Now that you have an account, you can start leveraging eToro to make you a smarter investor, even if you don’t put money into your account. Once logged in, you are greeted with a vast array of features to help you get started on your investment journey. To start eToro’s dashboard provides live feeds of all the major international markets, including the biggest gainers and losers of the day for both stocks, cryptocurrencies, and other investments.
In the dashboard, you will find a News Feed that is a hub for other eToro users to share topics, discuss recent trades, or post about investing strategies. In the News Feed, eToro also has a trending section so users can explore what investments are popular amongst its users. We love this section because it allows users to post their own analyses, graphs, and strategies and get real feedback from the community. This part of eToro is what makes it a valuable tool and truly a social investing platform.
Further, regardless of your investing level, eToro’s Discover tab gives you the power to explore stocks and cryptocurrencies in an exciting way. eToro conveniently displays which assets are trending for its users as well as breaking down these investments into their classes, such as stocks, cryptos, and ETFs. Here, you can also explore eToro’s CopyTraders. These traders are real people who publish their investment strategies and show their returns. These traders act like investment influencers where you can see live updates on their thoughts, statistics on their trades, their portfolio of current assets, and customized charts.
Other features on eToro include a watchlist and portfolio tabs that give the user ample opportunity to customize their investing experience. Within the watchlist tab, you can make dozens of custom watchlists to track different types of investments. Further, in the portfolio tab, eToro gives you an easy-to-read breakdown of all your investments. While these features are standard in other platforms, eToro adds value by providing live price updates within these views, advanced filtering options, and P&L calculations such as Start Value, Open Time, and Net Cashflows.
You’ll notice that once you start adding to your watchlist and following CopyTraders, you will have a personalized feed under your portfolio. With the social media-like design, eToro truly is the at top of its class at providing an easy-to-understand platform that delivers you investment content in an intelligent and meaningful way.
