  • Trader copying.
  • As a user of eToro you get access to the "Research" page for each stock. There you can find useful information like:
    Analyst Consensus & Price Target
    Hedge Fund Activity in the last quarter (buys/sells)
    Insider Transactions in the last quarter with names, dates and quantities of buys or sells.
  • While the user interface is simple and looks easy, you might have difficulties due to the way information is arragned in different screens.
    The columns in the various lists are not the ones you would need. E.g. at the pending orders you do not see the total amount of the order (price X quantity).
  • Pay attention to the buy/sell spread.
  • Withdrawals can be slow.
  • You can transfer cryptocurrency from the eToro trading platform only to your eToro Money crypto wallet, which is a mobile app available on both iOS and Android devices. Any crypto you transfer from the eToro platform to your wallet cannot be transferred back to the eToro platform. It can take up to five business days for eToro to process the transfer request. Etoro may ask you for further documents in some cases. From the moment that the request is processed, it can also take additional time for the coins to appear in the wallet. Furthermore, there may be further delays in the execution of transfer requests. Requests are not processed on weekends and/or national holidays. Once your crypto is transferred to your eToro Money crypto wallet, you can convert it to another crypto or send it elsewhere.
  • To stake ETH, you need to hold ETH in your eToro Money crypto wallet. Transfer your ETH from your eToro investment account to your eToro Money crypto ETH wallet on your mobile, and follow the steps to stake the required amount of ETH.
