So I've always invested with Fidelity because that's who I got started with years ago with my 401K and ESPP.

Now Robinhood is giving free trades and options trades.

I just wanted to know if anyone had any general reasons why Robinhood isn't a good idea? To be honest, I don't know why everyone isn't using it. There has to be a reason (if something sounds too good to be true...?)

The one complaint I've read about Robinhood is they don't have many tools to help you invest, but I don't see that as a problem. I can still do all my research in Fidelity and then trade in Robinhood.

I've already funded my account and made one purchase (IPAY), and one option (Wells Fargo Jan 2020).

Does anyone have any thoughts on why Robinhood is or isn't a good tool? To me, it seems like a no-brainer.
