Were you able to attend last Saturday’s global investing walkthrough session?
If not, there’s another one coming up today Wednesday & Saturday, same time 6 PM.
But first, let me share with you an update from eToro as to the performance of markets in last quarter Q3 and its popular investors.
The end of Q3 was more volatile as the S&P 500 (this is one market index of USA) decreased by 3.9% in September.
Despite this decline, many of eToro’s Popular Investors have managed to be profitable last month, proving that they know how to handle volatility and that a long-term strategy can pay off.
Below are some top Popular Investors, which showed great performance so far this year.
It shows their double-digit portfolio growth year to date, the number of copiers (tiny investors around the world who automatically copy their trades), and the number of their followers who track their updates.
This is one reason why I loved this idea of Copy Trade & Popular Investors (PI).
Small investors like you and I are given the freedom to choose how to grow our money from A LOT of options with a bit less effort from us.
Unlike in local mutual funds in which we only have very few options,
this PI feature allows us to TAKE ADVANTAGE of the excellent trading skills of able people from all around the world.
All we have to do is search them inside the platform and copy them.
The nice thing is, you still have full control.
You can either
(1) still do your own trades, or
(2) You select that one or more Popular Investor you will like most based on their track record.
You may be thinking, what are the odds to make decent returns?
Below are some actual key metrics that show just how well eToro Popular Investors did in Q3, 2020:
- 62% of Popular Investors outperformed the S&P 500 index in Q3, 2020.
- 82% of Popular Investors are profitable this year to date.
- 60% of Popular Investors are up more than 10% YTD.
- 42% of Popular Investors are up more than 20% YTD.
- 29% of Popular Investors are up more than 30% YTD.
And don’t forget that this stellar performance happened while our local stocks were struggling these previous months!
And the good news is – you can certainly take advantage of this exact growth at zero cost.
On social trading platform eToro, you can allocate some funds to copy the performance of these Popular Investors using the CopyTrader™ feature if you are not doing so already.
If you wish to check out their stats and consider copying them, you can explore and discover Popular Investors on eToro.
Imagine your money, instead of sleeping in your banks now, having the opportunity to have the same growth with close to zero effort from you.
Of course, there’s no guarantee here, but the consistency of their track record can really be a good basis on how to make our money work for you. Also bear in mind that copying Popular Investors should be considered a long-term investment strategy, which naturally means taking into account losses along the way.
If you’re afraid of losing money, the risk score data of every PI can also guide you filter those people who are very careful minimizing their drawdowns.
Also, manage your exposure by keeping your copy amount at reasonable levels.
That way you minimize the loss in case the trade doesn’t go as planned.
Lastly, unlike mutual funds we normally know of, which have a minimum holding period, copy-trading allows you to exit/cash-out your investment ANYTIME with no costly fees.
That means you can "sell/redeem" your investment at any time you see decent profits from your copied trades.
And again… you enjoy all these benefits without additional costs!
I know this copy trade idea may still be new to you,
so join us this week to learn more about how this works.
