    `Tuning’ Social Networks Improves Financial Performance on e

    Research by MIT researchers on eToro trading network reveals increased ROI for guided copy trading
    Researchers at the MIT today revealed the results of research on social trading behaviour within the eToro investment network, that demonstrated higher gains for financial traders that responded to copy trading recommendations. According to MIT Dr. Yaniv Altshuler’s research, providing the name of a specific `guru’ to copy enabled online traders to uplift earnings by 6-10% compared with trades used without social networks and 4% when compared with unguided copying where copied gurus were selected without the benefit of a specific recommendation. This research suggests that “tuning” social trading networks by providing carefully selected copy recommendations can increase gains and boosts average returns per user, while preventing “bubbles” in the market.

    Normally in social trading networks individual traders pick and choose their own traders to copy based on a number of factors including instrument traded, risk levels, gain and percent of positive returns. For this research, 6000 active traders were each provided with the opportunity to use a $20 coupon to copy a specific guru on the eToro network. Matches between targeted traders and gurus were based on an innovative algorithm designed to maximize gains throughout the trading network. Other control groups that showed much smaller trading performance increases were traders who copied gurus with the highest returns, and a group where recommended traders were randomly selected without the benefit of using the algorithm.

    “Social trading is now going through a process of evolution making it more powerful than ever”, said eToro CEO, Jonathan Assia. “We are thrilled to finally have proof from a world renowned research institute like MIT Media Lab that social trading yields higher returns than individual trading. This validates our core value in which we believe that profits are linked to the wisdom of the crowds.”

    eToro Integrates WebTrader™ 2.0 and OpenBook™

    Traders can respond quickly to social trading trends and leverage the wisdom of the crowds to improve profitability

    New York/London, May 16, 2012 – eToro, the world’s largest investment network, announced today that its Web Trader 2.0 is now integrated with its eToro OpenBook. WebTrader is eToro’s award winning real-time online trading platform, which prides itself through its exceptional ease of use catering to the needs of both experienced and novice traders. eToro OpenBook provides a complimentary social trading platform that creates a trading experience by allowing users to see, follow and copy the trades of the top performing traders. Users can now make better informed trading decisions by tapping into the wisdom of the crowds and therefore act upon market sentiment.

    The new eToro WebTrader 2.0 provides the user with a comprehensive view of the trades made by each of the Gurus (top traders) that a specific user is currently copying. In addition, the market dashboard provides a visualization of the market sentiment in each specific traded instrument.

    This product integration is part of eToro’ s commitment to continually raise the bar for online trading performance. An eToro study revealed that following experts and copying their trades can have a positive impact on trading performance. In the first six months since the launch of CopyTrader™ on eToro’s OpenBook, eToro has witnessed an improvement in the win ratio (profitable vs. unprofitable trades) of 8%-12% for copied trades. Currently more than half of the trades on the eToro trading platform are copied trades.

    Additional features designed to enhance trading performance include more detailed views of instruments, automatic notifications when instruments reach a set market price, chart views for daily, weekly and monthly price changes, and one-click trading with pre-set parameters.

    “Web Trader 2.0 is just another example of how eToro delivers on the promise to revolutionize the way people trade,” said eToro CEO, Johnathan Assia. “We are proudly leading the social trading revolution and are empowering our users to connect to expert traders to gain knowledge, create responsible trading strategies and to become profitable traders and investors.”
