Published : 16 May 2019

Binance Coin (BNB) is an attractive investment and eToro is a highly recommended, regulated brokerage. In this article, we will show you a step-by-step guide on how to buy BNB on eToro.

Step 1. Find Binance Coin (BNB) on eToro
Use the search function on the main page. You can either go straight to “Trade” to open an order box, or you can read through the information that eToro provides: Feed, Stats, and Chart.

“Feed” gives you the latest posts that mention BNB. “Stats” provide you with a graph and information about the asset. “Chart” allows you to see on a graph how the price of BNB has changed
“Chart” shows BNB’s price on a graph. You can click on the arrows in the top right corner to make the graph bigger.
At the top of the enlarged graph you can see the “S” button for sell, and a “B” button to buy.

Step 2A. Open an order box and choose the amount 
You can open an order box by clicking “Trade” on the BNB’s page, or by clicking “B” (for buy) on an enlarged graph.

Choose the amount in the “Amount” box. The minimum amount you can trade on eToro is 25 USD.

Step 2B. Choose Stop Loss and Take Profit thresholds

eToro sets a maximum Stop Loss amount based on the current price. In this example, with BNB worth 19.66 USD, the Stop Loss can’t be higher than 14.74 USD
You have an option of choosing a Trailing Stop Loss.

Trailing Stop Loss is a useful feature that adjusts the price at which you want to close the trade according to the current value of the asset. You choose by how much the stock/asset can fall in price before you want to close the trade. It is designed to automatically limit losses.

Step 2C. Choose your leverage
eToro offers various degrees of leverage, depending on the asset. Cryptocurrencies can be leveraged x1 (no leverage) or x2 (you double your exposure).

Notice the difference between trading with leverage x1 (real cryptocurrency trade), and leverage x2 (CFD trade).

As specified by eToro: “For clients residing in countries operating under CySec or FCA regulations, all non-leveraged long (BUY) crypto positions are opened with underlying assets (“real crypto”). Leveraged and short positions are opened as a CFD. For clients residing in countries operating under ASIC regulations, all positions are opened as CFDs.”

Remember to take a look at the overnight fees when you’re trading with leverage. You can see them under the “Open Trade” button.

After you have made your decisions regarding (Trailing) Stop Loss, Take Profit, and the leverage, you can finish by clicking on the “Open Trade” button at the bottom of the order box.

Step 3. Monitoring

After you have made the trade, you can see it under the Portfolio tab on the left-hand side.
