eToro
eToro is probably best suited for persons with basic trading and/or investment needs, not experienced traders. The latter group will probably benefit from more sophisticated tools, such as advanced charting and analysis. In addition, I believe such traders will demand tighter spreads than those available on the eToro platform

E*TRADE
It is well suited for investment in common stocks, bonds, and other commercial paper. It is well suited for purchasing foreign stocks. It is not presently appropriate for other investment opportunities involving private stocks or limited issues. Extracting funds can be a challenge from time to time. Collecting data on investment opportunities is not always easy to do.

Alternatives Considered
eToro
eToro is definitely geared more toward the investor crowd with more familiar looking charts and cost basis tracking than dedicated crypto wallets or services. I use it alongside others, but definitely like the features here for making strictly investment related decisions and research on general market changes, movements, and activities.
