Didn't Robinhood have a huge tech issue where people couldn't access the app and were cut off from their money and ability to trade last year? I'm surprised they weathered that, hope they don't make it through this fiasco.

People are already filing suits. Arbitrarily stopping the poors from making money to protect the ultra rich.

I'm sure the feds will come up with some excuse for letting everyone lose money (except Wall Street). Something like "users online admitted that they were holding and buying more stocks in order to purposefully harm the hedge funds, and this is not protected trading activity."

They have outages every few months.

 

I'll have more to say when I compose myself, but today is so beyond fucked.

No, let people willing to fight this battle duke it out. Once this is over loads will cash out before you hear about it and you’ll just lose what you put in.

If there is one silver lining about this entire ordeal, it's that Democrats and Republicans seem to be on the same page at holding these trading platforms accountable for trying to fuck over the retail investor today.

Anyone have a platform they recommend?

 

I use E*Trade for my ESPP and other long term ETFs, mutual funds, and stocks, but I'm looking for something that has instant deposits and instant settles like Robinhood, because after I close my current positions in the next few weeks I am done with them.

 

I really like the daily visualization of Webull and use it daily for real time quotes and data, but apparently it's owned by a Chinese firm.

If you have a couple hundred bucks you aren’t too fond of, TDAmeritrade accounts are free to open. It’s basically gambling, but fun AF gambling.

From what I can gather online, TD isn't letting you open new positions.
