Robinhood stock and crypto free trading app to launch in UK

Reports coming from Techcrunch are ensuring that Robinhood, the U.S. stock trading and crypto exchange app, is making plans towards opening up in the United Kingdom.

Trading “without fees” (although subject to a large spread, as free orders are only processed at the end of the day) is the main selling point of the Robinhood app, which already sparked much expectations when its launch on the US was being planned. The large spread in orders add an extra layer of risk when using this type of free trading services for highly volatile markets such as cryptocurrencies.
