Hi guys,

I’ve been with eToro for approximately 2 years now, and after building up (regular investments), then a period of drawdown (withdrawals, wife took a year off work for maternity), I am rebuilding my portfolio there. I also use HL for ISA purposes, but for more regular and smaller trades, I use eToro due to their fee system which facilitates frequent/smaller trades.

There are forex, commodities, equities and crypto’s and whilst I’ve dabbled in a few of these, I generally stick to equities - seems a much lower risk. I hold commodities physically, though have ‘hedged’ positions using ETFs in the past.

I’m currently bullish on UK equities; I anticipate the pound will strengthen at some point in the future and require a increase in GBP as that’s my daily currency!

My current preference is towards defensive stocks; the idea of quite high dividends from companies which are fundamental to every day life favours my long term strategy. E.g. United Utilities, National Grid. My current UU position is quite high; I’m aware of Labour’s plans, but anticipate they are playing the market so that their friends can build up positions.

I’m not looking to bore everyone here, but if you have any questionson my thoughts on eToro or future investment plans then please do ask. Also, if you use eToro, what do you think?

If you would like to copy me or view my trading information on eToro, then please let me know!

How are they in 2019? Still recommended for someone who just wants to buy some commodities with no hassle of actually holding them?

I like them, good for making frequent trades. Trading silver/gold is obviously easy to do, with small overnight fees, but like many others here, I prefer physical commodities 

I prefer holding stocks on their platform, I have very bad luck with currencies.
