kela-leo is a Chinese Popular Investor who was featured on ‘Editor’s Choice’. He says: “During my trading journey, I found that strict risk management is the premise of long-term trading. Based on this knowledge, by combining strategic models and economic policy trend analysis, we can bring in an ideal profit.” Here is an interview we held with him:

Past performance is not an indication of future results. This is not investment advice.

Tell us a little bit about yourself.
My name is Lingxia Cao, I am 31 years old. I have 2 babies and a wonderful wife. They all support me to trade on eToro.

Did you have previous experience with financial investments before joining eToro?
Yes, in the past I had experience in investing options in Manhattan, America. I started to deal in currency futures from 2007, but at that time China didn’t have currency margin trading yet.

What is your type of trading strategy?
My trading model prefers value investment to judge according to the analysis of economic fundamentals and policy, and thus, I combine some tools like price status to set positions. Middle-long term investments are the main ratio. The risk management of each trade is what I pay attention to.

What is it focused on?
Product, strategy, and risk management are the three units that I use to find suitable objects and set stop loss/profit during the trading. The products I trade in are extensive and include GBP, USD, Gold and some other commodities. Gold is my favorite to disperse risk.

What are the benefits of being a Popular Investor?
For me, if I can share good products with professional investors, finalise resource sharing, and become recognised by other investors, then this is the most valuable asset, and also my power to be a popular investor.

What is your long-term goal?
To summarise in one sentence: to gain as much profit as possible based on the lowest risk. For the long term, I wish to control my risk score below 4, and maintain more than a 20% yearly profit. I personally prefer long-term stable strategy.

Do you have any advice for your copiers/users considering copying you?
I hope everyone can have a stable investment period. I have calculated the data of who follows and who stops following me, and some of them only copy me for a short time, for one or two days. This is a high risk, because the market changes every day, and you cannot see a reasonable return in one or two days. The best investment period is one year, at least three months. I suggest investing more than $500.

What are your hobbies?
In daily life, the thing I like most is reading. Besides that, I will try mountaineering, sailing and other outdoor sports. But I don’t like difficult sports like surfing.

eToro users can now invest in a professional-grade algorithmic strategy from The TIE

October 15, 2019 —  eToro, the leading global investment platform, announces the launch of TheTIE-LongOnly CopyPortfolio, offering users access to a sentiment-based, AIgo-driven investment strategy from The TIE, a cryptocurrency data analytics platform trusted by some of the largest traditional quantitative hedge funds as well as crypto-specific funds.

Guy Hirsch, US Managing Director of eToro, said: “In traditional markets, retail investors have historically lagged behind the ‘smart money’ when it comes to the data and tools available to them. This puts individual investors at a major disadvantage. In the spirit of crypto and decentralized technology, we believe that offering institutional-grade tools to every investor will level the playing field and democratize investing.” 

Cryptocurrency fundamentals are still maturing. They have no revenue, dividends or debt. As a result, social sentiment — people’s positive or negative perceptions — is a significant indicator of crypto asset  price movement. The Tie’s proprietary machine learning and language processing models ingest 850 million tweets per day, quantifying the positive and negative tone of conversations on Twitter. TheTIE-LongOnly CopyPortfolio strategy allocates based on positive sentiment, algorithmically rebalancing once per month.

Joshua Frank, CEO of The TIE, said: “eToro is well-known as a community where some of the smartest crypto traders share insights and strategies. We’re proud to offer investors of…

8 October 2019: eToro, the global multi-asset investment company, has announced that Lira, the open-source programming language developed by eToroX Labs, has evolved to write options contracts on the Ethereum Blockchain for the OTC derivatives market.

Announced at a workshop at Devcon V, Osaka, on 8th of October 2019, Dr Omri Ross, eToro’s chief blockchain scientist demonstrated Lira 2.0’s new features, including writing options contracts. The Lira programming language, recently referred to* as one of the “most imaginative things happening in DeFi today” is one of only two such open source solutions on the market, and is all the more exclusive since it is formally verified.

Responding to the announcement, eToro CEO Yoni Assia commented: “eToro has long held the belief that we will eventually see all tradable financial assets tokenized. Lira, our open source programming language, is a step towards making this a reality, enabling the entire community to write and deploy secure financial contracts on Ethereum. The workshop where this was announced was a central event at Devcon, which is significant in demonstrating how the blockchain community shares our vision for open finance.”

Dr. Ross commented: “I am delighted to see the excitement of the community in response to this project. Developers will now be able to…

The potential rewards that can result from successful crypto trading have led to a whole new type of trader entering the fray. Amateur and hobby traders have always been part of the market, but till recently, they constituted an insignificant minority. Yet a combination of new online trading tools becoming available and Bitcoin hitting the headlines for its meteoric rise in value a couple of years ago led to the world and his wife wanting a slice of the pie.

Fools rush in where angels fear to tread, and inevitably, many got their fingers burnt and withdrew a little wiser, and often a lot poorer. That’s not due to any inherent fault on the part of the markets – we all know they can go down as well as up. It’s simply a case of inexperienced traders making poor decisions.

As with anything in this world, doing a successful job demands the right tools. Here, we take a look at what an amateur trader needs at his or her disposal in order to hit the ground running and avoid those early mistakes that can be so costly. We will also look at one particular provider, eToro, which has recently entered the US market and seeks to provide a one-stop-shop that delivers everything you will need.
