    I'm also looking to get into eToro, but is it really so scammy?
    In fact i'm looking for something similar to eToro (small fees, complete liberty, etc.) and most of all, available for non US resident, especially in EU. Is there such an alternative to eToro?

    eToro is what they call market maker. Basically, market makers are not traditional brokers and they make their own prices. Also, they actively hunt for stop losses (SL). I would avoid them.

    I lost money on the (fast). Don't put your money there. :)
    All sorts of bullshit from their side. If you get low on funds, you will have to invest more money in order to keep using your actual balance. Nobody will trade you to success.

    If you have some significant money, you could invest it in some blue chip stocks like Apple, Google, etc... Or you could always buy a part in some investment fund.

    Best way to make money on forex is by finding suckers and grabbing affiliate commisions when they sign up thru your link.
    The odds on forex trading are so aganist you (big players, like banks, have enough funds to pretty much move markets, they have huge resarch/analysis depts, economy of scale gives them lower transaction fees than you can ever dream of, and finally, often access to insider information), that you might as well go to casino and put everything you have on red/black...

    if you REALLY want to trade, sign up to babypips learn to 1) learn to read the charts, 2) find a broker e.g FxPro 3) create a demo account practice..practice a bit more 3.5) save up money $500-$1000 for a micro account/ $5000+ for a normal account 4) start trading the markets with real money

    Ehhh. Don't try it if you know nothing about it. There's better markets out there. If you're gonna invest, invest in building a website or something.

    You should set up a free account before and see how it works for you, so you know the basics at least
