    What is eToro Copy Trading?

    The Copy Trading feature is a hugely popular tool offered by online broker eToro. In a nutshell, it allows you to ‘copy’ an experienced trader that is using the eToro platform. Initially, you will copy their portfolio like-for-like.

    For example, if the trader has 40% of their portfolio in Apple stocks, as will you. If the trader has 20% in gold and 15% in natural gas, as will you.  Furthermore – and perhaps most importantly, you can also elect to copy the trader on an ongoing basis.

    That is to say, if the trader exits a position, as will you. If the same trader then adds a new asset to their portfolio – again, as will you. In theory, this means that you can actively trade online without needing to lift a finger.

    Instead, your chosen copy trader will determine which assets to buy, and when. They will also determine how much of their portfolio to allocate to each asset, and of course – when to sell. Best of all, eToro allows you to utilize this feature with a minimum investment of just $200 – and no additional fees apply.

    How eToro Copy Trading Works

    The Copy Trading process itself is relatively straight forward. The most difficult part is knowing how to select a trader that is going to make you consistent profits. After all, past performance is never a sure-fire indicator of future results.

    Nevertheless, the end-to-end investment process typically works as below:

    Step 1: Choose a Copy Trader

    Your first port of call will be to choose a trader to copy. Although the eToro platform is home to over 12 million investors, not all users are signed up to the Copy Trader program. With that said, there are still thousands of traders to choose from, meaning that you will need to do some homework.

    Some of the metrics that eToro allows you to view about the trader are:

    • Historial Performance: When you click on the profile of an eToro Copy Trader, you can essentially view each and every position that the investor has placed. As such, you have a clear overview of how the trader has performed since they joined the platform. This can be viewed on a month-by-month basis – which is really useful.
    • Preferred Assets: You can also view the preferred asset class that the trader likes to speculate on. For example, while some traders stick with stocks, others are more focused on forex. Some traders are more of a Jack of All Trades – covering several asset classes.
    • Risk Rating: The underlying technology powering eToro is able to build a risk rating on each and every copy trader. This runs from 1 being the lowest risk, up to 10. This allows you to stick with traders that mirror the level of risk that you feel comfortable taking.
    • Trade Duration: eToro also lets you know the average number of days (or hours) that the trader keeps a position open. While this might not sound like an important metric – it actually is. After all, while some traders take a day trading or swing trading approach, others are more interested in a long-term strategy.
    • Assets Under Management: You can also view the number of eToro users that are currently copying the trader in question. Additionally, this also lets you know how much money the trader has under management. Ultimately, the best copy traders at eToro typically have heaps of followers.

    As you can see from the above, there are many metrics that you need to take into account when choosing a copy trader at eToro.

    Step 2: Allocate Funds

    Once you have selected an eToro copy trader that you like the look of, you will then be asked to allocate some of your account balance. As noted earlier, this needs to be at least $200.

    Additionally, you also need to decide whether you want to copy the trader on an ongoing basis, or only copy the portfolio that they currently have.

    In our view, there isn’t much point opting for the latter. After all, you will not benefit from ongoing buy and sell orders that the trader makes – meaning that you are potentially missing out on profit-making opportunities.

    Once you confirm the investment, eToro will deduct the respective figure from your cash balance. If you’re still confused about how the ‘copying’ part of the process works, let’s look at a  quick example.

    • Let’s suppose that your chosen copy trader has £100,000 worth of assets in their portfolio
    • £25,000 is in IBM stocks (25%) and £75,000 in a bond ETF (75%)
    • You decide to invest £1,000
    • This means that £250 (25%) of your portfolio will consist of IBM stocks and £750 (75%) in a bond ETF.

    As you can see, it doesn’t matter how much capital you have at your disposal – your Copy Trading portfolio will be weighted like-for-like with that of the trader.

    Step 3: Making Money

    When it comes to making money, the eToro Copy Trading feature works no different from a standard do-it-yourself investment strategy. In other words, your portfolio is simply a carbon copy of your chosen trader. As such, any profits that the trader makes – in percentage terms, will be reflected in your portfolio.

    For example:

    • Let’s suppose that you invest $2,000 into a copy trader that focuses exclusively on forex
    • The trader allocates 1% of their portfolio on a GBP/USD buy order – with leverage of 30x
    • In turn, this means that you are risking $20 on the trade, albeit, with 30x leverage applied
    • The trader closes their GBP/USD position – making gains of 0.5%
    • Your portfolio mirrors the trade – meaning that you made 0.5% of $20 – which just $0.10 ($20 stake x 0.5%)
    • However, you also had leverage of 1:30 applied – meaning that you actually made $3

    Although the above figures represent a small return, it is important to remember that forex day traders will often place dozens of positions throughout the day. As such, small returns can very quickly add up.

    Copy Learn 2 Trade at eToro

    So now that you know how Copy Trading works, we now need to discuss what Learn 2 Trade can offer. First and foremost, our team of in-house traders have been active in the currency and commodity trading arena for over 15 years.

    We are well known in the signal service space – with other 1,000+ members taking advantage of our daily trading suggestions. In fact, our team target a win rate of over 76% – which is why we are experiencing a surge in account sign-ups.

    Nevertheless, Learn 2 Trade recently joined the eToro Copy Trading program for one key reason – to allow our members to benefit from passive income. After all, as useful as our forex, commodity, and cryptocurrency signals are – you are still required to act on each suggestion.

    Furthermore – and perhaps most importantly, signals often need to be actioned the very moment they are received. After all, the financial markets can move at an incredibly fast pace. In turn, this means that some of our members miss out on profit-making opportunities.

    Que – the Learn 2 Trade Copy Trading portfolio!

    In a nutshell, you now have the opportunity to mirror the buy and sell positions of our in-house traders without lifting a finger. If our traders buy EUR/USD – as will you. If our traders sell AUD/NZD – again, as will you.

    In terms of our trading strategy, this works much the same as our signal suggestions. For those unaware, this means that we tend to take a risk/reward ratio of 1:3.

    In simple terms, this means that by risking 1% of our capital, we stand to make gains of 3%. Of course, this is achieved by entering stop-loss and take-profit orders on all of our trades. Once again, by copying us at eToro – you don’t need to worry about individual orders – as everything is automated.
