The Market’s Compass Crypto Candy Sixteen Examine

Welcome to the the third publication of the Market’s Compass Weekly Crypto Candy Sixteen Examine. The Examine tracks the technical situation of sixteen of the bigger market cap cryptocurrencies. I’ve compiled the historic quantitative goal technical rating information and secondary technical indicators together with the Candy Sixteen Whole Technical Rankings and Weekly Common Technical Rating again to October of 2021. Each week the Research will spotlight the technical modifications of the 16 cryptocurrencies that I monitor in addition to particular person highlights on noteworthy strikes in sure cryptocurrencies and Indexes.

The Excel spreadsheet beneath signifies the weekly change within the goal Technical Rating (“TR”) of every particular person Cryptocurrency. The technical rating or scoring system is a completely quantitative strategy that makes use of a number of technical issues that embody however usually are not restricted to pattern, momentum, measurements of accumulation/distribution and relative energy. If a person Cryptocurrency’s technical situation improves the Technical Rating (“TR”) rises, and conversely, if the technical situation continues to deteriorate, the TR falls. The TR of every particular person Cryptocurrency can vary from 0 to 50. The spreadsheet beneath additionally acts as a “warmth map” in that, cryptocurrencies with a TR within the vary of 1 to fifteen are highlighted in pink, 15.5 to 34.5 are famous in blue and TRs within the vary of 35 to 50 are in inexperienced. The first take-away from this unfold sheet must be the pattern of the person TRs, both the continued enchancment or deterioration, in addition to a change in course. A sustained pattern change must unfold within the particular person TRs for it to be actionable. Secondarily a really low rating can sign an oversold situation and conversely a continued very excessive quantity may be seen as an overbought situation however, as we all know, over offered circumstances can proceed at apace and overbought securities which have exhibited extraordinary momentum can simply develop into extra overbought. Thirdly, the weekly TRs are a precious relative energy/weak spot indicator vs. one another, as well as when the Candy Sixteen Whole Technical Rating (“SSTTR”), that has a spread of 0 to 800, is close to the underside of its vary and a person cryptocurrency has a TR that continues to be elevated it speaks to relative energy. Conversely if the SSTTR is close to the highest of its latest vary and a person cryptocurrency has a TR that continues to be mired at low ranges it speaks to relative weak spot. Lastly I view the target Technical Rankings as a place to begin in my evaluation and it isn’t your complete “finish recreation”.

This Week’s and 10 Week Trailing Technical Rankings of the 16 Particular person Cryptocurrencies*

*Rankings are calculated as much as Friday

As may be seen within the unfold sheet above there was a contraction within the particular person goal technical rating (TR) of the Crypto Candy Sixteen week over week in addition to the Whole Candy Sixteen Technical Rating (TSSTR). The TSSTR fell -27.7% to 416 from the earlier weeks overbought studying of 576 (chart and additional dialogue of that technical situation follows later within the Weblog).

On a Wow foundation, all sixteen Cryptocurrencies registered deterioration of their goal TRs. Three Cryptos ended the week within the “inexperienced zone” (TRs of between 35 and 50), eleven are within the “blue zone” (TRs between 15.5 and 34.5) and two ended up within the “pink zone” (TRs between 1 and 15). The earlier week there have been 10 Crypto’s within the inexperienced zone and 6 within the “blue zone”. One other information level that’s revealing is the throughout the board technical deterioration with the typical TR dropping -10. Though a number of held up higher, as may be seen from the typical TR lose most have been badly dented. Polkadot (DOT) had essentially the most “handles” chopped off its TR by falling -20 to fifteen from 35. For the third week in a row Ethereum (ETH) sports activities one of the best technical rating of the Candy Sixteen and one of the best relative energy vs. the CCi30 Index*. Charts and feedback comply with beneath…

The inexperienced field highlights the value motion in DOT from Friday to Friday. On Tuesday of final week DOT went on to a brand new swing excessive however as may be seen, MACD was signaling a lack of upside momentum (yellow dashed line) regardless of the upper value pivot which gave a clue, by way of non-confirmation, that the transfer larger wouldn’t be sustainable and {that a} value retracement was within the playing cards. Breaking help on the Kijun Plot (strong inexperienced line) and Cloud help on Wednesday recommended {that a} correction of a bigger diploma was creating. On the time of scripting this notice on Saturday afternoon, a feeble bounce had unfolded and each the Fisher Remodel and MACD have begun to show however the technical injury has been formidable and the 6.10/6.20 stage will seemingly cap any continuance of the counter pattern rally for the foreseeable future.

*The CCi30 Index is a registered trademark and was created and is maintained by an impartial group of mathematicians, quants and fund managers lead by Igor Rivin. It’s is a rules-based index designed to objectively measure the general progress, each day and long-term motion of the blockchain sector. It does so by monitoring the 30 largest cryptocurrencies by market capitalization, excluding steady cash (extra particulars may be discovered at

Ethereum reached a 2023 excessive of two,146.50 final Sunday earlier than final week’s 14% value drop (Sunday’s excessive to Saturday’s low) however relative to the CCi30 Index ETH has held up much better than any of the opposite 15 Cryptos we monitor in these pages. This may be seen within the backside panel in chart above and beneath within the string of relative energy charts).

Additional Measurements of Relative Power and Weak spot within the Candy Sixteen

“What’s in Your Pockets?”

A have a look at the relative energy/weak spot of the Crypto Candy Sixteen versus the CCi30 Index.

Binance (BNB), ChainLink (LINK) and TRON (TRX) have recovered from their 7-month Relative Power lows versus the CCi30 Index this previous week and are again above each their shorter and long run transferring averages.

Relative Rotation Graph of the Candy Sixteen

The Relative Rotation Graph, generally known as RRGs have been developed in 2004-2005 by Julius de Kempenaer. These charts are a novel visualization software for relative energy evaluation. Chartists can use RRGs to research the relative energy developments of a number of securities in opposition to a typical benchmark, (on this case the CCi30 Index) and in opposition to one another over any given time interval (within the case beneath each day because the finish of the top of final week. The facility of RRG is its means to plot relative efficiency on one graph and present true rotation. All RRGs charts use 4 quadrants to outline the 4 phases of a relative pattern. The Optuma RRG charts makes use of, From Main (in inexperienced) to Weakening (in yellow) to Lagging (in pink) to Bettering (in blue) and again to Main (in inexperienced). True rotations may be seen as securities transfer from one quadrant to the opposite over time. That is solely a quick rationalization of how one can interpret RRG charts. To be taught extra see the submit scripts and hyperlinks on the finish of this Weblog.

The 7-day RRG Chart above reveals the development in two of the three aforementioned Cryptos which have recovered on a relative foundation vs. the CCi30 Index because the finish of final week. Each LINK and BNB are getting into or are about to enter the Main Quadrant together with Cosmos (ATOM). Dogecoin (DOGE) is bettering and is popping larger within the Weakening Quadrant whereas each Ripple (XRP) and Stellar (XLM) have accelerated into Lagging Quadrant from Weakening final week.

Seven Day Absolute % Value Change*

*Sunday to Sunday AM

The Technical Situation Issue modifications because the week ending February tenth

There are eight Technical Situation Elements (“TCFs”) that decide particular person TR scores (0-50). Every of those 8, ask goal technical questions (see the spreadsheet posted above). If a technical query is optimistic a further level is added to the person TR. Conversely if the technical query is detrimental, it receives a “0”. Just a few TCFs carry extra weight than the others such because the Weekly Pattern Issue and the Weekly Momentum Consider compiling every particular person TR of every of the 16 Cryptocurrencies. Due to that, the excel sheet above calculates every issue’s weekly studying as a p.c of the attainable whole. For instance, there are 7 issues (or questions) within the Each day Momentum Technical Situation Issue (“DMTCF”) of the 16 Cryptocurrencies ETFs (or 7 X 16) for a attainable vary of 0-112 if all 16 had fulfilled the DMTCF standards the studying could be 112 or 100%.

This previous week a 11.61% studying within the DMTCF was registered for the week ending April twenty first, or 13 of a attainable whole of 112 optimistic factors. The week earlier than the DMTCF studying had risen to a overbought studying of 91.07% or 102 of 112 optimistic factors (overbought studying vary from 85% to 100%). The present studying leaves the DMTCF within the short-term oversold vary between 0% and 15%.

As a affirmation software, if all eight TCFs enhance on per week over week foundation, extra of the 16 Cryptocurrencies are bettering internally on a technical foundation, confirming a broader market transfer larger (consider an advance/decline calculation). Conversely, if extra of the TCFs fall on per week over week foundation, extra of the “Cryptos” are deteriorating on a technical foundation confirming the broader market transfer decrease. Final week 7 TCFs fell and one moved larger confirming the transfer decrease within the broader Cryptocurrency market.

The CCi30 Index with This Week’s Candy Sixteen Whole Technical Rating “SSTTR” Overlaid

The Candy Sixteen Whole Technical Rating (“SSTTR”) Indicator is a complete of all 16 Cryptocurrency rankings and may be checked out as a affirmation/divergence indicator in addition to an overbought oversold indicator. As a affirmation/divergence software: If the broader market as measured by the CCi30 Index continues to rally and not using a commensurate transfer or larger transfer within the SSTTR the continued rally within the CCi30 Index turns into more and more in jeopardy. Conversely, if the CCi30 Index continues to print decrease lows and there may be little change or a constructing enchancment within the SSTTR a optimistic divergence is registered. That is, in a style, is sort of a conventional A/D Line. As an overbought/oversold indicator: The nearer the SSTTR will get to the 800 stage (all 16 Cryptocurrencies having a TR of fifty) “issues can’t get a lot better technically” and a rising quantity particular person Crypto’s have develop into “stretched” there may be extra of an opportunity of a pullback within the CCi30. On the flip aspect the nearer to an excessive low “issues can’t get a lot worse technically” and a rising variety of Crypto’s are “washed out technically” and an oversold rally or measurable low is nearer to being in place. The 13-week transferring common in Purple smooths the unstable SSTTR readings and analytically is a greater indicator of pattern.

Regardless of final week’s pullback within the CCi30 Index, the 10-month base constructing course of continues. I used to be by no means stunned to see a value retracement unfold final week. The SSTTR had entered overbought territory in live performance with value approaching potential resistance on the Higher Parallel (strong gold line) of the Schiff Modified Pitchfork (gold P1 by way of P3). I selected that Pitchfork variation as a result of value revered the Higher Parallel (then help) in June of final yr (yellow circle). The 13-Week Transferring Common (pink line) has begun to roll over however it additionally did so in March earlier than the subsequent leg larger. I now mark key help at first the Decrease Parallel of the Schiff Modified Pitchfork (presently 7200) and subsequent on the P3 swing low. Remembering that my technical thesis is that this a base constructing course of, I nonetheless consider that the CCi30 Index will simply problem value resistance ultimately June/July highs on the 10,000 /11,000 stage within the weeks forward.
