The video presents the editorial project, the eToro company and its innovative concepts.

This course corresponds to the: “eToro & stock`s guide # 1".

The scope of the editorial project is divided into : 6 guides by type of Market.

These guides provide knowledge through practical exercises that help you get familiarized with the platform.

The idea is to develop new courses that come from concepts established on this one. The users that buy this course will automatically benefit form the new ones, however if you take too long to invest on this course you will need to purchase all courses separately. It will take me about 2 years to fully finish the main content I want to make available through this page. I will update all of my content regularly.

By learning how to use of the platform and how manage stocks will allow you to operate with all available markets and have no problems from the operational stance. Being familiar with the market does not equate to good results on eToro, you need to know how navigate through it. The courses will suggest YouTube channels and sites to broaden your knowledge about the market.

Each financial instrument has its particularities and priorities in a situation analysis. It is important to know how global changes and political decisions influence them. Then, you can start trading in the comfort of your own house, and with a single click of a button.

Note: The concept "CopyFunds" has recently changed to "CopyPortfolios". This shows the dynamics of these platforms. In this case, I need to update the end audio. Any changes like this one will be taken care of a soon as possible.

Past performance is not an indicator of future results (The CNMV has determined that, due to the complexity and the risk, the purchase of these products by retail investors is not appropriate) CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. 66% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs with this provider. You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work, and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money.

General Risk Disclosure | Terms & Conditions

CFDs are leveraged products and are considered to be ‘speculative’ and ‘complex’ products.

Trading in CFDs related to foreign exchange, commodities,indices and other underlying variables, carries a high level of risk and can result in the loss of all of your investment. They are difficult to understand and are appropriate only for experienced investors.

You should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should seek advice from an independent and suitably licensed financial advisor and ensure that you have the risk appetite, relevant experience and knowledge before you decide to trade.Under no circumstances shall eToro have any liability to any person or entity for (a) any loss or damage in whole or part caused by, resulting from, or relating to any transactions related to CFDs or (b) any direct, indirect, special, consequential or incidental damages whatsoever.Cryptocurrencies markets are unregulated services which are not governed by any specific European regulatory framework (including MiFID). Therefore when using our Cryptocurrencies Trading Service you will not benefit from the protections available to clients receiving MiFID regulated investment services, such as access to the Cyprus Investor Compensation Fund (ICF)/the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) and the Financial Ombudsman Service for dispute resolution.

Trading with eToro by following and/or copying or replicating the trades of other traders involves a high level of risks, even when following and/or copying or replicating the top-performing traders. Such risks includes the risk that you may be following/copying the trading decisions of possibly inexperienced/unprofessional traders, or traders whose ultimate purpose or intention, or financial status may differ from yours.

+ General Presentation
11 lectures 01:06:24

Let's begin by discovering the platform by analyzing its menu structure. The blocks in which it is divided. The options of each block. In this video there is a general tour without going into details. Remember to download the .pdf file

Discover Stocks

Taking our first steps,

before an infinite horizon,

gives us the feeling of maximum freedom.

In an ocean of possibilities it is necessary to define a course.

Sooner or later we might feel that the maximum freedom

can become an infinite labyrinth.

Feeling confident in such a broad horizon

requires having a guide and the experience of the years.

Discover such a broad universe by yourself

with so many possibilities and perspectives

will not be as rewarding as sharing it with a friend.

Sharing is the key to this new environment.

To begin, it is necessary to design a strategy

and be constant in that direction.

Then, we must become familiar with our instruments and

choose the right time and date to operate in each market

Take the time to discover and learn before sailing

This is the keys to success, avoid anxiety and dominate fear.

Discover Stocks Activity -1

To begin it is necessary to create a practical exercise.

The exercise aims to "Discover Stocks" grouped into themes.

Out of 14 stock markets and 1679 shares, select 60 shares of 7 markets, grouped into 5 topics of 12 shares.

  • The stocks are from different brands, in general, well known in the daily life from people from all over the world.

  • In each item there are shares of two or more different stock markets in order to diversify the risk.

  • They were ordered from major, left, to minor, right by capitalization volume. This in order to provide a tool for visual identification of capitalization ranking without using numbers.

  • You can download the .PDF file of this activity. Each logo has an active link to Wikipedia so you can know each of these companies. Get to know the fundamentals: their history, which brands they handle, how many countries they operate in, and other information of your interest.

  • The tags allow you to follow the instagram publications that I make of each one of those shares. Follow them if you wish.

  • It is important to remember that the objective of the course is to guide you in the use of the platform, which is not the same as teaching to invest. The virtual account allows you to introduce concepts and give criteria so people who don't have the required knowledge, can enjoy taking their first steps into the world of investments. Always take into account that none of these tips are advice to invest in the real account. If you invest in the real account it will be your own responsibility.

Discover Stocks Activity - 2

It is important to know that there are more than 10 thousand financial instruments in these 14 stock markets.

When you access the eToro platform you have a selection of 1674 instruments. This is a great benefit, since they did the first task for you: filter the best ones. Then I have selected 60 shares (second filter) and I have categorized them into five topics (third filter), ordered by capitalization level (fourth filter). Ordered visually from left to right. This means that you will be investing better as you get a buying opportunity closer to the left. You are making a risk diversification by operating in seven markets.

Discover Stocks Activity - 3

eToro offers the possibility of analyzing each financial instrument with fundamental information, statistics and graphs in each tab. It is possible to do technical analysis without having to leave the platform and use different tools and several indicators at the same time.

Discover Stocks Activity - 4

The following slides are a tool that facilitates the analysis of each group of thematic shares through active links in the .PDF file, which you must download in all the devices from where you can operate. Each company logo will take you to the technical file of that company within eToro. We will also explain how to do this by using the tracking lists in the following video.

Discover Stocks Activity - 5

Watch the video first complete. Then download the .pdf file and do the exercise. It is important that you make the five follow-up lists so that you can really evaluate the possibilities of the tools during the development of the course. Then make your own.
