eToro today announces the launch of the eToro Social Trading app, featuring a suite of feature updates to its award-winning social trading network.

Combining a unique digital blend of social and trading, the new app enables any trader to easily manage and access their portfolio across global markets.

On the new eToro app, traders can join a vibrant community of over five million members, view eToro’s top traders, have the ability to copy the network’s traders and develop one’s own method of trading. Members will enjoy a set of enhanced features, which aim to further improve the trading experience and enable traders to access the global capital markets with even greater ease and transparency.

The new features include:

• Trader Charts: Based on a copy simulation process, every trader will now have a ‘Copy Simulator’ chart offering members a “What if…?” performance analysis of copy trading. The feature simulates the copy process to enable members to have a more concrete idea of what to expect if a trader was copied during a certain time period
• Editor’s Choice: To enable members to better discover the trending traders on the network, featured traders are now part of the People Discovery Area where members can navigate easily between Popular Investors, view their investment activity and read editorial commentary about their trading style
• Mobile mentions trading: Post pages on mobile are now optimised to enable members to trade instantly from the news feed and streamline the number of clicks required to execute a trade
• Compare & Share: Members will now have the ability to harness advanced insight charts, allowing them to compare two or more traders (or assets) side by side on the same graph. The Trader Charts and market performance can be shared with friends and family outside of the eToro network, across Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and email

Commenting on the new features, Yoni Assia, CEO of eToro said: “We have built the world’s leading social trading network, designed to financially empower individual investors through a simple, innovative trading platform and an active social trading community. Armed with these enhanced features and functionalities, members can now trade more effectively and with greater confidence, while benefiting from the active discussions and knowledge-exchange taking place between members.”

Using the app, members can access a suite of portfolio management tools to monitor their investments, invest directly in stocks, indices, commodities, currencies and ETFs. With real-time news updates from publications such as Forbes, CNNMoney, Bloomberg and USAToday, eToro members can also stay informed on top of financial news relevant to their interest areas and investments.
