eToro social trading brokerage review

Forex-Central.net is NOT an affiliate of eToro!

eToro is the commercial brand of Retail FX, a social network of online traders regulated in the EU by CySEC and regulated in the United Kingdom by the FCA. The broker also has an AMF license (Bank of France).

eToro's social trading network presents a new approach to trading that allows one to tap into the wisdom of the crowd to make more intelligent decisions, and also to follow and automatically copy the trades of the network's traders.

The trading platform provides an innovative interface and its features are displayed according to each trader's experience. Its wide range of features includes an easy to use user interface, instruction manuals, research tools and an online community of over 2.5 million traders.

68% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs with this provider. You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work, and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money. This is not investment advice.

The social network

In addition to the chat feature that's built into its trading platform, eToro provides traders with access to the social network, which allows traders to share their thoughts and trading positions in real time. Beginning traders can therefore learn the ropes by analysing and copying the trades that highly profitable traders are making - for free. As for the more experienced traders, they can share their thoughts with other traders in order to improve their strategies and find out about new trading opportunities.
