The lack of being able to buy fractional shares is what limits Robinhood the most; however, this doesn't hold you back from reinvesting your dividends just because you can't DRIP.... In the end, unless you have enough dividend income to cover full shares, you'll just have to bundle it with new cash to reinvest, which is what most investors should be doing anyways (consistently investing).
I don't wanna have to pay attention to reinvesting a div so I only users for stocks that don't have div

Compare the fees side by side, but also the indices closely line up as well for the passively managed funds.

Chances are, you'll be fine sticking with Moneybox, if the offer similar sh*t as Vanguard: low fees, variety of index funds, fractional shares, DRIP, etc.
Cheers playboi.

Up over £600 in my vanguard so far. Invest just a touch over £3000. Mainly the lifestyle 80 fund. Just thinking I literally put everything on my card. Rarely use coins so maybe also to use that as well.

Too many fees on Acorn. If you’re keeping you money in taxable accounts, Robinhood at a minimum. Otherwise, the big dogs are charging $0 commissions now like E*TRADE, Fidelity, etc.
What's the minimum investment

$0 to open an account. You can go as low as $1 to start if you want, as you can purchase fractional shares.

Fairly new to investing myself, I use acorn, def a great app. As far as fractional shares and DRIP I use stash app and Merrill edge. Not tryna get rich quick but def not tryna work my whole life so, god willing 15/20 years got a nice lil nest egg for me and my kids.

I have used the Stash app...is that similar? That is really good and I had 4 stocks only putting $5 a week on each..nike, netflix, amazon...i forgot the other one...so $20 a week since i really didnt know what I was doing. I think when I cashed out last year I was up 7 percent from what I put in.


Im going back next month. A friend at work told me to try it out and I liked it alot.
