Why eToro is the original (and best) for copy trading

Investors and traders are always chasing down the best for their portfolios. The best stocks, the best strategies, the best ideas. This is why copy trading, where investors follow and replicate the most successful investors in real time, is so popular.

When it comes to copy trading, eToro is the only platform that offers a fully integrated solution: CopyTrader. As the original and biggest copy trading platform in the UK, our technology allows investors to follow popular investors in a way that fully supports their investing strategy.

CopyTrader is a product that may include CFDs.

CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. 67% 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 includes tracking portfolios comprised of a variety of financial instruments, such as stocks, crypto, indices, commodities and currencies. Wherever a top investor is making their next play, with eToro CopyTrader you can be there with them in real time as they do it. This not only gives you the opportunity to execute the same strategy and replicate it for your own portfolio, in the collaborative online trading community we have created, investors can see first-hand how more experienced investors build their portfolios. This can be an invaluable educational resource.

Unique copy trading 

Many platforms claim to offer copy trading and many flock to these platforms to open accounts thinking they will soon be gaining the inside track on the best operators in the market.

Unfortunately, in nearly all cases, this is not true.

This is because most platforms exaggerate which copy trading functionalities they can actually provide. In reality, often, they can either only allow copy trading on one particular financial instrument, or fail to provide a fully integrated social platform.

For instance, some popular platforms provide an online community where trading signals can be shared between investors. This sounds nice, but is a far cry from copy trading in its true form.

Copy trading is more complex than simply replicating what a successful investor does. It should instead be a fully implemented part of an investment strategy. For the best results, investors have to be truly engaged with the market’s top operators in real time so they can gain the optimum data to make their own decisions. 

Not all platforms make this possible. Like when choosing a stock to buy, investors should fully research their platform before embarking on copying any investors. This means looking beyond advertised claims and getting to grips with the reality under the bonnet.

There is risk with any investment strategy. Copy trading is no different, which is why investors still need to have a healthy level of scepticism when approaching this.

Award-winning platform

Copy trading can be a great way of introducing new ideas to a portfolio, by following the best investors as they navigate markets themselves. Attempting this strategy on a platform that does not fully support this is a non-starter.

Our award-winning CopyTrader solution is the most popular feature on the eToro platform for a reason. With this, we leverage our community of successful investors so others can learn and their portfolios can benefit.
