eToro Fees in 2020

Opening an account on eToro is free. The broker also offers free stock trading. On the downside, the fees for forex trading are high, and unlike other brokers, eToro charges fees for withdrawal and an inactivity fee.

Trading Fees explained

Online brokerages generally make money by charging you different fees for various rates. Usually, there are 2 types of fees:

  • Non-trading fees. These fees occur when you do various different operations in your account, i.e. deposting/withdrawing money to/from your account, or not trading for a certain time.
  • Trading fees. You pay when you actually trade, i.e. buying stocks or options. In this category, you have to distinguish between 3 different fees that the broker charges you:
    • Commission (a commission is based on the volume traded or fixed)
    • Spread (the difference between the buy price and the sell price)
    • Financing Rate (which is charged when you hold leveraged positions for longer than a day)

Non-Trading Fees

When you look at the non-trading fees, you can see that eToro charges no account fee or deposit fee at all. But the broker charges an inactivity fee, which amounts 10$ per month after 12 months of inactivity. Although the inactivity fee is really low compared to other brokers, you still want to be strategic about your trades and how often you want to trade, since you don’t want to get charged this fee. If you are a buy and hold investor, this broker may be less ideal for you. But on the upside, simply logging in into your account counts as activity.
