Following the release of real-time stocks last month, you can now leverage your stock CFD positions.
Starting from today, you can leverage any stock and Bitcoin trade, up to x5. You can choose between no leverage (x1), x2 and x5 on both long and short positions of all sizes.
You can easily set the amount of leverage for each position in the trade settings dialog box in the eToro WebTrader:
Please keep in mind that when it comes to rollover fees and dividends, these fees will be calculated based on the number of units you bought or sold, not on your investment amount.
When choosing your leverage, keep in mind that even the smallest leverage can greatly increase your level of risk. You can keep tabs on your overall risk strategy by regularly checking your risk score in your user stats page.Note: Past performance is not an indication of future results. This post is not investment advice. CFD trading bears risk to your capital.
