What are the special features of the "new eToro Platform"?

What are the special features of the "new eToro Platform"? In any page of the new eToro platform, you can see two important parts. First is the bar at the top and the side menu towards your left.

The bar at the top offers three important segments:

The side menu offers following segments with their unique features:
The Newsfeed Segment:
     You can see the news feed segment on the top of the list in the side menu to your left. It seems more like some social networking site      of a trading instrument. Here, you can see all the posts of the eToro community on the new eToro platform. It has two ways in itself which you can operate easily using the drop-down menu:
  • The News Feed:
  • You can create a list of your favorite traders and also other traders by using the "$" symbols relating to the financial tools that already exist on your list. You can also find news feeds of other traders trading in CFDs.
  • The Popular Investor:
  • You can see different well-known traders using the "popular investor" mode. The new eToro platform lets you see feeds of well-known traders who are making great deals using the platform. You need not add them to your list of favorites.

    You will find the value of your assets, on the right side at the top, which is equivalent to the balance in your account. From the starting of the month, you can see the profit in the financial terms as well as in the percentage form.

    On the left-hand side, there is a symbol which shows a pie-chart. By selecting the pie-chart tool, you can see the traders who earn high amount of profits as well as traders who lose high amounts of their funds. There is also a Quick Window on all the three segments. You can do some quick searches using the Star symbol.

  • The Portfolio Segment:
  • The Portfolio section offers you the following two systems:
  • The Real Portfolio system:
  • It is similar to the eToro OpenBook[1]. Any member of the eToro community can visit your profile. The visitors can only see your real money trades.
  • The Virtual Portfolio system:
  • You can access all the operations on the eToro platform similar to that in a live account. The capital requirement is $50,000.
    • You can easily alter yourself from one system to the other, unlike the older eToro platform. In real and the virtual systems all the functions work same. Both the systems let the traders communicate in the same way. They direct and command the traders in the same way. You can initiate the new trades by following same steps in any of the two systems.
    • You have to be very alert to the mode you want to access. There are chances that you may connect with other traders on "Real account" instead of your "Virtual account."
    • Hence, on the new eToro platform, there is a risk of safety because two portfolio systems are completely similar. There may be confusion for the traders, for which system is currently on.
    • On the top of the Portfolio segment, you can see the details of funding and production. It shows the list of opening positions. You can search for your deals here. You can also search for duplicate trades by other traders. By selecting the name of the trader, you can get the list of all deals of that particular investor and yet exist in the market.
    • At the bottom of the Portfolio segment, you can find details of the existing layout of the assets which reveal the invested capital, capital accessible for trading, and relating gains or losses.
    • Along with the photograph of the trader, you can see the amount of copy stop loss. It indicates the maximal loss amount which you will have to bear if you replicate the trade.
    • At the top on the right side, you can see a "wheel" symbol. You can use the wheel symbol to alter and control the value.
    • There is a "funnel" symbol on the right at the top. You can process the list and see only the group of activities which you desire to see to avoid confusion among many available traders on the list.
    • On the left side, you can see a "pie-chart" symbol. It visualizes your portfolio in the form of a graph. There are two types of pie-chart available for the new eToro platform users to view their portfolio.

    They are as follows:

    The Portfolio Allocation Chart:
    The allocation chart allocates your funds into three different groups as follows:
    • The "Market" group shows the funds that you invest in opening positions in the CFDs on the eToro platform all by yourself.
    • The "People" group shows the money you invest in copy funds. It is the money which you invest by copying the trades of other traders and investors.
    • The "Balance" group shows the funds which are still available for trade. You can make further investments using the balance of share capital.

    You can easily see the security skirt using the portfolio allocation chart. You can easily calculate your risk and know if you need to invest more or less in future transactions to make the best use of your available capital. You can easily outline and simplify the difference between your trades (Market Group) and amount of duplicating investments from other traders (People Group).

    The Portfolio Exposure Chart:

    The portfolio exposure chart is different from the portfolio allocation chart. It reveals all the information of your capital investments at one place. There are no different groups, unlike the portfolio allocation group.

    This portfolio is under the management of the traders as well. Hence, you need to take care of the disposal of your money to check any disproportions.
