Why is eToro thought about to be bad?
Absolutely at risk ultimately i needed to cut my losses with this trader and i think i wound up losing over a thousand dollars in the end which i was not happy about however i took a look at that trader further down the line and he continued to lose more cash so cutting my losses at that point i did was better than where i would have been six months further down the line so while previous efficiency is not prosecuted for future results i have actually made some of my greatest profits in copy portfolios for instance i’ve been bought the in the game copy portfolio given that the 3rd of july 2017 and today’s date is the 25th of april 2021 so in simply under 4 years i have actually made an insane 210 earnings likewise in 2015 i invested in the huge tech copy portfolio in january 2020 and now 16 months later on this has actually made a tremendous 47.08 earnings which is in just over a year so if you compare that to a bank where you’ll be fortunate to get one percent in a year right now that’s that’s some insane growth i’m getting here on however like i said past efficiency is not indicative of future outcomes so certainly there are some minor negatives to copy portfolios to start with it is not possible to eliminate a part of the investment it’s likewise not possible to close individual positions within a copy portfolio
Is eToro truly totally free as they state?
so this is my virtual account here so say for example you didn’t like a specific business or individual that the copy portfolio had purchased or state for instance you wanted to close one position to take revenues you would need to close the investment totally so that’s something to keep in mind if you’re the kind of person who creams the top of the earnings off of an investment so then potentially you should invest directly into stocks or traders that you would want to copy instead of in a copy portfolio also while a few of the copy portfolios have an entry point that starts at 1 000 us dollars the entry level on a few of these is rather high all the trader based copy portfolios need at least 5 thousand us dollars and five thousand us dollars could be a lot so your alternative is to possibly take a look at a few of the traders in these coffee portfolios or take a look at the stocks in a copy portfolio and then invest in them manually yourself
undoubtedly if you did this you would not get any rebalancing as you would on a copy portfolio now possibly another unfavorable of copy portfolios and i could not find this out for definite but my understanding is that on market copy portfolios there isn’t any stop losses on private positions if somebody from etora sees this video and wishes to confirm this with me then please feel free to get in contact and after that i’ll put it as the pin remark below now this doesn’t indicate you can’t personally set a stop loss on the copy portfolio yourself however say for instance if you’re copying a market copy portfolio it would not close and react out a position if there was a crash in the market whereas a real individual might respond to the market and close out positions and potentially redeem in at a lower entry point this might be worth thinking about when picking a market copy portfolio so to invest in copy portfolios
