Etoro has been around for a while now, and it has gained traction over the past few years. One of the best features of eToro is its copy trader function.

How Does Etoro Copy Trading Works


Copy trading allows you to copy other eToro investors' trade as long as their account is public. Once you copy an investor on eToro, the portion dedicated to copy that investor will mimic each transaction the investor makes in his portfolio. Although there might be instances that your portfolio may not copy trades due to the trade being below the minimum amount, eToro will copy the rest of the trades that reach the minimum.


How Much is the Minimum Copy Amount


eToro just recently increased the minimum copy amount from $200 to $500 due to increased volume on their platform. The increase in their minimum copy amount will reduce the number of small trades on their platform and ease their network congestion. $500 might seem like a huge amount to some, but when you look closer into how to copy trading will spread this amount, the increase is beneficial to the copy traders. Considering most Popular Investors have more than ten positions open on their portfolio, the increased minimum amount will allow copy traders to sync their portfolio to the popular investor.

Avoid Credit Card Debt at All Cost

The pandemic has brought the world into financial distress. Several are experiencing mounting debts, which have been steadily rising since the quarantine started last year. People have lost their jobs and cannot settle their obligations due to unemployment and the unavailability of funds caused by the lockdown. Outstanding debts before the pandemic have ballooned due to interests and charges from their lenders. 

Credit card debt


Credit card debts are one of the debts that many people are having problems with right now. This type of debt typically charges exorbitant fees compared to secured loans due to the nature of the obligations being risky. I used to believe that credit cards are great financial tools as long as you promptly pay the entire outstanding balance before the due date. Credit cards offer deferred payments, rebates, rewards, low-interest unsecured cash loans, and installment payments.
