Who to copytrade on eToro: zhenyapotapov

Are you looking for people to copytrade on eToro?   I regularly review traders on the platform who I think might make interesting investments.  Obviously I encourage you to do your own research and always invest based on this.

Evgeniy (zhenyapotapov) is a trader from Russia and describes himself as a “buy and hold” trader.  So if you’re looking to copytrade someone who can deliver more long term results, this is someone you should look into.

Return on Investment

zhenyapotapov has been trading on eToro since 2013.  In 2014 on eToro he had a loss of around 5%.  But since then, he has managed to deliver an impressive return.  So far this year he is up over 20% with only one month of negative returns.

I like copytrade people who earn a return of around 20% because its not so high that its unsustainable but high enough to deliver a good return to risk ratio.

Investment Style

Evgeniy invests mainly in a combination of cryptocurrencies and stocks.  What’s interesting about this trader is that he has an average holding time of 2 months.    This is a bit longer than most of the traders on eToro but for some people this just what they’re looking for – long term stability.    He makes an average of 5 trades per week.  So even though he has a long term outlook, he is making regular trades.  I try and stay away from investors who make less than 1 trade per week – I don’t want my money sitting doing nothing.  So 5 trades per week is excellent news.

Crypto has exploded over the past 12 months.  But it has also taken a dive in the recent months.  Impressively, Evgeniy has managed to maintain a good profit this year, something many crypto traders have struggled with.

He has a risk score of 4, which is a little high, but still considered on the low end.

Conclusion…

It’s good to see that there are more and more investors on eToro who seem to have a long term outlook.  This could be a good trader to add to your portfolio if you’re looking for a buy and hold strategy.
