While some of us were still recovering from the festivities, the volatility in the Swiss Franc shook the markets heavily. During this time, eToro stayed strong witnessing again how greatly traders benefit from each other’s help within our social investment network, especially during times of high market volatility.
In 2015, we are raising the bar on all levels starting with the higher minimum deposit and our brand new Popular Investor Program. These changes will all raise the life time value of traders and enable us to build an even stronger and smarter social investment network.
Raising the first deposit amount to $200 for traders in Germany proved to be a success. German traders met the new requirements and made higher initial deposits, allowing for better discovery of the advantages of eToro and Copy Trading.
Starting March 1st, 2015, a minimum first deposit amount of $200 will be implemented in all the Spanish and Portuguese speaking markets (further deposits will not be affected). This will be rolled out to more markets gradually. We look forward to making 2015 a year to remember with all our partners.
