    Just so happens I started trading again with Robinhood after basically not doing anything for a decade.

    Welcome back. We are still working on a few things around here, but most everything seems to be working well.

    I received an invitation to Robinhood, but didn't want to go through the hassle of changing brokers right now.

    So, tell us... how do you like it?

    It's been fabulous for me - I had a very small amount to start with and have been playing with trading in a 3-7 day window. With trade fees, I would have only been able to buy 2 or 3 stocks. I have 30 right now, and having real money invested is teaching me things because I'm paying attention.

    I don't know much about Robinhood. I'll have to check it out.

    Thanks! Just finished my first month with it. Up 2.8%, beat Dow by 3.5%. Just bumbling around, we'll see if I can keep it up.
