Free stock trading program from the United States (US), Robinhood, adds several hundred shares of global companies to its platform following the way major investment bank, JPMorgan, competes using a similar no-fee process.
Competed by JPMorgan, Some of these trusted Android Online Trading Applications Strengthen Service
Robinhood announced on Tuesday (28/08/2018) that it will add 250 shares to companies from Japan, China, Germany, the UK and Canada. Some of the shares, known as American depositary receipts (ADRs), will be available for trading routine early Tuesday while shares of several companies from France will be added in the near future.
This addition is the largest since the base was released 3 years ago.
ADRs are shares of foreign companies that trade and reside on the United States (US) market in dollars. This allows investors to avoid business transactions in foreign currencies.
“We’re seeing what loyal consumers are looking for and what they’re not getting,” Vlad Tenev, co-founder and CEO of Robinhood, told CNBC International. “This allows loyal consumers to gain exposure outside the US.”
Robinhood knows that its users expect access to global stocks by watching its own tracking data. Robinhood staff have access to user input stories for program tracking. Some names such as Nintendo, Adidas, Burberry, BMW, and Heineken are the most common.
Robinhood used the same reasoning back in February, when it decided to increase cryptocurrency trading. After repeated user searches for “bitcoin.”
“We always use tactics to listen to loyal customers and work on creating new products that make their lives easier,” said Tenev. Competition in the brokerage industry is heating up as there are several “no-fee” options for investors.
JP Morgan released its own free trading program this week. The way the banking giant is heating up the price war is to lower fees for retail brokers.
Shares of Charles Schwab, TD Ameritrade, and E-Trade, online brokers who used fees plummeted after information about JPMorgan’s new program spread. Tenev explained briefly that other online brokers were asked to follow JPMorgan in eliminating fees.
Robinhood was released about 3 years ago and is popular as a “no-fee” stock trading platform. Most of the users are 18 to 35 years old. In May, Robinhood was successful through its competitor E-Trade Financial and currently has a total of 5 million accounts.
Even though these startups do not use trading fees, they still charge fees through premium services.
