Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

So guys, etoro turned to be not so profitable as we all have seen.

Sorry for resurrecting an old thread but I'd like to see this discussion revisited.

Harvard Business School ( published a relevant paper: Beyond the Echo Chamber, November 2013. Researchers found that eToro traders who used the social network performed better than eToro traders who did not. However, traders who relied entirely on the social network performed worse. For those who have tried eToro - which kind of trader were you?

More recent random columns in daily papers have confirmed that Tweets can shake the financial markets. I've been stopped out in currency contracts by the occasional and unannounced Tweet by Greek politicians. Its incredibly frustrating to see a massive retracement (and stop) followed by a squark declaring "Greek minister of A just said B..." because anyone with any sense would know that an unplanned tweet cannot announce a change in fundamentals, but somehow traders are reacting with painful momentary consequences (for my algos and me).

Social networks create market tremors that threaten intra-day traders. I have learned to respect social networks and I'm now paper trading with eToro - is anyone with me on this?
