Interesting concept but I don't see that 'social' trading will catch on.

You might like http://www.zulutrade.com/

You can post your trades to the site, and your profit or loss is monitored. You can make money if people start to copy your trades.

Euler should get an account on etoro so we can copy the stock trades he makes.
You get 2% of your AUM per year as payment.

You would have been up around 40% last year if I did!

I've been an Etoro user for about 2 years now - I love the platform, much prefer it to IG and several of the other CFD vendors out there.

It's especially good for allowing portfolio diversity into sectors that I don't know a lot about, such as the currency and pharma markets. Most of the "Traders" on there are buy and hold investors, or crypto guys, but if you're willing to look you can often find a lot of people that stick purely to an area of expertise and make decent returns on a yearly basis.

The copy bet site is interesting, however I can't see it working well for sports trading as it would just begin to rapidly distort the market, as the liquidity is so low

I have met almost everyone I have copy money in on that platform, and I even used to work with one of them. I can imagine that there are automated accounts out there but that has not been my experience

And out of interest, how did that compare to your sports trading total? Which gave you the biggest net profit (let’s include tax as well)?

I’m guessing profit on financials are slightly less consistent through the years though?

Actually some follow up questions might also be interesting, if you will Peter:

Which one, sport or financial investing was more work (time effort)?

Which one was the bigger cause of stress (mental effort, let’s say)?
