What Is Social Trading?

Social trading is the newest, most exciting and most rewarding way for you to get access to the financial markets. By linking traders from all over the world into one big network, social trading empowers traders to use each other’s skills to trade smarter together, and that collective wisdom can take your trading to a level you never thought possible before.

As the world’s largest online financial trading community, nobody can offer your trading more of a social boost than eToro. And since we’re convinced that social trading is the way to the future of financial investment, we are constantly developing new tools to harness the unlimited possibilities of trading as a community. With such ground breaking features as CopyTrader, InvestorFinder, and much more to come, we are making it easier than ever for you to monetize not just your own potential, but that of your fellow traders!

So how does social trading work?

eToro’s social investment network works on several levels, enabling you to utilize social trading as it suits you. Whatever your financial investment goals or style, social trading is sure to enrich your trading experience.

See

The most basic function of the social investment network is to bring you live feeds of trading activity. That means that you’re exposed to what you’re fellow traders are doing in the financial market at any given time. How does that benefit you? Information is power, and staying informed about what other traders are doing gives you valuable insight into market trends, innovative strategies and trading ideas.

Follow

Naturally, you would probably be more interested in looking at certain traders’ market activity more than others’. You can do so by choosing to “Follow” the traders that you find more interesting. You can also get more information on each trader and even get in touch with them in person through their personal profiles. If you’re not sure which traders you want to follow, use the rankings or the “Investor Finder” to search the network according to your preferences.

Copy

The most direct way to benefit from social trading is to copy. If you spot a particularly promising trade in the live trading feeds or in a trader’s personal profile you can quickly open the same trade by clicking on “Copy”. However, if you spot a trader who’s consistently profitable it’s much easier to use the “CopyTrader” feature to start copying their trades automatically. In fact you can even dedicate your entire account to recruiting traders to trade for you through the CopyTrader, building what we call a “people-based” portfolio!
