Investing Update 3/4/2016

My stocks are up and this is a good thing and a bad thing. Once I transfer some money into my account from my tax refund, I will want stock prices to be down. Right now, I don't mind seeing my portfolio up after seeing it go down for a good month-and-a-half.

Robinhood Instanthttp://blog.robinhood.com/news/2016/2/22/introducing-robinhood-instant

At the time of writing this, I am the 7,616th person in line out of 159,647 people.
Last week I was in the top 6,000 in line out of 136,245 people.

I've been reading the Robinhood subreddit, and there are a few people upset at the time it is taking to get  Robinhood Instant. I'm personally not too worried about it. I want Robinhood to roll things out the right way, and to minimize as many glitches/problems that they can.
