eToro introduces feature indicating temporarily unavailable assets
Online broker eToro is introducing a new feature that aims to enhance trading experience. The eToro platform now offers the asset temporarily unavailable indication.
Sometimes, despite the market being open and within trading hours, certain instruments may become temporarily unavailable for trading. There are various reasons behind this, including exchange-related factors and eToro’s internal considerations such as market volatility or pricing issues.
Now, traders will be able to see the reason for this as this new feature will provide them with real-time updates on asset availability during trading hours.
After searching for an asset, you’ll see if the market is open or closed under the price of the asset. Simply hover your mouse over the “i” icon and you’ll be able to see why the asset is unavailable while the market is open.
This new feature is currently only available on stocks and ETFs from US exchanges.
