Consider to connect to Robinnhood

Recently has a connection to Robinhood. Maybe this free stock brokerage would be also a very nice opportunity to raise the popularity of quantconnect sometimes in future....

Very good idea indeed!

I agree great idea! Robinhood however still doesnt offer margin accounts though so it would still be very limited

Some software on github works with robinhood.

If anyone has the bandwidth, we're welcome to accepting a Robinhood brokerage implementation pull request on github :)

Here's the github page.

Robinhood now has the Robinhood Instant feature, so now less limited. Just thought I'd update this

Interesting, they're offering $10/mo for +$2k buying power - 0.5% interest.

Other brokerages typically offer access to the buying power for free and

charge when you use it longer than a day.

Yeah, it's definitely a different pricing model. According to them:

"We created a flat, once-per-month pricing structure to help make the cost of using leverage easier to understand."

Personally, for the type of investing I'm doing I would expect to quickly make that $10/mo back with the extra $2k of leverage so it's all splitting hairs.

Interesting. $10/mo = $120/yr = Equivalent of 6% interest.

Yeah, that certainly would cut into one's profits. The question of course would be if you can consistently turn that $2k into at least $2120 in a year. Thankfully you guys have written this lovely tool to help us determine that a little more conclusively!

Any word on this? Would love to be able to trade on Robinhood.

Robinhood won't share their official API. At least we couldn't find in the Robinhood Github page.
There are lots of unofficial ones, but we cannot rely on those.

We ask robinhood clients to lobby for us! Maybe they will hear you.

I emailed robinhood explaining the situation on August 28th. They sent me a canned response to which I replied saying that it did not answer my question.

On Nov 24th they FINALLY responded with a real person, here is what I got:
