Recurring Investments

Recurring Investments

With Recurring Investments, we’ll automatically purchase shares for you on a schedule that you choose. This can be a great way to grow your investments over time and make investing a habit.

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 at the best available price per share.

Orders will be placed at 12:00 PM ET 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.

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.


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 at the best available price per share.

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.

Investors should consider the investment objectives and unique risk profile of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) carefully before investing. ETFs are subject to risks similar to those of other diversified portfolios. Leveraged and Inverse ETFs may not be suitable for all investors and may increase exposure to volatility through the use of leverage, short sales of securities, derivatives and other complex investment strategies.
Although ETFs are designed to provide investment results that generally correspond to the performance of their respective underlying indices, they may not be able to exactly replicate the performance of the indices because of expenses and other factors. A prospectus contains this and other information about the ETF and should be read carefully before investing. Customers should obtain prospectuses from issuers and/or their third party agents who distribute and make prospectuses available for review. ETFs are required to distribute portfolio gains to shareholders at year end. These gains may be generated by portfolio rebalancing or the need to meet diversification requirements. ETF trading will also generate tax consequences. Additional regulatory guidance on Exchange Traded Products can be found by clicking here.
Options transactions may involve a high degree of risk. To learn more about the risks associated with options trading, please review the options disclosure document entitled Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options, available here or through
