Upgrading to Gold
You can upgrade to Gold on the Robinhood app or on the Robinhood website.
When you upgrade to Robinhood Gold, you gain access to premium features such as professional research and Level II market data, and instant transfers up to your Portfolio Value starting at $5,000 (up to a max of $50k), rather than just $1,000 with a standard instant account. Additionally, if Robinhood approves your account for margin trading, you will be able to trade on margin with Gold.
You can try Robinhood Gold for free for the first 30 days. After your free trial ends, you will be charged $5 for Gold, and every 30 days thereafter.
The free trial only covers the $5 monthly fee and does not cover your margin interest. This means that if you borrow over $1,000, you’ll still pay interest at the end of your billing cycle.
Once you place an equity trade with Robinhood, you can upgrade to Gold in the app or on the website.
