DISCLAIMER: This content does not apply to US users.


As part of our vision to open the global markets for everyone to trade and invest in a simple and transparent way, we are proudly introducing a new service on the platform: investing in stocks. Up until now, clients could invest in stocks via CFDs, however, now clients will have the option to purchase the underlying asset.

As of 1st May 2018, clients can now construct a single portfolio to hold stocks from across global markets alongside cryptocurrencies, ETFs, CopyPortfolio, and many other financial assets.  

Clients will be able to:

  • Buy stocks without paying any ticket or management fees
  • Get competitive and transparent pricing – just 0.09% per side
  • Gain access to 1000+ stocks from European, Asian, and US markets
  • Apply leverage or open a short position to trade stocks via CFDs
  • Receive dividends to your balance whenever issued
  • Purchase stocks in bulk or buy just a fraction of a stock
  • Enjoy instant execution & settlement at a fixed price
  • Copy hundreds of Popular Investors and match their performance in the markets
  • PLUS as an introductory offer, investors in UK stocks will not pay stamp duty

Yoni Assia, eToro founder and CEO, comments:“Now, for the first time, investors can hold stocks, cryptocurrencies, ETFs and thousands of other financial assets in one portfolio.  Over the years, we’ve been gradually expanding our offering by integrating more and more tradable assets, and stocks are an important part of this growth.”

Buy stocks on eToro in just 3 steps

Step 1: Go to any stock’s page and click on the TRADE button. A popup will appear with different parameters that can be changed. Open a BUY (long) position with x1 leverage.

N.B. shorting or applying leverage will result in a CFD trade.

Step 2: Input the dollar amount you wish to invest and set your stop loss and take profit orders. You have the option to remove the stop loss and take profit restrictions if you wish.

Step 3: Once you are satisfied with your settings, click OPEN TRADE. A popup will appear confirming your trade has been opened, and you will be able to see your newly invested stock in your eToro portfolio.


What fees will I pay when buying stocks without leverage?

You will be charged one fee for spreads only. There are no ticket fees, no management fees, no rollover fees. Additionally, as an introductory offer, investors in UK stocks will benefit from eToro absorbing the cost of stamp duty. For more information on pricing, please visit our Market Hours & Fees page.

Are copied trades stocks with underlying assets or CFDs?

Every non-leveraged BUY order will result in the purchase of the underlying asset (the stock) which will be held under the client’s account. This is also true, where applicable, when customers invest in a CopyPortfolio or copy a trader.  If the copied trader buys the stock with the underlying asset, the copiers also buy the stock (unless they reside in one of the excluded countries — see list below).

Is stock trading available in my country?

As of 1st May 2018, all countries will be able to trade stocks EXCEPT for:
New Zealand
Sierra Leone
Cote d’Ivoire
Congo Republic

What is a W-8BEN form and why do I need one?

In order to make trading and owning US stocks possible, you will need to sign the W8BEN form stating that you are not a US citizen nor do you pay taxes to the US government. This request will appear automatically on the platform.
