Robinhood fined USD 1.25 million

  1. Robinhood fined $1.25MM for allowing four broker dealers to frontrun orderflow. The CEO of one of Robinhood's brokers just bought a quarter billion dollar penthouse in NYC.

    Robinhood has now surpassed 10 million accounts.

    Makes zero sense.

    I thought Robinhood was a broker? What is difference between broker, and broker-dealer?

    It's like, they did that consciously, and all there is 1,25 Mil ?

    It's more a warning , than an actual fine.

    The fine should be of a size, that would cripple them.

    10 - 30 - 50 mils.

    Next time would think twice.

    I've always thought the latest "free trade" craze was about selling the customers' order flow to the middle man (eg. broker dealer "front running" your order). So what is considered to be wrong with frontrunning the orderflow?
