How to Read the Robinhood Stock Details

By BlueChip Team

Robinhood's app displays info on each stock that you can use to make informed decisions on potential investments, track your returns, and more. We'll go over the information provided and how to utilize it.

Note: cryptocurrency details vary from the traditional stock details. For crypto details, check out How to Read the Robinhood Cryptocurrency Details.



Stock Graph

Dotted line/Price Movement

When looking at the stock graph with the 1-day range selected, a dotted line will appear across the graph. This line represents the previous day's closing price. 

The current day's price may fluctuate above or below the dotted line. As it does, the graph's color will change to green (above the line) or red (below the line) to help visualize the current price movement.

The current day can start above or below the previous day's close. This is because of changes to the stock price during previous day after-hours or current day pre-market trading.

The price change for the day is calculated by looking at the difference between the previous day's close and the current day's close. After-hours trading does not count.

Changing the timespan

The chart tracks the stock's value over time. You can change the view to display a one day, one week, one month, three months, one year, or five-year range.


The buttons are centered and just below the price graph. They are green or red depending on the price movement.

Regular trading hours for the U.S. stock market, including the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and the Nasdaq Stock Market (Nasdaq), are 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Eastern time on weekdays (except stock market holidays).
