Alternatives to Robinhood in Sweden
You can't access Robinhood in Sweden, so here are 5 low-cost alternatives to trade US stocks.
US stock trading platform Robinhood is known for being the low-cost app of choice among millennial traders and it may well be the most widely recognised online broker today.
The only problem is, Swedish residents don’t have access to Robinhood. So, we tracked down a list of US-stock alternatives that offer low or zero brokerage trading for those in Sweden.
What is Robinhood?
Robinhood is a popular US trading platform that offers zero-commission trading of stocks, options and ETFs. Founded in 2013, Robinhood is well-known for its low fees, range of trading options and appealing minimalist interface.
Users of the app often trade stock options and other assets such as cryptocurrencies using leverage. This is a higher-risk form of trading because both your profits and losses are amplified. For more about the app, you can check out our Robinhood review from Finder US, bearing in mind that you won’t be able to access the platform unless you hold US residency.
With an eToro trading account, you get commission-free US stock trading plus access to forex, cryptocurrencies, ETFs and commodities.
eToro may well be the closest app Sweden has to Robinhood, with low fees and a platform angled at the next generation of traders. Like Robinhood, eToro does not charge commissions for US stocks and allows you to trade stocks, commodities and currencies using leverage.
- Brokerage fee: $0 for US shares
- Inactivity fee: $0

Degiro is one of the fastest-growing trading platforms in Europe, with members sprawling across all 18 countries. Though the platform does not allow top-ups with debit/credit cards, Degiro’s fees are some of the lowest in the market at just USD 0.004 per share.
- Brokerage fee: From €0.50 + USD 0.004 per share for global stocks

Trade over 18,000 stocks from 46 different markets, including Australia, the United States, China and Japan.
Saxo Capital Markets has one of the biggest global stock offerings in Sweden, with users able to trade on up to 36 global exchanges. Similar to Robinhood, you can trade a mix of stocks (including options), ETFs, forex, commodities and cryptocurrency markets.

Interactive Brokers is an online brokerage for low-cost US stocks and ETFs and is one of the few stockbrokers that remain certified after Brexit.
Interactive Brokers LLC has its own Dublin office, offering a low-cost trading app for US-listed stocks. Users can trade thousands of stocks and ETFs listed on the NYSE and NASDAQ on their mobile or desktop, using either a volume-tiered or fixed-rate pricing. IBKR also allows margin trading and provides access to riskier securities like cryptocurrency.
- Brokerage fee: $USD 0.0035 per share for US stocks
- Inactivity fee: $0
- Products: Global shares, ETFs, managed funds
- Access: Desktop or mobile
An IG share trading account offers zero brokerage on international stocks as well as US stocks.
Like Robinhood, IG offers zero brokerage trading for US stocks and ETFs in Sweden; however, it adds to this with an international offering. In addition to US stocks, it offers access to the exchanges in Australia, Germany, and the UK. Users can also trade forex, cryptocurrencies and commodities using IG’s platform.
- Brokerage fee: From £10 for UK shares, $15 for global shares
