Is eToro free?

You can join eToro for free and any registered user receives a $100,000 demo account for free.

However, like all online platforms, eToro charges various spreads and fees for some trades and withdrawals, as mentioned on this page.

Is there a minimum fee per trade?

No. Unlike other brokers, eToro does not charge a minimum trade or ticket fee on any of its asset types.
The above-mentioned spreads or fees apply to any position, no matter how big or small.

How does the crypto fee work?

In your portfolio, the displayed P&L includes the 1% buy fee that you just paid and the 1% sell fee you will pay when you close the position.
Note: When you close the position, the sell fee is adjusted to reflect the market price of the cryptoasset at that time.

What is a bid/ask rate for CFDs?

Bid and ask rates are equivalent to BUY/SELL prices on eToro. When a position is long (BUY), the ASK rate is applied. When a position is short (SELL), the bid rate is applied.

What are overnight fees for CFDs?

CFD positions that stay open overnight may incur a small fee, also known as a rollover fee, relative to the value of the position. It is essentially an interest payment to cover the cost of the leverage that you use overnight. Learn more here.

What are weekend fees for CFDs?

Weekend fees are overnight fees that are charged for keeping positions open over the weekend, and are triple (x3) the overnight fee.

When do I pay overnight/weekend fees?

Overnight fees are charged every night between Monday and Friday at 22:00 UK time for open CFD positions. 

Weekend fees (x3) are charged either on Wednesday or Friday, depending on the asset: Wednesdays for most commodities and currencies and Fridays for most stocks, ETFs and indices. Weekend fees for oil and natural gas are charged on Fridays

Overnight fees for cryptocurrencies are charged daily.

Can daily overnight/weekend fees, on CFDs, change?

Overnight fees change from time to time based on global market conditions. When this happens, we will implement the changes. Please be aware that fee changes always apply to open positions. We encourage you to keep up to date with the current overnight fees/refunds by checking this page. Please note that fees may change without advance notice.

How are overnight fees calculated for different base currencies?

Interest rates vary between currencies. We apply a different benchmark rate depending on the currency of the CFD your position is held in. Learn more here.

Where can I see the overnight fees on CFDs that I have to pay?

Overnight fees appear at the bottom of the trade window when opening a new trade.

Where can I see the fees that I paid?

In your portfolio page, on the history tab, you can see the fees that were paid for each trade as well as aggregated fees for different periods.

In regards to CFDs, when do I pay the spread?

As soon as you open a new trade, you will see a “loss” in the position  — this is due to the spread. However, the final calculation of the spread is made when you close the position and it is adjusted at that moment, according to the closing price.

How are fees, on CFDs, calculated?

Spread:

Spread * Price in USD * Number of units

Overnight fees (per night):

Fee * amount of units

What is leverage for CFDs?

Leverage is a temporary loan given to the trader by the broker, enabling the trader to open a trade of a larger size with a smaller amount of invested capital. Leverage is presented in the form of a multiplier that shows how much more than the invested amount a position is worth.

For example: If you trade with no leverage at all and invest $1,000, for every 1% move in the market, you can gain or lose $10, which equals 1% of $1,000. However, if you were to invest the same $1,000 and trade using x10 leverage, the dollar value of your position would be equal to $10,000.

What is a “bid/ask market spread”?

The market spread arises from the difference for which a product can be bought and sold (bid and ask). This difference does not arise from eToro and is not incurred as a cost when you buy or sell a real stock on eToro.

What other fees apply?

When depositing and withdrawing in non-USD currencies, a conversion fee will be incurred. Diamond members are automatically exempt from FX conversion fees. Platinum and Platinum+ members receive a 50% discount. There is also a low fixed $5 fee for withdrawals and a $10 monthly inactivity fee after 12 months with no login activity.

Although not a fee that is levied by eToro, each transaction is subject to a market spread upon opening and closing. This is determined by the market and is a characteristic that is consistent across all banks and brokers.

What is Stamp Duty and who needs to pay it?

We will be passing a Stamp Duty Reserve Tax on to clients who open new positions in UK-listed stocks. Stamp Duty is a regulatory transaction tax levied by the UK government on the electronic purchase of all UK-listed stocks. It is currently set at 0.5% of the value of the stock purchase (SDRT is also normally charged at 0.5% but is rounded up to the nearest 1p). This is a mandatory regulatory transaction tax that applies to all clients trading UK-listed stocks, regardless of their country of residence.
