2017 Guide to Profitable eToro Trading

etoro 20172016 was a crazy year with all the odd world events happening.  But through all that turmoil I still managed to turn quite a decent profit on the copy trading platform eToro.   As it stands I've made around a 22% return on the year.  That's pretty incredible and has been the most profitable of all my investments.  My “high interest” savings account had a measly 2% return 🙁
