Just buy a seat on the NYSE and you can buy and sell all day long.

Sure.
Most people who get rich in the stock market use a free platform like Robinhood.
There's absolutely no downside to it.

Really? Most people who get rich in stock market use a free platform? Even though RobinHood has only been around for less than 2 years?

You need a broker to trade on any exchange, unless you own a seat on the exchange. RobinHood is a broker.

Oh right.

I guess I was thinking more financial advisor. And brokers that are actual people that recommend stocks.

These people don't know fucking shit and care fuck all about making their clients money.

yeah just send a letter to the company you want to invest in telling them you want to buy X number of shares and you dont have a broker so you want to do a direct deal. include a check for the price of the number of shares you want and just wait for them to send you the shares

search for "direct stock purchase plan" - a lot of companies have them.

Merril Edge and ScottTrade have individually directed accounts. Look into them, but be careful because their comission per trade is rediculous

RobinHood is a broker.
I thought there were big differences between them and a broker.

This thread is already cancer.
No, typically you cannot buy stock without a broker.
No, using brokers isn't for chumps.
what is shorting stock
Brokers have their place and if their commission is enough to bother you, you don't have enough money to fuck around with stocks.
You could buy stock specifically from a company, but it makes building a portfolio more cumbersome.

No. The only difference is "no commission" and they're incredibly limited when it comes to where you can trade.

If you live in the US then Robinhood. If anywhere else then you have to use a "normal" broker. You can't not use a broker unless you either buy directly from the company (the difficulty and clunkiness of this is part of the reason why the entire stockbroking industry exists) or if you own a seat on the exchange.

@kizzmybutt
people who have enough capital to actually make worthwhile, highly profitable trades (i.e. not the $5 "investment" you just made on some company being shilled in the general) worry about a small commission
such a low commission isn't worth being able to trade on more than just US exchanges

So I can use leverage, margin, after hours, etc with them?
I thought the difference was that a brokerage actually had these options.
