Investing Update 4/10/2016

I sold my Apple stock this past week on my $9.99/trade stock brokerage. After all of this time using Robinhood, it took me a while to become reorientated with the $9.99/trade brokerage. I really value the simplicity that the Robinhood App has.

You'll see in my update below, I'm getting very close to getting Robinhood Instant. I have a feeling I'll be getting it this week. This works out well, because when I transfer my $ from my Apple stock sales, that money will be "instantly" available to trade with.

Robinhood Instant -

4/10/2016 - I am the 1,149th person in line out of 228,142 people.
4/1/2016 - I am the 8,697th person in line out of 219,639 people.

3/20/2016 - I am the 11,747th person in line out of 201,794 people.
