Does anyone else on here have an account with, or have heard of, eToro? It's basically a mix of a trading platform and a Facebook-like social network. You can trade Forex/Indices/Commodities like most trading platforms, but the unique selling point is you can also see what other traders are investing in and how they're performing...and then set up an automatic copy of any trades that a trader you like makes. I dabble in stocks and trading indices, but don't know much about Forex, and as that's what most of the users on eToro trade in, it was a way for me to get exposure to Forex without the risk of me losing money just because of my inexperience. http://www.etoro.com/ If anyone is interested in opening an account, then let me know before you do and I can refer you, you then get a $50 bonus when you deposit $100 in your account (honesty disclaimer - I also get a referral bonus!). There's also a practice account that's invaluable, I still use it today to 'audition' any traders I'm thinking of copying. If their trades do well in my practice account, they might get promoted to my real account!
