The biggest exchange market in the world, global currency trade has a daily trade volume of more than $5 trillion. The foreign currency exchange market is extremely dynamic and volatile, which is why it is so popular among traders. Many transactions are done in high volume and some are opened and closed within minutes or even seconds.

Some 95% of all of the world’s currencies are digital. Currency traders look to profit from the smallest movements, therefore, they often use significant leverage when trading. While leveraging is a good way to significantly multiply earnings from a successful transaction, it is a double-edged sword, since losses are also leveraged. Currency prices could be affected by various financial reports and calendar events. For example, the USD is often volatile around the time of the US Non-Farm Payroll report which is released monthly.

While the bulk of the currency market consists of different countries’ currencies, newer forms of payments, such as cryptocurrency Bitcoin are also gradually becoming more dominant in the market. These currencies are less affected by events relating to a specific country, so some traders consider them to be a new form of safe-haven assets.

Since the currency market is so volatile, many currency traders add several currency pairs to their portfolio, either of the same currency against several other (such as USD/EUR, USD/JPY, etc.) or different pairs - as means of spreading out their risk.

The exchange of commodities is the most ancient form of trade known to man. Therefore, while we’re in the digital age, commodities still have a physical representation in the real world. The commodities market includes such raw materials as oil, gold, and silver, which are available on eToro via CFD trading.

Since commodities are real-world assets, they are often affected by real-world events. For example, an increase in oil stockpiles could drive oil prices down, while a sudden shortage could send prices in the other direction. Those who wish to trade and invest in oil need to be aware of these opportunities.

Alternatively, some commodities are commonly used as a hedging tool. Gold is known as a safe-haven asset, since it is not as volatile as currencies. Therefore, it is often in high demand during times of uncertainty in the currency market. Other precious metals are also used for similar purposes, and it is not unlikely to see an uptick in silver, copper, platinum, and palladium prices when the currency market is volatile.

To add stability to their commodities portfolio, some traders opt to invest in various commodities, rather than choose just one.

Every major stock exchange has indices, which reflect a certain segment of the market. Each index consists of various stocks from a specific category, and can often reflect a specific market’s health. For example, the NASDAQ index on Wall Street consists of leading technology companies, including Facebook, Apple, and Google. While you cannot actually buy a piece of an index, investing and trading indices on eToro is made available via CFDs.

Each index can be affected by its individual components, or general market trends. If a major company such as Apple sees a significant increase in its share price, this could drive the entire NASDAQ index up. Alternatively, if the tech market is in turmoil due to a cross-industry event such as the sudden lack of a key raw material, or new legislation, this could drive the index down.

Since each index consists of a variety of assets, it is considered a stabler investment opportunity. Some indices have a positive correlation with their corresponding local currency, while others have a negative correlation. The Japanese Nikkei is a good example: Since Japan’s economy relies heavily on exports, when its currency the Yen is down - it benefits Japanese companies, and could drive the index up.

Since indices often relate to each other (especially those who are traded on the same stock exchange such as the Dow Jones and S&P 500), investing in several indices from different markets could add diversity and stability to a portfolio.

When a company grows large enough, it often holds a public offering, enabling the general public to own a piece of the company, cast their vote, and receive dividends. This is done as a means of generating revenue, and enabling early investors to liquidate some of their holdings. For example, when Facebook went public in 2012, its founder Mark Zuckerberg sold 30.3 million of his shares for $1.1 billion.

Stock prices are influenced by a company’s market cap, meaning that as the company grows in value, so does its stock price. There are many different factors that could influence stock price, including: Product launches, earnings reports (released quarterly), news events having to do with the company or one of its competitors - and many others.

On eToro, stocks are traded as CFDs, meaning the client doesn’t own the underlying assets, but rather, engages in a contract with eToro to settle the difference between the opening and closing price of a position. This enables faster processing of transactions, fractional ownership, placing “sell” (short) orders - and other benefits.

A popular trend in stock trading is thematic investment, which means investing in several stocks from the same category, such as tech. For example, if a trader believes in the tech industry as a whole, they would open positions for companies such as Google, Facebook and Apple.

An ETF (Exchange-Traded Fund) is a financial instrument that groups together various assets following a certain strategy, created by a financial institution. The aim of an ETF is to reduce risk and increase profit by bundling various financial assets from different categories into one tradable fund. Unlike indices, ETFs do not need to follow a specific market segment, and often include assets from different classes.

Each ETFs composition is determined by a group of experts called Authorized Participants, who determine which assets to include. An ETF is created either as a general low-risk financial instrument, or tailored to a specific company’s needs, such as hedging.

An ETF is traded like a stock, and has a share price. While the fund itself owns stocks in various companies, and other assets, the individual owners of the fund’s shares do not have direct ownership of any of the assets. On eToro, ETFs are available via CFD trading. ALT: On eToro, ETFs are offered as real assets, which are registered in your name in an account held by a custodian. Whenever you open a non-leveraged “buy” position for an ETF, you will automatically be buying the actual asset.

ETFs are designed to be relatively low-risk, therefore, investing in several ETFs could add bulk and stability to your portfolio.
