What do I do if I get a margin call?

You have two simple ways of resolving a margin call:

  • You can deposit additional funds from your bank account to increase your account value. This lets you to hold on to your stocks and allows them to potentially rebound.
  • Alternatively, you can sell some of your stocks, and we’ll use the proceeds from the sale to cover your margin call. This allows you to avoid depositing funds.

With Robinhood Gold, you get up to two times your normal buying power. This means you can buy up to twice as much stock and keep the profits. You can pick the amount of additional buying power you want when you’re signing up for Gold.
