Free stock from WeBull
« on: January 09, 2019, 10:26:40 AM »
Another trading startup, another free stock for signing up
Offer expires January 15th.

I have no interest in trading stocks, maybe you do. I'll take the free stock to give their app a spin.

Similar to the free stock from Robinhood (see earlier forum discussion).

Thanks, I decided to give it a shot with your referral link.

Here's mine: https://act.webull.com/i/LDFwGbjDX3ni

It looks similar to RobinHood. You get a free share of stock for signing up (as does the person who's referral link you used). Odds are it will be something trading around $5.00
$1,000 range, odds are 1:1,000
$150 - $250 range, odds are 1:333
$50 - $100 range, odds are 1:200
$10 - $20 range, odds are 1:24
$4 - $6 range, odds are 1:1

The bonus doesn't require you to deposit any cash or link a bank account to receive it. Just signing up is sufficient. They require the typical information needed to open any brokerage account: name, address, social security number, investor profile, etc.

Compared to RobinHood the app itself certainly provides more information. RobinHood is pretty barebones when it comes to providing market information (i.e. the graphs aren't even labeled on the y-axis for what stocks are trading at). It looks like this app incorporates some additional technical analysis tools as well as a lot more financial information, analyst ratings, etc. It does not have options trading or cryptocurrencies as RobinHood does, but from a stock perspective looks superior in terms of interface and market research. It does include the option of a margin account for free with short selling allowed. With RobinHood that requires you to pay monthly for the premium RobinHood Gold.


FYI although the trades are commission free they still charge something like a penny to cover the transaction costs. They do sell order flow to high frequencies traders which seems to be a substantial income stream for RobinHood as well. Just stick to using limit orders and you should be ok. I doubt many people will be transacting high-dollar trades through this platform, and either way losing a penny here or there is a lot better than a $6-10 commission elsewhere.

Sweet, I received SBUX (Starbucks) currently trading at $62.45. Looks like I'm in the 1 in 200 category.

Sweet. Better luck than me. I got GNW (~$5), twice. I won't look a gift horse in the mouth either way :)

This is good until Jan 16th, so five more days. Similar deadline for another trading startup offering $25 free in BTC, that also expires in a few days, if you are interested.

LOL. I got the same, two shares actually because my referral got that too.
