I am not familiar with Etoro.com and I'm not sure how social investing is different from regular investing. If you are in Israel, you may want to check out Interactive Brokers as a popular brokerage for out-of-America investors to invest in the US markets.

As for your 6% gain, I don't know in what equities you are invested, but I would caution that a 6% gain in 2 weeks, while excellent, is not always going to be the case. Markets can go down as well as up.

Lastly, I will caution against using credit to invest. If you will be paying off your credit card bill each month and are using it to get points or rewards, then that's one thing, but if you are going to finance part or all of your investing by carrying financed debt, even with a promotional offer, that is strongly discouraged.

Who is reminded that the cost of borrowing has to be factored into the total returns on such investments...
