What’s New on Robinhood

Candlestick charts, discovery tools, and more

Over the past few months, we’ve been working on a number of new features to make Robinhood even better. Here are the latest additions to the platform:

Introducing Candlestick Charts

We’ve received daily requests to add candlestick charts to Robinhood, and over the next few weeks, we’ll be bringing them to the stock, options, and cryptocurrency pages on mobile.

Candlestick charts help investors better understand how prices move. While a line chart shows you only the close price, each candlestick shows you four pieces of information: the open, high, low, and close price during a certain time period.

To view candlestick charts, tap the candlestick icon on the bottom right corner of any stock, options, or cryptocurrency chart. Learn more here.

More Research & Discovery Tools

To help you make better-informed investment decisions, we’re bringing some of your favorite web features to mobile, including:

  • Analyst Ratings: Read commentary and view the buy, hold, and sell ratings from Wall Street analysts.
  • People Also Bought: Discover other stocks investors bought on Robinhood, including competitors, suppliers, and more.
  • About: Find quick facts about stocks, such as the company’s CEO, its founding date, and where it’s headquartered.

Explore: More Information at a Glance

Now you can see top movers, popular Collections, and recent news when you tap the search icon in the upper right corner of the app.

Options, Now on Web

We’re bringing all options features available on mobile to web. Now you can open, close, and monitor your options positions, as well as sign up to trade options, on web.

In case you missed it, we’re also adding over 250 global stocks to Robinhood, and recently launched free extended market hours for everyone. We hope you enjoy these updates – look out for more features in the coming months!

Introducing Global Stocks on Robinhood

Invest in over 250 global companies like Tencent, Nintendo, or Adidas, commission-free

Many of you have expressed interest in investing in global companies that aren’t currently available on Robinhood. Today, we’re thrilled to announce that we’ll be rolling out American Depositary Receipts (ADRs) on Robinhood, adding over 250 new stocks of global companies.

Invest in companies you love from around the world, from countries including China, Japan, Germany, Canada, and the United Kingdom. Some of the most frequently searched companies, such as Tencent, Nintendo, and Adidas, will be available on Robinhood, along with many others. Search “New on Robinhood” on mobile or web to view the full list.

In the coming months, we’ll also expand the global list with stocks from France, including most frequently searched companies Ubisoft Entertainment, LVMH, and Michelin.

ADRs allow you to invest in companies that are based outside the U.S., and aren’t listed on U.S. stock exchanges such as Nasdaq and NYSE. You may also choose to invest in global stocks to diversify your portfolio. As with U.S. stocks, you can invest in ADRs on Robinhood commission-free. Learn more about ADRs on our Help Center.

Stay tuned for more updates soon!

Extended Market Hours, Free for Everyone

You can now invest pre-market and after-hours, for free

To stay true to our goal of offering everyone the best financial products, we’re making extended market hours available to everyone on Robinhood, for free. 

Standard U.S. market hours are from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm Eastern. With extended market hours, you’ll be able to invest from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm Eastern. This means you can start investing 30 minutes before the regular market opens, and continue investing two hours after it closes. 

Here are two scenarios where having access to invest in extended market hours can be beneficial:

Earnings Announcements
Companies may announce quarterly earnings reports before or after regular market hours, resulting in price swings. With extended market hours, you can make investment decisions during these times of volatility.
 
Activity in Foreign Markets
News and activity in foreign markets, such as in the European and Asian markets, can affect U.S. stocks despite occurring outside of regular U.S. market hours. With the market hours extended, you can take action when you need to. 

Before today, investing during extended market hours was one of the features in Robinhood Gold. As a Robinhood Gold customer, you still have access to additional buying power and bigger instant deposits from your bank account. You can make changes to your Robinhood Gold settings in the app or on web.

Bringing extended market hours to everyone drastically improves the core Robinhood experience. We’re always working to make Robinhood even better, so stay tuned for more updates soon!
