Intro

After hearing about the various features of eToro, I became intrigued and wanted to explore its potential for my trading endeavors. However, as a resident of Ireland, I was uncertain whether eToro, specifically eToro Europe Ltd., would accept users from my country. This article is a recount of my journey to discover the accessibility of this platform for Irish traders.

My Principal Findings

  • The operating entity that handles any eToro account of registered users in Ireland is eToro Europe Ltd.
  • The verification process is user-friendly and quick, taking less than 10 minutes.
  • The initial deposit for Irish users is $50.
  • Irish users have access to a wide range of investment options including stocks, commodities, indices, currencies, cryptocurrencies, and ETFs.
  • CopyTrader and Smart Portfolios are also accessible on the platform

 

Getting Started

Curious to see what this broker had to offer, I visited its website navigated through the homepage, looking for any signs that might indicate restrictions for Irish users.

I had this idea that I could get some notifications or warnings that my country is not supported. I've seen these kinds of warnings a couple of times in other services that I tried and it saved me a lot of time.

Encouraged by the absence of any such indications, I proceeded to the registration process. Throughout this stage, there were no alerts or notifications suggesting any limitations for users from Ireland.

 

Next: Full Account Verification

The next critical step was verifying my account. Following the instructions sent to my email, I was able to gain access to the eToro platform. A prompt informed me that to utilize the platform fully, I needed to complete a verification process. This process didn't take too long and I was able to complete it in around 5 minutes or so.

 

Final Step: Depositing and Trading

Once verified, I made my first eToro deposit. Do take note that for Irish users, the initial deposit requirement is $50. With my account funded, I had full access to the platform and could explore various investment opportunities.

It was reassuring to see that all the asset classes listed on their website, including stocks, commodities, indices, currencies/forex, cryptocurrencies, and ETFs, were available to me. What's also interesting is that I am also able to use the CopyTrader and Smart Portfolio products on the platform. 

This experience clearly indicates that eToro Ireland users can access all the services and invest in the diverse asset classes that this broker offers.

 

eToro is a multi-asset platform which offers both investing in stocks and cryptoassets, as well as trading CFDs.

Please note that CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. 76% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs with this provider. You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money.

Past performance is not an indication of future results. Trading history presented is less than 5 complete years and may not suffice as basis for investment decision.

Copy Trading does not amount to investment advice. The value of your investments may go up or down. Your capital is at risk.

Cryptoasset investing is highly volatile and unregulated in some EU countries. No consumer protection. Tax on profits may apply. Don't invest unless you're prepared to lose all the money you invest. This is a high-risk investment, and you should not expect to be protected if something goes wrong. Take 2 mins to learn more.
