders will be processed between 12:00 PM ET and market close on the scheduled date. If your Recurring Investment falls on a day that the market is closed, like a weekend or holiday, we’ll queue it for the next market day.

Note

On partial market holidays, recurring orders will process earlier in the day to accommodate for the early market close. Please note that in 2021, the day after Thanksgiving (November 26) will be the only partial market holiday.

If your order is for an amount higher than your instant deposit limit, a bank transfer for funds will begin on the scheduled date, but the order won’t be placed until the transfer completes, within 4-5 trading days. This transfer won’t count towards your instant deposit limit.

Example

You set up a $10 weekly recurring investment for MEOW, set to occur every Monday. When Monday rolls around, we’ll purchase $10 worth of MEOW.

This means if MEOW is currently trading at $40 per share, you’ll receive 0.25 shares of MEOW. If MEOW is trading at $20 per share the following Monday, you’ll receive an additional 0.5 shares, for a total of 0.75 shares.
