In the month since Cointelegraph Markets Pro launched, bringing professional crypto market intelligence to every investor, the platform has helped hundreds of early subscribers to better understand the opportunities and threats inherent in the world of crypto investing and trading.
In this brief round-up, we wanted to draw attention to some of the highlights since the platform went live, including a critical look at a variety of back-tested strategies that the Markets Pro team has been tracking.
Cointelegraph Markets Pro consists of two unique research features, in addition to a wide variety of market performance metrics and access to a vibrant community of crypto enthusiasts on Discord.
The VORTECS™ Score is derived from an algorithm that examines multiple different variables (including sentiment, tweet volume, price volatility and trading volume) and compares those with historically similar marketscapes. The algorithm is capable of parsing through millions of historical data points each day, comparing what’s going on right now with prior conditions for the 140-plus assets currently tracked.
A high VORTECS™ Score suggests that current market conditions — across all of those variables — are similar to conditions in the past where the asset has seen appreciation over the next several days. And the higher the score, the more consistent the behavior of the asset’s price in the past.
History doesn’t repeat… but apparently, it often rhymes. The VORTECS™ Score was created to provide every crypto market participant with the kind of quantitative analysis that has previously only been available to major institutional investors.
NewsQuakes™ are alerts on events that have historically had a significant impact on an asset’s price over the following 24 hours. Our research has found that exchange listings, staking announcements and partnership announcements have had the most consistently positive impact.
NewsQuakes™ are built on top of The TIE’s proprietary SigDev technology — the fastest, most comprehensive feed for tracking real-time market-moving news in the cryptocurrency space. SigDev is used by major hedge funds, over-the-counter desks, market makers and other institutional market participants to gain an edge. NewsQuakes™ are delivered both in-browser and via Discord alerts direct to mobile devices.
In addition to institutions, news outlets like Cointelegraph (and our largest media competitor) use The TIE’s SigDev platform to identify critical breaking news stories from primary sources.
Among the most notable NewsQuakes™ are new exchange listings. For example, the average Coinbase listing in 2020 (from the time it was announced to the day the asset was available for trading) generated a 50.4% return.
Some notable NewsQuakes™ over the past month include this alert on Ocean Protocol after the announcement that OCEAN would be listed on Kraken. The first red circle illustrates when the alert was sent…
