Robinhood has gradually been lifting its restrictions on volatile share purchases, though stocks at the heart of recent Reddit-fueled surges like GameStop and AMC remain relatively locked down.

Why Google deleted 100k reviews of Robinhood overnight

Overnight Google removed "at least" 100,000 negative reviews of the stock trading app Robinhood.

Robinhood GameStop stock block prompts AOC and Ted Cruz investigation threat

An almost unprecedented set of circumstances have created a situation in which normally diametrically opposed politicians agree on an action. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just called for a hearing on (and likely an investigation into) Robinhood's decision to block retail investors from purchasing stock "while hedge funds are able to trade the stock as they see fit." AOC continued, "As a member of the Financial Services Committee, I'd support a hearing if necessary."
