Robinhood allows users to buy and sell stocks and ETFs for free. It’s extremely easy to use, almost too easy. Studies have shown that overtrading has a negative impact on returns, so tread lightly. I recommend using Robinhood for the ETF strategies discussed on this blog. Robinhood can now be used to trade select cryptocurrencies.

WiseBanyon is the first free Robo-Advisor. They charge a small amount for tax loss harvesting and instant deposits.
