$500 is now enough to have a diversified stock portfolio on eToro

In order to avoid unnecessary investment risk, you need to have a diversified asset portfolio. Experts say a minimum of 20-30 stocks spread out across multiple industries make up a diversified portfolio.

Challenge: buying just one (1) share from each company might be very costly because each share costs at least $100-$150. Microsoft shares cost upwards of $200 and Amazon shares are priced at over $3000 per share. That means you’d need from $20,000 to $50,000 of initial capital to have a diversified capital.

Solution: eToro allows you to invest in fractions of a share:

  • a minimum of $50 per company if you’re investing on your own
  • a minimum of $2 per company if you’re copy investing with a Popular Investor

The minimum initial capital for copy investing is $500 which means that your copy portfolio may be very well diversified. How is it possible? It’s CFD magic.

All you have to do is:

  1. Sign up with eToro
  2. Deposit $500
  3. Pick a Popular Investor you like and trust
  4. Wait for your profit a few days / weeks / months (depending on current market conditions)

Sounds good? It is.
