NPX Platform — Trading Signals, Part. 2

How to read and use the signals

D. How to read the signals

Long, short, neutral

  • Long: an increase in price is expected. It’s a buy signal.
  • Short: a fall in price is expected. It’s a sell signal.
  • Neutral means that no trend could be determined regarding the underlying. If a long or a short position was already open, this can be considered a sell signal. If no position was open, wait before opening a new one.
  • Sell ETH for USD / USD stablecoin when the signal turns to neutral if we had a long or short position previously opened; wait to open a new position if there were not.
  • Short sell ETH if the signal turns to short. Short selling means to borrow ETH and sell it right away for fiat, wait for it to fall, buy it back at a lower price, then return the assets to the brokerage you borrowed them from, and pocket the difference. You will have to use a broker allowing margin trading to be able to short sell an asset.
Signals 101: Buy when it’s green, stay away from the market when it’s blue, short sell when it’s orange.

Long/short vs. Long only strategies

Some models are specific and operate with 2 modes only: neutral and long. These strategies are as follows:

BTC/ETH/USD allocation model

This model is the result of our BTC/USD, ETH/USD and ETH/BTC strategies and few priority rules between them. The goal is to enable you to optimize your asset alloccation between BTC and ETH by taking into account these three strategies as a whole. The performance of this strategy is calculated in USD.

Refresh and timing

Trading signals are updated daily at market close. Crypto markets being open 24/7, closing time is set at 00:00 (12:00 AM) UTC for the crypto strategies (BTC/USD, ETH/USD, BTC/ETH).

  • Within two hours before the signal is made available, date and time are replaced by a countdown and the website reads “Next signal in”.

Which broker/exchange platform should I use?

You can use the broker/exchange of your choice, however we recommend to trade only on trusted platforms offering good liquidity. On the centralized exchange side, Binance, Coinbase, Huobi, UpBit, Kraken or Bittrex, to name a few, are well-known patforms that have a good reputation, a solid customer base, a reliable trading engine and will provide a good level of liquidity. On the DEX side, IDEX, ForkDelta, Bancor and Kyber are worth considering.

F. About the strategies’ performance

The average performance delivered by a low- to medium-frequency strategy is measured over the long term (12 months and more). In all case, the fact that it is positive does not mean that all trades it has initiated have been or will be systematically beneficial.

Short-term volatility

Because of their low to medium frequency, our trading algorithms are not necessarily sensitive to daily price fluctuations. Their position (signal) may therefore remain the same while the underlying experiences a certain volatility. This is especially true for crypto markets, where volatility is high.

Now it’s up to you!

Now that reading the signals and executing your orders have no more secret for you, use them wisely, and have a safe trading!
