Social Trading Tools
As an award winning innovator in the field of social trading, we put a lot of effort into developing a wide range of tools to enable you to harness the collective wisdom of the eToro investment network in many different ways. Aside from the live streaming feed of trading information provided by our social trading platform, the social trading tools that we put at your disposal enable you to filter this feed and apply the information to your investment portfolio.
The CopyTrader ™ is a groundbreaking system that enables you to copy other investors automatically and manage your copy trading activity just as you would manage investments in any other market. All you have to do is find the investor you want to copy, set an allocation amount, decide whether you want to copy the investor’s already open trades, and click Copy. Your account will then automatically copy every trading action made by the copied investor, including opening new trades, managing stops and closing positions. Nevertheless, you retain control of your funds, as you can change the allocation amounts to each trader or close the CopyTrader relationship all together whenever you see fit.
People Discovery (Beta)
The eToro network is composed of over 3 million investors, so how can you find the investors that are right for you? Introducing the People Discovery tool (currently in Beta) – a simple search mechanism that makes it easy to find traders according to your specific needs. Simply choose among the various parameter settings and get a list of all the traders that match your criteria for you to follow or copy. You can even save your search results or share it with the rest of the eToro OpenBook community.
