About Coin-op

About Coin-op


Unlike equities and bonds which are affected all day, every day by international politics, finance and economics, crypto trading is very primitive. It is basically herd-behaviour but if you are going to be successful you need to be at the head of the herd when it stampedes and get out as soon as the excitement is all over.


If you had jumped into trading Bitcoin (BTC) in early May 2019 and jumped out again two months later at the end of June you would have made a gain of around 120%. If instead you had invested in BitCoin SV (BSV) or Chainlink (LINK) you would have made around 300% and 600% respectively. In fact if you had invested even amounts of money in all Coin-op cryptos in early May, by the end of June you would have averaged over 70% gains.

In other words you could have made sizeable annual gains just trading once and for just 2 months and you could have chosen to trade almost any Coin-op crypto during that period. **

This is a crucial, if rather bizarre, point. The reason for it is that in any market there are general movements which lift securities up and down together as investment sentiment grows or weakens. These major movements can take place over days, weeks or years and it is vital you are on the right side of the current sentiment. To emphasise the point in the months after June most of the same cryptos fell back by well over 50%. Look at the charts on the Coin-op Front Page to see this effect.

Buy and Sell signals

Coin-op's algorithms examine its crypto data daily to look for two main things: individual buy and sell signals and trends for each crypto as well as for the whole market. Combining the two can give a lot of re-assurance when trading; you do not really want to be buying in a falling market. See more on how these Coin-op signals work here.

Coin-op Crypto Index

So if you consider trading your favourite crypto without looking at the whole market you could easily be wasting your time and money which is why we have produced the Coin-op Crypto Index made up of the major cryptos to help you. Now you can see how the whole market is working on a day to day basis. It is also possible to use Crypto Index signals for trading individual cryptos. See more on the Crypto Index here.

Volatility

So why, above, did Bitcoin (BTC) produce 120% gains whilst Chainlink (LINK) produce 600% gains in the same period? Obviously there can be 'good' or 'bad' news which can affect a security (for instance Chainlink's smart contract API linkage had become very popular). Another reason is size. Chainlink's current price and capitalization are around 0.5% of Bitcoin's; it takes a lot more financial muscle to move Bitcoin's value around. So Coin-op calculates for each crypto a volatility value which represents the amount which a crypto is likely to move on a given signal. See more on Volatility here.

Glossary / FAQs

There are quite a few terms used in Coin-op which might not be known or understood so here is a Glossary / FAQ sheet which covers most of them.

Donation

If you find yourself making gains as a result of Coin-op's algorithms (or almost as importantly, avoiding losing money!) perhaps you would consider giving a percentage as a reward to keep them helping you in future. You can do this by visiting our Donation page here.

Good Luck

** In that two month period between May and June 2019 only Tezos (XTC) made a loss. LEO and Stellar made less than 20%; without them a basket of all the other Coin-op cryptos would have averaged gains of over 90%.
