One Response to “How to Fund your eToro account”

    Maybe I am too old to “get it” but Etoro does not appear like a good value to me. Sure, there is a low minimum to open an account but many conventional brokerage firms also have very low thresholds to open an account these days. Really, charging you $25.00 USD to withdraw your money? That does not sound like a good deal. My biggest question that I have yet to find an answer for: eToro claims “no commissions ” and that they “get paid from the spread.” The underlying question is, how wide are those spreads? Most large Cap US stocks on my platform trade at a one penny wide bid/ask. If the same stock on eToro had a spread, for example of .05 cents, then every small lot traded would actually be exceptionally expensive to the small trader. A large volume of small trades equals a whole lot of money! So who actually sets the bid/ask spread on the eToro platform and how wide are those spreads? My guess, you MUST pay the ask or there will be NO trade. Not exactly commission free as it appears on the surface.
