Serious question, why is Robinhood frowned upon? I know in the past that people stated that it was late to update stock prices but are there any other cons?
I like Robin Hood, it just more of long trading/investing tool for me on the go. If you're looking at making money by daily trading, and shorting stocks forget about it. It doesn't have the shorting option. Also loading up an app, setting a sale, as simple and quick as it may seem, in the real market prices could've dropped a lot.
PROS: no minimum balance, and no trade fees. If you buy a stock that will show improvement within 2 days or more, it's pretty good for that purpose.
CONS: Can't really make daily living off it as using e trade, scott trade, etc
