Introducing Multi-Leg Options Strategies

Unlock More Potential with Advanced Options Strategies

Options_Multi-Leg.png

Last December, we launched a more intuitive, cost-effective way for you to trade options. This was an important step in enabling you to easily manage all of your investments in one place. Since then, we’ve transacted over $2 billion in options premium volume, and we’re becoming one of the biggest options-trading platforms.  

Today, we’re introducing multi-leg options strategies on Robinhood, improving the options trading experience, and giving you more control over your investments. You can now trade multi-leg options strategies in a single order, and monitor these contracts together, commission-free.

Multi-leg options strategies have been one of the most frequently requested features by options investors on Robinhood. With multi-leg, you can trade Level 3 strategies such as iron condors, straddles, strangles, call and put debit spreads, and call and put credit spreads more efficiently, invest at a lower risk, and with less capital requirements. 

You can also monitor and close your options positions on Robinhood Web. In the near future, we’ll be bringing all options features available on the Robinhood App, to Web.

Here’s a quick overview of options trading on Robinhood:

  • Commission-free, always: No commission and no per contract fee upon buying or selling options, as well as no exercise or assignment fees. On other platforms, options traders pay up to $6.95 + $0.75 per contract and up to $19.99 upon exercising and assignment.
  • Discover: This feature guides you through placing options trades. To help facilitate the decision making process, we removed unnecessary jargon, and added educational resources to help you learn how to buy a call or a put, the associated risks, and more. Soon, we’ll also automatically surface the most common options strategies in the market, simplifying the otherwise cumbersome options trading experience.
  • Intuitively designed: We redesigned the options trading experience by replacing traditional, complicated options tables with a more intuitive design, highlighting the most important information.
  • Stay informed: Market data for options investors streams in real-time, keeping you in the loop on the latest.

We continuously strive to improve our products to provide you with the best experience, and empower people to participate in the American financial system. Here’s an update on the progress we’ve made over the past few months to deliver on this promise.

New Tools on Web

Just like on the Robinhood App, you can now track and invest in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency on Web. You can also monitor and close your options positions, with additional options functionality coming soon.

Collections, Now on the Robinhood App

We’re thrilled to bring one of your favorite Web features, Collections, to the Robinhood App. Collections help you discover new stocks organized by sectors such as “Oil and Gas,” “Entertainment,” and “Social Media,” as well as curated categories such as “Female CEOs.”

Robinhood Crypto

  • More States: Over the past few months, we’ve launched cryptocurrency trading in 13 states (AZ, CA, CO, FL, MA, MI, MS, MO, MT, NM, PA, UT, WI) and look forward to making cryptocurrency trading available in more states.
  • Feed: Share instant status updates when you buy or sell Bitcoin or Ethereum in the Robinhood App, or simply tune in to the discussion to stay on top of what’s happening in the cryptocurrency world.
  • Price Alerts: We’re rolling out real-time push notifications to alert you of significant price swings for tradeable cryptocurrency on your Watchlist.

Robinhood Options

We recently released Discover, a feature that guides investors through placing options trades. To help facilitate the decision making process we removed unnecessary jargon, and added educational resources to help you learn how to buy a call or a put, the associated risks, and more.

So, What’s Next?

Over the next couple months, we’ll be launching new tools for options trading across our platform such as more advanced options strategies, and more comprehensive discovery tools to support them. Robinhood Crypto will continue to launch in more states, and you’ll be able to track and invest in additional coins. You’ll also be able to better keep track of and manage your stock referrals on Web.

We don’t want to spoil all the surprises, so check back here or on Twitter @RobinhoodApp for the latest.

Robinhood Raises $363 Million to Expand Product Lineup

The Series D Funding Was Led by DST Global

At Robinhood, we’re guided by the belief that America’s financial system should work for everyone – not only the wealthy. In the past few months, we launched more products to further our mission of democratizing financial services, and brought your investments together on one platform. We released a web platform with research and discovery tools, introduced commission-free options trading, and launched Robinhood Crypto, with commission-free cryptocurrency trading, now available in 10 states (CA, MA, MO, MT, CO, MS, WI, NM, FL, and MI).

Our platform has also grown significantly, reaching over four million users, cementing Robinhood Financial as the fastest-growing brokerage ever.

On the heels of this growth, we recently raised $363 million in capital, valuing Robinhood at $5.6 billion. The Series D round of funding was led by DST Global, with participation from new investors Iconiq, Capital G, Sequoia Capital, and Kleiner Perkins. Existing investors included NEA and Thrive Capital.

We’ll deploy the capital by accelerating our product expansion even more, investing in our infrastructure and operations, and hiring more world-class talent to join us along the way.

Stay tuned for updates on new products and features, as well as trading availability for Robinhood Crypto.
