Reversing Robinhood: Free & Accessible Automated Stock Trading

Robinhood provides a fantastic service of zero commission stock trading through the Robinhood iOS App. In today’s stock trading market, however, automated trading accounts for over 75% of all transactions.[1] Automated trading also has a high barrier for entry since transaction fees quickly add up when trades are made frequently.

Working together with Ash Bhat and Josh Singer at TreeHacks, we’re excited to publish a light weight Python Framework that makes automated trading with Robinhood really simple. You can make an automated trade with just 3 lines of Python!
