You can access eToro as a US resident and open an account without any charges. If eToro isn't available in your state yet, you can still explore the platform using a virtual portfolio. They'll notify you as soon as they're ready to accept your deposits in your state.

eToro welcomes US residents, but did you know that certain US states and territories aren't yet supported? If you're in the US and curious about your location's status, this updated guide is a must-read.

Please take note: The information below is intended for eToro USA traders only.

Here's some good news: The platform is now available in an increasing number of U.S. states. I delved deeper and discovered a dedicated page where you can find the most recent information on the states where eToro operates.

Understanding the Regulatory Landscape

Based on my extensive research, I've come to realize the regulatory challenges platforms like eToro face. You see, each state has its unique requirements, and eToro has to ensure that they are in compliance with local financial authorities.

 

Anticipating eToro's Future Moves

From having just about 174,000 users in 2008 to over 30 million currently, there's no doubt that this online brokerage is expanding its reach. While they don't disclose specific plans, the buzz in the trading community suggests they'll be able to cover more areas in the future, so if eToro is not yet supported in your local state or territory, fret not because it be available sooner that you think.

 

Tip: Use the Demo Account for the Meantime

If your state isn't supported yet, don't worry! You can still sign up for an eToro demo account on their website. However, you won't be able to deposit funds due to state restrictions. In the meantime, use the demo account or Virtual Portfolio to get familiar with the platform. When eToro becomes available in your state, they'll notify you so you can start live trading with your first deposit.

 

The Bottom Line

If you're are new to trading and you're planning to invest with eToro, I'd recommend checking their availability in your state or locality for a hassle-free trading experience.
