Introducing: The Complete Guide to Fintech Trading and Investments [PDF]

The Fintech revolution has been one of the most influential trends to affect the world of finance. The integration of new technologies into traditional trading and investing practices has created many new opportunities, and provided people who previously had little-to-no access to the market with new ways of controlling their financial futures. It is impossible to grasp just how significant this revolution is, but it is changing the world of finance as we know it.

One of our declared missions here at eToro is to promote financial literacy. We believe that by giving people the knowledge they need to understand markets better, we are contributing both to our immense trading community and to the Fintech industry as a whole. Therefore, we’ve put together “The Complete Guide to Fintech Trading and Investments,” (Co-authored by Sandy Fox and eToro’s own Senior Market Analyst Mati Greenspan) which is perhaps the most comprehensive overview of this industry ever written. Because we believe that building a more knowledgeable trading community is a worthy cause, we are offering it to anyone for free.


All trading involves risk. Only risk capital you’re prepared to lose. This is not investment advice. CFD trading.

The Fintech Guide

Containing more than 200 pages of relevant knowledge, this guide is designed to teach traders and investors how to build wealth in the 21st century. The guide goes over the Fintech revolution in general terms, and then takes readers step-by-step through various aspects of fintech.

As soon as it has familiarized readers with basic Fintech terms, the guide proceeds to go over important practices, such as trading and investing, giving helpful tips regarding opening and closing positions, building their portfolios, managing risk, performing analyses, and many other pragmatic tools.

The guide also breaks down the various asset classes, such as stocks, commodities, currencies, ETFs and others, to help traders and investors distinguish between them and understand the strengths and weaknesses of each one. The guide also goes over more recent innovations, such as cryptocurrencies, and new practices, such as social trading. At the end of the guide, we’ve included a glossary of popular terms to give readers control of the language

Trading the eToro way

While the guide is intended for anyone who wants to deepen their knowledge of the financial world, we had our own eToro traders and investors in mind when writing it. Therefore, in order to provide even more value, there are a few chapters which focus on practices unique to eToro, such as copy trading and our innovative CopyFunds product.

From eToro’s very first days, we set out to become a Fintech revolution leader, and we believe we have succeeded in this task. Ten years and 7 million users later, we are proud to be the go-to trading platform for so many traders and investors around the world. We are certain this Fintech Guide will benefit anyone who reads it, and encourage you to download and read it.
