Can I filter assets by Marketcap, Order Book and Volume?

We have incorporated simple controls that allow users to fast filter assets by specifying a dollar amount and and filtering the users choice of all assets which are greater than or less than the amount specified. This method of filtering simply removes the coins from the asset scanner below. We also provide Depth of Market filtering which has its own FAQ dedicated to its function.

How does the crypto Depth of Market filter work?

In addition to filtering assets by their overall liquidity, we also offer the ability to see market depth by % of the top of order books or “nearest the money”. The value of using this filter is so that one can observe how much of the orders are serious and “in play” versus how many are well outside the likelihood of execution along with identifying support and resistance points. Typically depending on the price of the asset as to the more appropriate market depth to evaluate.

For example, with an asset that costs $1usd, the top 5%-10% of the books between .90cents and $1.10 may very well be in play. For an asset that costs $10,000, it is unlikely that orders between $9000-$11000 would be in play and would be more appropriate to look at the top 1% of the order books in this case, observing orders between $9900-$10100 which are likely orders in play.

When filtering depth by % of books, the filter applies to all data, asks, bids, books, charts, etc. This does not hide any assets, it hides what could be considered irrelevant order books byond the percentage specified.

What are crypto global and regional markets?

We offer the ability to observe market performance by region. We can see the progress of adoption or the result of legislation across a variety of regions independently. Simply click the market drop down and choose the markets you would like to see.We create regions based on the underlyng exchanges which are assessed and classified by the following.

  • Source of bulk  of Internet traffic
  • Headquarters / Company/site posture
  • Site primary language
  • Country fiat Trading pairs supported

This filter will update all the top assets, global books, volume and marketcap values as well as the available assets in the coin scanner below and any non-related exchanges from the coin-depth page. The metrics you see for each asset is only based on the region selected. We default to global crypto markets.


Simply click on the markets filter button and choose the regional market you want to see.

How is crypto market capitalization (MarketCap) calculated?

Asset market capitalizaton is typically assessed by multiplying the current per share/coin/token price by the total circulation of shares/coins/tokens. The total number in circulation for many crypto assets is of debate since many of the major sites report different market caps for the same assets.

 You may notice that the global market cap is higher on our website than on other market-cap based sites. We feel what the market provides now is a market capitalization based on a conjectured circulation, many times only defined in a non-legally-binding white-paper. For most coins/tokens, any coin that has already been minted can be sold at any time. Our marketcap calculations include all coins which exist today since for most assets, the entirety of their circulation could be made liquid at any time.

Our approach is one that if a coin/token developer has decided to mint coins before they need them and want to sit on them, thats fine but then they should be okay with counting those coins against their market capitalization. There are an array of techniques for minting coins/tokens after the initial genesis block/contract in a controlled and judicial manner for those developers who are more concerned with their perceived market capitalization.

We will also be implementing a conjecture based market capitalization as another field option users can choose which will reflect a similar figure as what may be found in competing market-cap sites later down the road, but not as a priority.

Can I filter out exchanges I dont want to see?

We saw the effects of coin scanners arbitrarily including and removing exchanges from their averages and we felt the solution was simple, let this be the users choice, not the website developers choice. We enable users to filter exchanges from the results providing numbers that exclude data from filtered exchanges. If you dont want to see prices influenced by BitHumb’s premium, filter bithumb from the data-set, you want to see all the binance exchanges combined, no problem.

Simply click on filters/exchanges and then select or un-select the exchanges you want to see or filter.

What are books avg/24?

Volume isnt plotted in current value but rather the aggregate of the last 24 hours. We see a similar value in charting books based on more than just the current value. Charting books real time is helpful for active trading but it makes it more difficult to see the overall trends. We have now included a books/24 value which simply provides the average of the books over the last 24 hours and we set this as default. For users wishing to see realtime books instead, simply drop down the books menu and select real-time. This data is also availabel as a field from the field chooser and is how we relay combined order books in the mini-charts.

How can I customize this screener?

We easily qualify as the most comprehensive and customizable coin scanners on the market today. To us, providing this function just makes sense. See the data you want to see, how you want to see it, in the order you want to see it. We may be the first coin scanner to do this but we shouldn't be the last, others will follow.

Simply click on the feild chooser, choose the fields you want from the fields available and then drag and drop them in the order you want to see the data. Watch the screen change as you change your selections.

We have also recently added the ability to drag and drop fields to move them around on the screen directly.

Cookies also help us keep your account safe. By continuing to visit or use our services, you are agreeing to the use of cookies and similar technologies for the purposes we describe in this policy.

What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small file placed onto your device that enables VantageCrypto features and functionality. For example, cookies enable us to identify your device, secure your access to Vantag eCrypto and our sites generally, and even help us know if someone attempts to access your account from a different device. Cookies also enable you to easily share content on VantageCrypto and help us serve relevant ads to you.

When does VantageCrypto place cookies?
We use cookies on our sites and mobile applications. Any browser visiting these sites will receive cookies from us. We also place cookies in your brows er when you visit non-VantageCrypto sites that host our plugins (for example, VantageCrypto’s “Share” button) or tags.

What types of cookies does VantageCrypto use?
We use two types: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie helps us recognize you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return to VantageCrypto or interact with our ser vices without signing in again. After you sign in, a persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by VantageCrypto when you return to one of our sites or a partner site that us es our services (for example, our sharing or job application buttons). Session cookies only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).

What are cookies used for?
Cookies can be used to recognize you when you visit VantageCrypto, remember your preferences, and give you a personalized experience that’s in line with your settings. Cookies also make yo ur interactions with VantageCrypto faster and more secure. Additionally, cookies allow us to bring you advertising both on and off the VantageCrypto sites, and bring customized features to you through VantageCrypto plugins such as our “Share” button. Categories of Use Description

We may use cookies to show you relevant advertising both on and off the VantageCrypto site. We may also use a cookie to learn whether someone who saw an ad later visited and took an action (e.g. downloaded a white paper or made a purchase) on the advertiser’s site. Similarly, our partners may use a cookie to determine whether we’ve shown an ad and how it performed, or provi de us with information about how you interact with ads. We may also work with a partner to show you an ad on or off VantageCrypto, such as after you’ve visited a partner’s site or applicat ion.
Performance, Analytics and Research Cookies help us learn how well our site and plugins perform in different locations. We also use cookies to understand, improve, and research products, features, and services, including whe n you access VantageCrypto from other websites, applications, or devices such as your work computer or your mobile device.

What is Do Not Track (DNT)?
DNT is a concept that has been promoted by regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), for the Internet industry to develop and implement a mechanism for allowing Internet users to control the tracking of their online activities across websites by using browser settings. The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has been working with industry groups, Inte rnet browsers, technology companies, and regulators to develop a DNT technology standard. While some progress has been made, it has been slow. No standard has been adopted to this date. As such, VantageCrypto does not generally respond to “do not track” signals.

How are cookies used for advertising purposes?
Cookies and similar ad technologies help us serve relevant ads to you more effectively. They also help us provide aggregated auditing, research, and reporting for advertisers, understand a nd improve our service, and know when content has been shown to you. Note: Because your web browser may request advertisements and beacons directly from third party ad network servers, the se networks can view, edit, or set third party cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site. Ads served by VantageCrypto may also set third party cookies.

If you are a VantageCrypto member but logged out of your account on a browser, VantageCrypto may still continue to log your interaction with our services on that browser for up to 30 days in order to generate usage analytics for our services, which analytics we may share in aggregate form with our advertising customers.

Why are there limited assets and exchanges?

We have taken an approach of only listing exchanges and assets that are Trading Grade.

Trading Grade and Investment Grade are not the same. Investment Grade relies on company/project fundamentals where as Trading Grade focuses on trusted liquidity required to be trade worthy. Though they are different, investors will find most Investment Grade assets are Trading Grade assets as well. If an asset is not Trading Grade, there is a good chance its not Investment Grade either.

The majority of crytpo projects are not trading grade at this time although there are many platforms and hundreds of assets that are. The criteria we use to determine Trade Worthy assets and platforms are as follows.

Exchanges:

  • Have ample Liquidity
  • Have ample Volume
  • Are not evident purveyors of fake volume or order books (BVR)
  • Are reputable

Assets:

  • On a reputable exchange
  • Sees a minimum level or regular surges of daily liquidity over the last 90 days
  • Sees a minimum level or regular surges of daily volume over the last 90 days
  • Are not evident purveyors of fake volume or order books
  • *New assets: Meets minimum liquidity and volume requirments for 3 days

 

The decision to cull non-trading grade assets was based on the principal of our business model which currently focuses on advanced market metrics.  If users desire to see details from 1000 crypto exchanges and 5000 assets regardless of their liquidity, there are plenty of sites available to do so.

We do intend to integrate 100's of other exchanges and 1000's of assets (without advanced market metrics) eventually, as an option for our users through partnership with a mainstream site that supports this data now.

Interpreting order flow data on vcdepth.io

Crypto Market order flow data from VantageCrypto available on https://vcdepth.io

We track the entire order flow process from order books to executed orders. On the site, we distinctly differentiate between order books and order flow where order books focus on outstanding orders which represents an assets real-time liquidity and order flow focuses on the executed bids and asks or x-Bids and x-Asks. Combined, this data can often determine whether volume was as a result of buying, selling, market orders or limit orders and can even highlight liquidations.

X-bids and x-asks are exactly what they sound like. X-bids are executed bids, this represents a sell as the seller sells at the buyers bid price. x-asks represent a buy where the buyer buys at the sellers ask price. Right now we chart real-time data but soon we will also offer an array of other data such as moving averages to smooth charting and provide more defined trends and crossovers.

the order flow ratio or OFR is the same as our market depth ratio but instead of charting the ratio between outstanding bids and asks, we track the ratio between executed bids and executed asks. The OFR provides a single value that depicts whether there is more buying or selling and comparatively how much, displayed as a percentage. If we currently have a -5% OFR it means that there is currently 5% more sell orders executing than there are buy orders.

We also provide the order flow information panel here to the right of the chart. On the front page we provide data for the global crypto market combined. There are a few major components to this panel. At the top we show the current volume 24 hour running average, OFR, x-bids and x-asks followed by our large order alerts.

Our large order alerts report any buy or sell order of which in its entirety is larger than 5% of the current combined active order books for that asset on the exchange that it occurs on. For example this buy order for 200 thousand dollars on binance represents that at the time of execution, combined orderbooks for binance USD were less than 4 million dollars as a $200,000 dollar order is 5% of 4 million dollars. These alerts are intended to alert users of institutional investor activities and when orders are large enough to impact the assets liquidity on the exchange they are trading on. Its also important to point out, we see more large order alerts in the derivatives market. We are currently only tracking order flow for derivatives on bitmex but will be adding order flow for our other derivatives exchanges shortly. Only about half the exchanges on our site currently have order flow integrated, the others will be updated in the very near future.

The last part of the order flow information panel provides a visual into the average size of the orders being processed and how recently we witnessed the order flow volume. We break the size of the orders into 3 categories, small orders, less than $100 dollars, medium sized orders less than $50,000 dollars and large orders, over $50,000 dollars. This break down is displayed visually for both buys and sells. Each section of the bar represents the amount and percent of the various sizes of buys and sells over the last 24 hours.

The order-flow time bar seeks to visually identify the momentum of order flow. We also separate the data into 3 parts for both buys and sells. The 1st bar represents buys or sells in the last hour, expressed as an absolute value and as a percent of all the volume over the last 24 hours. The second bar identifies buys and sells over the last 6 hours and the third bar represents how much of the volume was more than 6 hours ago but less than 24 hours ago.

We also offer an alpha version of our trading view charts with this data and will be adding the additional moving averages for both our order books and order flow data in the near future. Additionally, we also add order flow columns to the field chooser underneath individual assets and exchanges.

Overview of Sector Indices for crypto markets

Hello everyone, in this video, we are going to talk about a new first to market feature we recently released, we have sector indices for Crypto! We modeled our indices after the same formula used to calculate the S&P500 and it has produced some pretty interesting results.

Each sector index represents a like group of assets and we track the books, volume and marketcap for each index. The indices have names that relate to their underlying assets. For example we have Block Chain As A Service index, Stable coin index, Privacy, distributed storage and compute indices and a lot more, almost 20 indexes already.  Even just watching the stable coin index open interest and volume is hugely helpful to see when money is moving to the sidelines.

On the global indices page that we are looking at here, I really like the chart that shows where the money is in blockchain, what sectors are people putting the most money into as a whole.  Of course thanks to Bitcoin we can see that the Money index accounts for 65% of the entire market, that is global market dominance. We can look at the index score here and see that the second closest competitor is Block Chain as a A Service and its quite a ways behind. Its also amazing to see how a few sectors dominate the majority of the money in crypto.

-- So lets take a look at BlockChain As a Service -- these are all chains that are being used for tokenizing assets, providing smart contracts and a dapp platform to name some of their larger applications. It is not a surprise to see that Ethereum, the blockchain that pioneered BlockChain As A Service with a near 50% market domination among its emerging peers with EOS as a distant second with a little over 10% of the market. I do find it interesting to see these other players chip away at Ethereums market dominance like this. -- Lets look at the privacy coin index.   --    Again no surprise to see Monero dominating the sector with more than 50% dominance and Dash the only close contender.  Looking at the trend for the year we can see the sector is actually lower than it was a year ago as a whole. It will be interesting to see how this index reacts to anti-laundering legislation aimed at this sector in the future.

 

Our competitors put all assets into one bag and basically compare them against Bitcoin for market dominance despite providing completely different services. We have an easy way to see how an entire Blockchain sub-sector is performing compared to other sectors and we enable you to see what assets have market dominance within their sector, against their competition. If you are going to use marketcap valuation as a measure of dominance, this is the way to do it, not like our competition.

Basic functions and features available on vcdepth.io

Today we 

We want to take this opportunity to point out that we are still in beta and are aggressively releasing new to market features and performing bug fix on an ongoing bases. Lets start by looking at the front page, already you can see our screener isn’t the same as everyone elses.

The first thing you might notice is that we don’t just track marketcap and volume, we also track global liquidity for crypto markets. There is no other site online today that captures global market liquidity for crypto. Also notice we correlate global books, volume and marketcap so that crypto enthusiasts can get a quick gauge on the overall market trends. For the chart we are also in the process of integrating advanced TradingView Chart libraries but at the moment we do offer a simple chart that is effective enough in a pinch. Also notice here, a system notification, this one lets users know there was a de-listing and removal of an asset with $30million in books so that users know it wasn’t a market sell off. We will look at the chart data a little more in a minute.

Notice the fields you see here, including a real time miniature-depth chart and something you might not realize until you saw this video, you can change these variables to be what you want to see. For example, maybe you are more interested in what has happened in the last 3 hours, simply change it to 3 hours and go. -Now notice when I sort by price change, there are a lot of, not really great assets that you can see have little to no liquidity or volume. Here, I am just going to filter the results to exclude any coin with less than $250,000 in books. I could of filtered by volume or market cap as well but chose order books to demonstrate the difference between using this filter and our depth of market filter which we will get to shortly.

Also while we are here I want to show you something, - with two miniature-charts per row, - and here I can scroll down the list and it loads quite responsively. Try that with some of our competitors even with only one mini-chart per line. I demonstrate this just to emphasize the strength of our team and our product

Okay, lets talk about you being able to see the data you want to see, how you want to see it! Take a look at this, over 30 fields to choose from and growing. The mini charts, you can come in here and choose if you want a 1 day, 3 day, weekly, whatever, you could do all visuals if you wanted. While we are in here though, I want to take this opportunity to show you our Triple Variable Trend feature, the TVT. Let me just put it where I want it, - and maybe just change this real quick. - Now watch this, it’s a trend like many other sites offer but how is ours different? - Lets say you are looking for coins trending now, you might want to change this to be 1,2 & 3 hours. – its the data you want to see, how you want to see it.

One more thing while we are here on the front page, I am just going to clear the filters and - take a look at this, you can now see data specific to each regional market. You can see as the regions trend, we also expand on this data for each asset and we are expanding this data-set in future releases. But here is something else interesting, If you think that some South Korean exchange has too high of prices, you just exclude them yourself. - we wont do it, and then tell you later - you can do it, if you so choose, - right here. Again, the data you want to see, how you want to see it.

Okay lets take a look at the coindepth page now, lets use Ethereum, the leading Blockchain As A Service solution. First, notice the real-time global depth panel here, this is a great way to show you what happens when we change the depth of books filter. Depending on the price of the asset as to how much of the order book is actually in play. So look at what happens when we change the depth of books from 100% to 5%. If an asset is $200 then at 5% we are watching a $10 spread in each direction from the current price - And this is what those books look like. Here is at 10%, or maybe better at 2.5% - which would be within $5 on a $200 asset – and by the way, all the historical charting and mini-charts update with this filter as well. Lets talk about the chart for a second now, again, trading view advanced charting options, coming soon. In the meantime, we offer our simple-chart view. The depth24 is a 24 hour moving average of the books, you can also choose to see real time books.

We also enable you to see the bids and asks charted out independently. What is also interesting is the difference in the bids and asks when looking at near the money, near the strike price - which also adjusts based on the depth of books you select, as you see here. - we also chart our MDR indicator which seems to be quite powerful for capturing shifts in market sentiment. Now take a look down here, if we want to see for example, what trading pair provides the most liquidity by exchange, we can just click right here and see the liquidity broken down and with visuals. We can do this on an exchange by exchange VC Explainer Script #1a bases.

We also enable users to see the current price for each trading-pair, converted to your chosen currency for ease in comparing prices, which may also expose intra-exchange arbitration opportunities. We can also see a market summary across all regional markets and underlying market makers. Here in the “global markets information panel” you can see the trading pairs and which ones provide the most liquidity.

Additionally you can see the performance of the asset across various regional markets, you can really get a feel for how different markets value this asset. And if you are wanting to pop between charts fast and easy, we have implemented a “recent assets info-panel” to make that super easy. This video outlines some of our features but we just scratched the surface of what

Hello everyone, today I want to talk to you about our API subscription services we recently launched. We are changing the face of subscription

API data by providing modular, user customizable data-sets at affordable prices. We provide an array of market analytics via API including market depth and order flow data from all major exchanges and assets. We also provide powerful metrics that you can’t find anywhere else.
We offer a free API key to all of our users and we provide some important data for trading, for free! Our free package also gives a decent amount of free a-p-i calls per month.

 

We do offer some pre-canned API packages priced at a discount with some of the more popular data sets. We offer further discount if you change to a yearly billing plan.

 

Now this is one of the many things that makes us better than our competition, the ability to subscribe to just the data you want, as much of that data as you want and as far back as you need it - up to 90 days currently and we are working to make more of our historical data available via API soon. As you can see here, we provide pricing transparency you don’t see elsewhere in the industry and a modular subscription service that is the first of its kind. We may force our competition to follow suit but make no mistake who did this because it needed to be done and who is doing it because the competition forces them to.

 

Once you select a package, if you aren’t already logged in, you will be forwarded to the login or to register if you don’t already have an account. We make it easy with Google and Facebook integration or you can just make a local account. Here I will login with my google account.
I had already purchased a custom plan with a credit card and you can see details about the subscription below including how many calls I have already used this month, subscription rate, entitlements and more. Now I am going to click on subscribe and I am provided a summary of the order. Now that I have selected a plan that is more expensive, I receive a credit equal to the amount of unused API calls based on the original subscription rate. If I accept the terms and click pay now, I am forwarded to Square merchant services to pay for my subscription.

 

In this case I actually don’t want to buy a more expensive package, I actually want to downgrade --- So now my monthly rate is a bit lower than what I have already paid. This time we can see my discount is greater than the subscription price and the credit will be shown on our account and applied to the next billing cycle.

 

We have to click to view and accept our privacy and user agreement --- notice within the user agreement we link to our API agreement that you are also accepting. Our current agreement is quite liberal and allows you to use the data to create a service that you charge for with no additional overhead beyond your API subscription costs though there are some limitations. Please review the documentation for full details prior to agreeing to the terms.


Notice once your order processes which should be quite fast, we see my credit on my account and we can pull our API key or in this case, continue using the same key we had previously before we changed our plans. Also notice at the bottom here, we link to our API reference. There is a text file that has some technical guidance and examples and we have a nice visual break down of the API structure here where we break down the various URI paths to access various API points, each page in support of different data types. We have more data coming to these existing API calls along with new API calls coming soon.


To see this data visualized please visit vcdepth.io. See the details in this post for the transcript and additional links. To see an example of the API calls in use see our additional explainer video which is also linked in the description.

This covers using our API subscription interface. If you have any more questions about the service feel free to email us at- support at vantagecrypto.com.

Transcript:

Hello everyone, this is a quick overview of our current API structure. I have a custom subscription I am using and have authenticated my request with my API key. From here we will manipulate the URI to seamlessly navigate around the intuitive API structure.


Here we have access to 30 days of historical data and look for 1% depth of market of Ethereum on the combined global markets. Because we have not specified a timestamp, we are currently looking at real time values.
If I want to look at historical, I can just add a timestamp like this to pull the historical value I want as long as it’s within the date range of historical data that I have subscribed to.

 

Notice we can access shorter duration branches then we have subscribed to but we cannot access longer duration's. This makes it easy for developers to seamlessly migrate to longer duration subscriptions later.


From here its really easy to see what you want, first we identify the data such as 1% depth of market or order flow data which I have subscribed to. I cannot access data I have not subscribed to.


I next choose the market I want these values for, the combined global markets --- Derivatives --- eastern, western and individual exchanges. --- The values shown for each asset are for all trading pairs combined on each exchange.


Lastly, we specify the specific asset such as Bitcoin, Ethereum or Link or one of around four hundred other trading grade assets we currently support.
You can specify a timestamp or otherwise append your API key here to authenticate your request. As a reminder, do not share you’re API key with anyone.


For further reference please look at our API documentation on gitlab, you can also find a link to our explainer video for API subscription services in the description and you can visit vcdepth.io to see the datasets live.
As always, thanks for watching

About Vantage Signals

Vantage Signals Advanced Singalling Bot

Vantage Signals | Signalling Bots

We are actively assembling a library of free scripts, opensource (GPL) software and providing free alerts with these engines in our discord channels, telegram and twitter for an array of assets and strategies. We encourage more technical users to create add-on code or fork and improve and make even more options available for everyone

Other than our Large Order Alert bot, most of our bots make post flag performance reports letting users know how the asset performed after the flag at various intervals after the initial flag. The indicator configuration of our bots leave a huge amount of room for millions of variation and applicaiton to different trading styles. Its super easy to visualize the data you are working with and approproate thresholds by looking at the data live on our live data website.

We run our bots in our discord channel if you would like to see what their output and results may look like. Discord Channel

Sign up for a free or inexpensive customizable API key here >  VantageCrypto API Subscriptions

We will outline the bots of which we either have available now including links to their source code and an FAQ article dedicated to each bot. We are also working on more than just these bots, see below for a preview.


Signalling bot overview


3x Momentum bot / 3xmom-bot

We call it 3x because it checks for momentum over a user specified duration using 3 sources: price, volume and order books. When all of the attributes confirm momentum we push a flag. This bot is extremely configurable just from the command line. Users have thousands of configurable options to make their bot distinct and use for different applications and trading styles.

Source code is here> Vantage 3xmombot source code

See more about this script here>> About 3xmom bot


Large Order Alerts

We look for large orders across derivatives and major digital asset equities exchanges and post alerts when we see large transactiosn take place. We provide date, exchange, asset and amount that the large order was witnessed on. We are checking for single orders that are greater than 5% of the combined order books for the exchange it was executed on.

Source code is here> Vantage Large Order Alert (LOA)bot source code

See more about this script here>> About LOABOT


OverBot

We look at trends in order books and order flow ratios and signal based on those trends, its very easy to see where different assets signal using different market depths and running averages.  These indicators have come to be a valuable metric in assessing over bough and over sold conditions in the market.

Source code is here> OverBot Source Code

See more about this script here>> About OverBot


OrderBot

We look at trends in the size and the timing of buy and sell orders.  Signal based on buys or sells increasing or decreasing over the last hour, 6 hours or 24 hours. Signal when more whales are pushing buys or sells with transaction sizes over $50,000 or when the bulk of the volume appears to be from average traders.

Source code is here> OrderBot Source Code

See more about this script here>> About OrderBot


FlowBot

We look at the bids and asks and the xbids and xasks each separately with this bot.  We can signal in rise of bids or asks and sells or buys or we can also signal on golden cross or death cross crossovers. This is a great bot for capturing flow between order books and executed orders.

VantageSignals Large Order Alert Bot LOABOT

Below is a capture of the help from the application/script. just create a shell script to run the app with the switches configured as you desire and your signal channel will be online. The script can report to Discord channel or public Telegram channel.

About Our Large Order Alerts: We classify any order as a large order if the order size is at least 5% of all combined order books for that asset on the exchange it was witnessed on.  So if an exhange XYZ has and asset ABC that has $1,000,000 of combined order books and witnesses a single transaction > $50,000 for asset ABC on exchange XYZ, it will signal as a large order. Exchanges and assets with lower liquidity may signal at lower levels than other assets/exchanges. We never post a transaction below $20k as a large order and users of this script can filter out the minimum size requirement to be considered "large"

APi Subscription requirements: LOA, RT or longer subscription. Number of API calls depends on how often you poll and how many assets you are polling.


  • Source code (Clone or download)
  • Self installer "python3.7 setup.py install" see readme in repo
  • Redis is optional but important if you want to be able to kill and restart the process without lossing what transactions you have already logged.
  • If you have questions you can aks us in our help discord channel
  • You can see the markets, assets and values to qualify your signal settings at https://vcdepth.io
  • Derivatives markets tend to see more large orders
  • We are still in the process of implementing large order alerts on the rest of the exchanges we are integrated with
  • Different Scripts require different subscriptions to support, make sure you have the API data you need for the script
  • A script must run for each asset/market you want to monitor, alternatively you can use global/global, derivatives/global or any market/global to see all asset alerts for that market. Otherwise this script will only alert large orders on the asset specified.
  • Old app was vc-discord-3xmom, new app is vc-signals-3xmom
  • Opensource and our API is a liberal license to use our data for profit but you should state that you use VantageCrypto data in your channel description per VantageAPI user agreement.

Usage Example:

vc-signals-loa -a GLOBAL -m GLOBAL -i 5 -f 500000  -r redis:localhost:6379 VANTAGECRYPTO_API_KEY https://discord.com/api/webhooks/12345678abcdefg1a2b3c --debug  >> /var/log/bots/3xmombot_lend.log &

This script

  • Automatically prints the last 5 alerts on startup
  • Checks for any asset on Global markets
  • It check for new entries every 5 minutes
  • We do nor report transactions under $500,000
  • We use redis
  • We pump the alert out to a discord channel webhook
  • We are debugging so we see the API calls and the logic in action and we pump all the output into a log file
  • We run it in the background.

usage: vc-signals-loa [-h] [-a ASSET] [-m MARKET] [-i INTERVAL] [-r REDIS]

Vantage Signals Post Flag Performance Reporting calculation

Post Flag Performance report calculation

We set TI (Tracking Interval) timeframes in our signals and brute force back tests as a way to go back after the signal has fired and evaluate its performance. Users can set up to 3 Tracking Intervals per signal. TI's are defined in minutes. For example you can set it to check the price 60 minutes after a flag, 1day (1440 Minutes), or what ever length fits your trading style. Since you can set 3 different TI's, you can test multiple length strategies.

Here are some important details to understand on how Tracking Itnervals for Post Flag Performance reporting works.

Previously our TI trackers only tracked the exact price at set time periods after the signal flags. We now want to look for the lowest or highest value that we observed during that timeframe instead. So if the TI1 is set to 60 minutes and during that 60 minutes the price goes down 5% but, at exactly 1 hour its only down 3%, we report 5%, not 3%. This also means when working additional TI timers that they should only track the high or low since the last TI period.

• TI1 will report the % change based on the highest or lowest price observed since the signal flagged
• TI2 will report the % change based on the highest or lowest price observed since TI1 completed
• TI3 will report the % change based on the highest or lowest price observed since TI2 completed

• Evaluating TI performance

  o Track the highest value polled to assess gain during TI period
  o Track the lowest value polled to assess loss during TI period

  o Determine signal success at TI period
    - If the highest price observed is a >% change from the flag value than the lowest price observed from the flag value then this is a successful bull flag or an unsuccessful bear flag
     - If the lowest price observed is a >% change from the flag value than the highest price observed from the flag value then this is a successful bear flag or an unsuccessful bull flag


  o Successful Bull flag tracks price performance against the highest price observed during a TI period
  o Successful Bear flag should track price performances against the lowest price observed during a TI period
  o Un-Successful Bull flag should track price performance against the lowest price observed during a TI period
  o Un-Successful Bear flag should track price performances against the highest price observed during a TI period

Advanced market data, candles & by the minute

 

Explore the data visually or use our API to build

 

About:
We offer our data in a modular and transparent fashion. Choose the data you want, how you want it, the rate limit you want and how much data you want. This approach enables us to offer our API for far better rates than our competition.  Not only do we let you completely customize your API plan, we also show you the pricing as you choose and change data and features with completely transparent pricing, something this industry desperately needs.

Note: We focus on trading grade assets and exchanges as well as harder to find, non persistent data such as historic order book and order flow data sets.

The APIv3 interface provides data by the minute or in candles. Each by the minute API call provides 60 data points, one minute for each hour within the hour of which the timestamp your query falls. In the case of candles, each candle length provides a different amount of data as outlined below. This format has an array of applications such as back testing for analytics bots or powering other websites and tools.

  • 5min Candles: 288 candles providing 1 day of candles per call
  • 15min Candles: 96 candles providing one day of data per call
  • 1hr Candles: 24 candles providing one day of data per call
  • 4hr Candles: 42 candles providing one week of data per call
  • 1d Candles: 28-31 candles providing one month of data per call

We offer an array of useful data candles.

  • Price OHLC | 4 values per candle | Open, High, Low and Closing price values
  • OB Candles | 5 values per candle | Averaged order books with 5 different market depth values per candle (1%, 2.5%, 5%, 10%, 100%)
  • VBS Candles | 5 values per candles | Summed Volume, Summed buys, Summed Sells, avg%buys>$50k, avg%sells>$50k
  • Social Candles | 3 values per candle | Twitter (Summed # of tweets, retweets, likes ), Reddit (summed posts, likes ), Sentiment Score
  • Derivatives Candles | 4 values per candle | Open short interest, open long interest, liquidations, funding levels

Note: We are in process of publishing these candles. Some of the candles may not be available yet, see our subscription interface for candles we have made publically available.

Our data can also be viewed online @ https://coinmarketflow.com

By using our API you agree to all the terms laid out in the VantageCrypto User Agreement and reference API agreement.

Subscription Interface:
We offer the ability to pick and choose what API version and calls you want to access and as well, how much of it you want to access. We show the pricing for what you want, as you change your subscription.

  • 100% Pricing Transparency
  • Modular subscription allows users to customize their API to meet their needs, saving even more money.
  • Hard to find order book, order flow, social and derivatives data
  • Inexpensive compared to the competition
  • Access Subscription interface here > https://coinmarketflow.com/subscriptions

Vantage Signals user guide | index

Summary
Thanks to the advanced nature of crypto currency exchanges, we have visibility into data that was never available to traders of traditional markets. Traditional equities market traders typically only have this kind of insight with contract based vehicles such as options and forex. VantageCrypto has been collecting order book & order flow data for years and social data for months, making all this data available for analysis on Vantage Signals. Our order book data is equivalent to if you were able to see every open limit order for every single share of Microsoft or Apple across all the major exchanges across the world and then when those orders executed, seeing not just volume but individual buys and sells and their size. If you are TA'ing this data with Vantage Signals, you are entering unchartered waters and are pioneering a new age of Technical Analysis with one of the most powerful tools available and designed to analyze this data in depth.

Vantage Signals is a next generation analytics and trading tools platform for crypto. Vantage Signals requires no coding to use even its most advanced features. We leverage the extensive TA-Lib library combined with our advance API data and a powerfull interface to achieve what no other platform has acheived. Imagine being able to test up to millions of algorithms at a time in a single click, but there is no need to imagine because you can do this now with out platform. The "Algo-Finder",  our brute force back testing engine, is just one of many of the powerful and unique fetures we offer that you cant find anywhere else.

Our platform is more than just a powerful brute force testing engine powered by decentralized compute. We also provide innovative collaboration for both real time and historical analytics with our Collaborative Analytics Interface and real time crowd signalling with signal hives. We provide fast easy to use terminals for managing webhooks, manual trade entry and bulk asset screening.

Have you experienced finding a great algorithm, only for it to start failing as market conditions change? We all have. This is why we have created multiple ways to automate you algorithm configurations to change as the market changes with adaptive algorithms and algorithm auto-tuning.

We have produced many ways for users to monetize their analytics beyond direct trading. Users can intergrate any platform that supports webhooks into our platform or intergate our platform into any other platform that uses webhooks. Trading group operators can use our platform to manage their trading groups across an array of social media like a Hootsuite for Signal group operators and we are working with the Ocean Protocol to provide a P2P, decentralized signal market place. There is no other platform that offers so many ways for users to monetize their analytics.

How to add data source API keys on Vantage Signals

Go back to Vantage Signals User Manual

In this video, we walk you through configuring VantageCrypto API keys on Vantage Signals. When we add API keys, its to add access to additional data sets for the platform to analyze. We start with our own API services for price, order book, order flow and social data. Some of the data our API offers for analysis on Vantage Signals are outlined below.

  • Order book candles: 5 Market depths in a single candle
  • VBS/Volume Buy Sell Candles: Volume, Buuy Voluem, Sell Volume, % Buys orders >$50k, % sell orders >$50k
  • Social Candles: Twitter traffic, Reddit Traffic, Proprietary sentiment score
  • PRI (Price Relevant Indicator)/Dominance:  Market and sector dominance
  • Screener API: Single metric for all tracked assets across CMF or an individual exchange.

Candles are provided in 1m, 5m, 15m,1h,4h & 1d lengths

The next release of Vantage Signals will further simply tis configuration by only taking the users API key for input and then reporting to the user, the data they have access to.

We are working to bring additional unique and powerful datasets to the platform. Users will be able to add the API key for any additional third-party providers data sets in the same fashion as outlined in this video.

Configuring an inbound webhook on Vantage Signals

Go back to Vantage Signals User Manual

The Vantage Signals inbound webhook channel can accept webhooks from any platform and then use the alerts from those webhooks to work with other indicators on our platform or on their own and take action accordingly.

This video walks users through creating an inbound webhook channel and uses tradingview as an example for sending alerts to our platform. Tradingview is the most common but Vantage Signals can actually receive webhook alerts from any platform in any format. Users can easily assign filters to look for specific words or phrases to signal or take action.  Inbound webhooks can be used in 2 locations on the Vantage Signals platform.

  • As an indicator in an algorithm (And executed through a strategy)
  • As a trigger for action in the Webhook (Individual or dynamic asset asociation)

Another feature that is not shown in this video but coming soon, users can review logs of incoming webhooks to see their content and format for troubleshooting any issues with receiving webhooks or using the right keywords and format for filtering the contents.

There is no other platform that makes using webhook alerts as easy as the webhook trading terminal does on Vantage Signals.

The first video above explains the process of adding a webhook alert, we use Tradingview alerts as an example. In the next video we cover using the webhook channel you create from the video  in a webhook indicator (Old interface)

The last video demonstrates how to use an incoming webhook to signal trades in the webhook trading terminal.

How do you configure an algorithm on Vantage Signals?

Go back to Vantage Signals User Manual

 This video will explain how to configure an algorithm on the Vantage Signals platform. Algorithms are constantly testing the market for the conditions you have specified and will take the action you have specified if your criteria is met.

 The algorithm is composed of a set of unique indicators and some common core configurations that ties them all together. When all the configured criteria’s match up, a signal/alert is sent to the configured social outputs or to a strategy where additional rules can be placed on the execution of the algorithm and where multiple algorithms can work together in an orchestrated fashion.

 Our algorithm engine also makes it easy to back test any algorithm or push it to our brute force back testing engine and test an array of ranges of configurations in a single test up to millions of combinations. See our video about the Algo-Finder to learn more.

There are two sections to configure. Below  we briefly sumamrize the fields and their configuration. We recommend you watch the video to get a more detailed run down of all the fields.

  • Name: Name it what ever you want
  • Market: Global, Derivatives or any of the exchanges we support on CoinMarketFlow.com
  • Asset: The asset or assets you want to track
  • Tracker Intervals (1,2 & 3): Optional, each one specifies (In minutes) when we should validate the signals reliability and average gains which we report in post performance reports and as part of the validation metrics we report with each signal/alert.
  • Averaging: Specifies how many days we should use for calculating your average performance metrics for this algorithm. This should be dependent on your trading strategy, aggressive trading would report more accurately with a 3-7 day average where longer term strategies may want a 30-90 day averaging.
  • Bull  Cooldown: Specifies how long (in minutes) after this algorithm successfully sends a signal before it can do so again. Currently limited to a minimum of your longest Tracking Interval
  • Bull Threshold: Instead of firing a signal as soon as all your conditions match, require them to match this many times in a row to send  any signals out.
  • Interval: Specifies how frequently we should check the market to see if the market conditions this algorithm is looking for are present. There is no need to poll  more aggressively than your shortest candle. In the case of metric indicators, they are by the minute.
  • Discord, Telegram, Twitter channels: Choose the channel(s) you want to send your alerts to. See section for configuring social signaling.
  • Algorithm Dependency: Do not allow this algorithm to signal unless another algorithm is also currently signaling or has signaled within a timeframe you specify. See explainer video for configuring Algorithm dependencies.

Once you have configured the core tab, all that is needed to start your real-time algorithm running is to define and configure your indicators. We have an entire section of the user guide dedicated to Configuring Indicators on Vantage Signals

After you have configured and saved your algorithm, two new tabs will show up, the back-test tab and the logs tab. The back-test engine for a single algorithm is covered in its own FAQ. The logs provide users with a log for operational outputs, real time signal logging and reporting as well as similar logs for the back test engine and performance logs for each signal and overall test performance.

How do you configure market profiles for a strategy on Vantage Signals?

Go back to Vantage Signals User Manual

These two videos cover the configuration and application of market conditions and market profiles within a strategy. We also have a tool specifically for building market profiles which is covered in another explainer. The video above covers the core concept of market condition based profiles and associating algorithms to market profiles. The video below covers configuring best signal and any signal market profiles

The value of the market profiles is that they give users the ability to specify an array of algorithms in a single strategy and then use the best algoritm to signal and that best algorithm is definable in numerous ways.

  • Market Conditions: Only use an algorithms signals if the market conditions are similar to conditions it performs best in. Ex: Users could have a bull, bear and sideways algorithm, each automatically used when we have the market condition each algo was designed for.
  • Best Signal: We have a complex algorithm to assess which algorithm is performing best. The algo validates reliability, gains, total gains, avg gains and avg loss to assess which running algorithm is currently performing best and we will use that Algorithms signals.
  • Any Signal: We can specify that we will listen for signals from any of the configured algorithms. We also have the ability to use platform organic metrics set minimum reliability and gains to only use signals of which their algorithms are currently performing to a minimum level.

These mechanisms give users the ability to create dynamic strategies that adapt based on market performance or underlying algorithm performance. Below is a video that covers using best signal and any signal market profiles on Vantage Signals.

Below are a couple of screenshots the current interface for configuring Market Profiles with a few details, however, we recommend you watch the two videos above for a more complete picture of how this feature works.

  • Cycle and Threshold specify how aggressively we should poll the exchange value when chasing a an entry or exit with a Trading Stop Buy(TSB) or Trailing Stop Loss (TSL)  or Stop Loss (SL) and Stop Buy (SB). The threshold says we need to see the price break TSB/TSL/SL/SB criteria for this many cycles. The above configuration will check the exchange every 15 seconds and fire the firs time it sees a criteria met.
  • Users can define separate entry/exit signals stop buy and stop loss settings for each market condition defined.
  • Users can define a bull entry and bear exit signal for their strategy or vice versa if this is entering the market short.
    • An entry signal/algo is required however a user is not required to have an exit signal/algo and can choose to simply exit on SL/TSL alone.
  • Users can set fill or kill requirements for entering a trade, if we don't see TSB/SB criteria pass within this timeframe, we kill the entry and wait for a new signal to try to enter again
  • Stop Buy and TSB (SB/TSB) specify a percent that the asset needs to either go up to trigger a buy or an amount it needs to come up from its lowest point to enter a trade.
  • Stop Loss and Trailing Stop Loss (SL/TSL) work to limit your losses and maximize your gains. Using a SL will cause you to bail on a trade if it losses this amount, preventing you frm incurring more losses on a bad trade. The TSL has two values, the first that says how much this asset needs to go up to trigger this, the next value states that once the asset goes up by the trigger amount, we should sell if it losses this % but we track the highest price incurred and sell the asset at that % from the highest price incurred.  For example a 6/-4 SL/TSL would require the asset to go up  at least 6% to trigger, then if it wen up 12% and pulled back 4%, we would sell and lock in 8% gains

The above assigns signals and trading configurations for each market condition but we also need to define those market conditions. Below is a capture of the market profiling engine built into Vantage Signals Strategies.

  • Choose from any 3 profile types, Any Signal, Best Signal or Market condition based profiles
  • Passing conditions required to trade will prevent the system from using an algorithm solely based on it being the lowest priority (1). Without this checked, if all algorithms fail their checks, we would use the algortithm with the lowest priority set.
  • Name each market condition as the users please.
  • Choose what market we should be using when evaluating this criteria, Global, Derivatives or a direct exchange.
  • Priority helps to choose which algorithms signals we should use when there is a tie or both algorithms pass their criteria.
  • Market condition profiles can set an arrange of criteria from price, volume, orderbook, volatility and market dominance to reliability, gains and  consecutive.
  • Users can add and remove market conditions to any profile. We recommend running the market profiler for this asset during a timeframe this algo performend well to assist in defining market profiles ideal for trading this asset.

Watch the videos for a lot more details not covered in this short text outline.

How to configure an indicator on Vantage Signals

 

 

Go back to Vantage Signals User Manual

Skip to Metric Indicators
Skip to Technical Indicators
Skip to Crossover Indicators
Skip to Webhook Indicators
Skip to LOA Indicator

The Vantage Signals platform has several types of indicators and each type of indicator has their own configurations and features. Users can use multiple indicators such as tracking Stoch RSI, price, MACD and a crossover all in a single indicator for example.

Trying to assess what is the right indicators to use together and how they should be configured can take a bit of testing. We enable users to back test a single combination, make adjustments and test again as most platform do but we felt this wasn’t enough. We have also built the Algo-Finder, a brute force back testing engine for testing 1000's or even millions of combinations. The Algo-Finder has the same configurations for each indicator as found under individual indicators with the exception that each field can have multiple selections and multiple ranges of values. For example a user could test RSI for order books on a 15m, 1h and 4h candle and include 2.5%, 5% and 10% depth of market values and test for the asset to drop below 30, 20 or 10 and back over to trigger an alert. The Algo finder will generate every possible combination between all the indicators configured and then test each one.

We do not deep dive the Algo-Finder in this article, it is only important to understand that if you can configure an indicator in an algorithm, you can also configure an indicator in an algo-finder, we will briefly touch on this at the end of this article.

Indicators are broken up into 5 major categories

  • Metric Indicators  |  Raw metric comparison with simple moving average
  • TA Indicators | Candle analysis using an array of Technical Indicators
  • Crossover Indicators | Track crossovers on an array of like metrics and TA outputs
  • Webhook Indicators | Import any webhook as an indicator such as Trading View Webhook alerts
  • Large Order Alerts (LOA)

Metric Indicators

There are an array of raw metrics that can be alerted on with basic metric indicators. Users can look for absolute values to cross thresholds or they can look for a % change in value over a period of time. The following metrics can be tested using metric indicators.

  • Price
  • (Combined) Order books
  • Volume
  • % of sell volume <$100
  • % of sell volume >$100 but < $50k
  • % of sell volume >$50k
  • % of buy volume <$100
  • % of buy volume >$100 but < $50k
  • % of buy volume >$50k
  • % of 24hr sell volume witnessed in the last hour
  • % of 24hr sell volume witnessed more than an hour ago, less than 6 hours ago
  • % of 24hr sell volume witnessed more than 6 hours ago, less than 24 hours ago
  • (Combined) Bids
  • (Combined) Asks
  • xAsks (Executed Asks/Buys volume)
  • xBids (Executed Bids/Sell volume)
  • Market Depth Ratio (MDR)
  • Order Flow Ratio (OFR)
  • Price Relative Index (PRI / Global or Sector Market Dominance)

All of the Metric Indicators are configured with the same fashion. There are some exceptions when configuring order book related metrics where as users must specify a market depth.Below we provide a capture of the standard interface for regular metric indicators. At the time of this publication, we do not have an explainer function for this configuration.

  • Select what metric you would like to use as an indicator, we use combined bids in the example
  • Configure an operater: <,>,<=,=> options let you specify if you want to see these metrics go up or down
  • Value specified, this can either be an absolute value or a % change. If the evaluation type is set to absolute value then we would signal if the actual value of this metric goes above or below a certain number. If the evaluation type is Percent Change, then we will signal if the value changes this percent within the timeframe specified.
  • Evalutation Type: Choose from absolute value or percent change, functions as outlined above
  • Trend Length: This is only vidible if users select the Percent change evaluation type. The trend-length is specified in minutes and represents how far back in the past we should compare the current value to see if we have exceeded the threshold value specified. For example if this is configured for 60 minutes and with a value of 10, and an operator of =>, this indicaor would require the combined bids to increase by 10% compared to its value 1 hour prior to flag an alert.
  • The average field allows users to specify in hours, the averaging cycle they want to use for this metric, this is a SMA. Many values would not use averaging  however all order book and order flow data is very volatile and needs some type of smoothing to be able to effectivley signal on them. We recommend 1-24 hours averaging when using order book and order flow metrics.
  • Market depth: This field is only present when selecting an order book based metric such as asks/bids, orderbooks and MDR. Users must specify what depth of market they want to evaluate, 1%, 2.5%,  5%, 10% or 100%. To see these values charted, see https://coinmarketflow.com

 

TA Indicators

We provide an array of TA indicators which users have an array of options on how they want to configure them with the ability to run multiple options and spreads of values through our Algo-Finder brute force back testing engine. Not only can users change an array of configurations for how the TA Indicator calulates and tests each metric, users can base these indicators on price, volume, orderbooks, orderflow and more. We enable the deep dive of metrics beyond price in a way never explored before.  We will continue to add additional indicators over time. Here is the break down of the indicators we offer by type as well as links to helpful videos that explain the indicaors and how to configure them.

Overlap Indicators
  • Bollinger Bands
  • Parabolic SAR
  • EMA
  • SMA
Momentum Indicators
  • Relative Strtength Index (RSI)
  • Stochastic RSI (Stoch)
  • Moving Average Convergence & Divergence (MACD)
  • Money Flow Index (MFI)
  • Average Directional Movement Index (ADX)
  • Aroon
Volume Indicators
  • On Balance Volume (OBV)
Pattern Recognition
  • Library of Candle Patterns
Statistic Inidcators
  • Volatility

While some of these indicators are configured similarly, most of them have their own exceptions. Instead of filling this section up with a wall of text for each indicator, we provide short explainer videos for configuring each one. In our videos, we also show the indicator on the charts and further explain its usage in conjunction to guidance on how to configure the indicators. Below is a list of currently available explainer videos for TA Indicators.

Crossover Indicators

  • EMA/SMA
  • TA Crossover | Stoch fast/slow
  • Aroon | High/Low
  • MFI MFI/MFI

Webhook Indicators

Webhook indicators enable users to receive a webhook from any source and use it as an indicator. If the webhook indicator is the only indicator in your Algo or Strategy then once we receive an alert from your webhook, the algo will fire off and we will start tracking its performance. In the case we are using the webhook indicator alongside other indicators, an algo will require all the indicators in the algorithm to pass before sending a flag to take action and tracking performance. The most common integration is Tradign View Alerts, we will focus on using Trading View Webhooks as indicators in this tutorial, however, our webhooks are not limited to receiving inputs from Tradingview Alone, any platform sending webhooks can be used.

Explainer Video | Configuring an inbound Webhook Channel (TV)

Explainer Video | Configuring a Webhook Indicator

The process to use webhook indicators is to configure an inbound web hook channel any inbound webhooks you would like to receive and then assign that webhook channel to an indicator, a simple two step process.

Creating an inbound webhook channel

  • Select channels
  • Select Webhooks
  • Create a new inbound webhook
  • Copy the URL provided by Vantage Signals, this is what you will paste on the sending side so they know where to send the webhooks

Once you have generate a webhook adress, we can easily use it to configure Trading View or other Webhook enabled apps.

  • Choose one time or re-occuring depending on if you want this alert to trigger every time the  condition is met or only the first time
  • Select Webhook URL and paste the Webhook URL provided from the Vantage Signals webhook channel you created prior
  • Enter a distinct message for this alert, we will look for this message when we receive the alert and signal if we see this specific message. This enables us to use one webhook for all the alerts coming from a single platform.

After the webhook sender is configured, we can now configure an indicator to receive this webhook.

  • Open an existing algorithm or create a new one
  • Add an indicator, choose webhook indicator
  • Select the Webhook Channel to monitor, you created this in the first step
  • Enter a filter to lok for, this should match the words you are sending in the alert you are looking for.
  • Enter an expiration. This is only needed if you have multiple indicators defined. The expiration/keepalive says that once we receive an alert on this webhook, we should keep it active for this long to give the other indicators this much time to also match their criteria and fire off. Without this, a webhook alert would come in and unless all your other indicators also matched at that exact moment, the algo would not fire.
  • Webhook indicators are not available in the Algo-Finder
  • Single back testing in an algo with prior received webhooks is a planned future feature

How to configure a strategies on Vantage Signals?

 

Return to Vantage Signals User Guide

Vantage Signals strategies is where you bring your hard work building algorithms into action. We offer an array of strategy types, Automated Strategies, Manual Strategies, Webhook Strategies and Dynamic Asset Strategies. Our multi-algorithm automated strategy engine is more flexible than anything you have ever seen before. The ability to use the outputs from a strategy to report to one or many social media outlets and any format of webhooks makes it almost like a Hootsuite for signal providers. Below we outline a little bit about each engine type before exploring each of them independently.

Manual Strategies:
Instead of manually executing on whatever webhook enabled automated trading platform or directly posting trade signals to all your social trading groups, we enable you to enter your manual trades here. The terminal is a simple market entry/exit terminal. Users have the ability to use market or set limit orders for entry and exit. Users can optionally include simple risk mitigation and gains optimization with Stop Buy(SB)/Trailing Stop Buy(TSB) entry and Stop Loss(SL) or Trailing Stop Loss(TSL) exit to optimize entry and exit signals. This strategy type relies on the user manually clicking execute to start the process and send all the messages to the desired locations. Similar to our automated strategies, we monitor the reliability and performance of each manual strategies combined performance and report them to your social channels with the initial alert. The signal validation services inform consumers of the signal how well you have been performing with your manually sourced trading signals. Check out the quick explainer video to visualize and learn more bout using manual strategies on Vantage Signals.

See the Explainer Video: Vantage Signals | Strategies | Configuring Manual Strategies

Webhook Strategies:
The platform supports the ability to use webhooks as indicators in algorithms, alone or alongside other indicators. Algorithms send their alerts to strategies for strategies to decide what to do with it. This is a lot of process if all a user needs is a single simple webhook execution of a strategy. For example, users could take their webhooks directly from Tradingview for trendline trading and select them directly in a strategy for quick and easy integration of Trading view or any webhook enabled platform. The WebHook strategy also implements similar SB/TSB, SL/TSL risk mitigation and gains maximizing features. Similar to all strategies, we provide signal validation and provide performance reports on signal and enable users to use or send the outputs to an array of social outlets for trading group management, signal group management and similar purposes. Check out the explainer video for a fast walk through on using Webhook Strategies.

See the Explainer Video: Vantage Signals | Strategies | Configuring Webhook Strategies

Automated Strategies
This is by far the most advanced strategy and incorporates using not just one but multiple algorithms to signal with a broad array of ways to determine how to interpret those signals coming from the various algorithms. Users can define multiple algorithms and then the strategy can choose which flags should be used or not based on the current market conditions or the attributes of the algorithms signals themselves. We leverage platform organic metrics from our reliability, gains and risk metrics to enable users to signal using whichever algorithm is performing best and can prevent any algorithm from signaling if it does not meet at least a minimum risk and performance level. As with all our strategies, users can send alerts to an array of social media outlets or external webhooks simultaneously on alert. We also offer the same gains maximizer and loss minimizer services with SB/TSB and SL/TSL. There is a lot going in automated strategies, we recommend you watch the explainer video for configuring automated strategies to get a better idea for how everything works and to visually associate the information to its corresponding interface.


See the Explainer Video: Vantage Signals | Strategies | Configuring Automated Strategies


Dynamic-Asset Strategies
The dynamic-asset strategies work with screener services to scan an array of assets for user specified filters and then either directly alert on them or use this alert to dynamically populate an algorithm that will in turn, automatically configure its associated strategy to process and take action on the asset that passes from the algorithm to the strategy. We will post more about this feature as it gets closer to going live.

How to configure an Algo-Finder on Vantage Signals

Return to the Vantage Signals user guide

In this video we cover configuring an automated strategy on Vantage Signals. Leverage our brute force algo-finder to find optimal algorithms for trading an asset and then tie them all together into a single strategy using our automated strategies. We offer an array of market profiling to further customize your strategy.

Strategies can decide on which of multiple algorithm signals to use based on current market conditions or recent performance and reliability of the underlying algorithms. We are taking a new, advanced and flexible approach to multi-algorithm, market aware, self-healing, automated strategies.

We can also enhance signal entry and exit by adding stop buy, trailing stop buy, stop loss and trailing stop loss to optimize your entry and reduce risk. There is no other platform that opens the door to technical analysis like Vantage Signals!

Below we cover, at a high level, how to configure and use the Algo-Finder to create and launch large batch jobs of algorithm configurations.

Create a new Algo-Finder

  • When creating a new Algo-Finder, notice users can  choose from the bull or bear tab. When searching for market pullbacks and short signals, users should create bear algo-finders. For long positions and market advances, users should create a bull algo-finder
  • Click on the + to create a new Algo-Finder

When we first open an Algo finder, we are presented with the core configuration page. These are configurations common to all of the indicator combinations. Below is a screenshoot along with details about each of the fields.

Algo-Finder Core Configuration

  • Name this template whatever you want, this is for your reference
  • Choose one or more markets such as global, derivatives or a specific exchange
  • Choose one of more assets to back test. Each market/asset will spawn a separate Algo-Finder Instance
  • Tracking intervals: is for qualifying how well each signal performed from each algorithm configuration.
    • Users can configure 0-3 Tracking Intervals and we will folow up this many minutes after each signal to assess how well the signal has performed. We track reliability and gains performance for each signal and provide rolled up performance reports for all combined signals for each algorithm combination tested. For example, a short term algorithm might report the signals performance 1, 2 and 3 hours after the signal where  a long term algorithm may test 12 hours, 24 hours or 72 hours after each signal fires. The TI intervals are  specified in minutes to 1 day would be 1440 minutes.
  • The Bull or Bear Cooldown: This specifies that we should not send back to back signals, after we register a signal, we must cooldown this  long before we can register another signal. This keeps passing market conditions from sending a signal every single interval being tested.
    • The cooldown cannot be shorter than your longest TI period. We required completed assessment of the last entry prior to starting to track a new entry. Multiple values can be used with a comma delimited format such as 120, 360 which would provide a two hour and a 6 hour cooldown.
  • Threshold states that all the indicators in the algorithm need to pass this many times in a row before we send a signal. This prevents us from sending signals on a market condition that only briefly exists. Using a threshold of 1 would state the first time all criteria match, immediately send an alert. This is defined in minutes. We can specify a range of thresholds.
    • The step value says what value we should step through the range specified. For example, 1-10 with a step of 1 would check 1,2,3,4,5,6 and so on. Using values of 1-10 with a step value of 2 would check 1,3,5,7,9.
    • There is no value in having a threshold shorter than your interval or else you will just test the same values since we couldnt have new values any faster than once per interval. 
  • The Intelligent intervals check box will automatically update the interval we use based on the shortest candle length in an algo. Depending on how many different candle lengths you are using across your indicators, this could save users up to 50% of the time it takes to process their algo-finder by using intelligent intervals.
    • There is no need to test every 5 minutes if we are testing 1 hour candles that would provide the same value for at least 19 polling cycles using 5 minute intervals, so we auto use 1 hour intervals to remove redundant testing.
  • The bottom  section provides an option to configure a dependency signal. None of the algoritms being tested would be permitted to signal unless this dependency signal either is or isnt sending a flag or has sent one in the last x number of minutes. This is covered in its own article and explainer.

Once we have completed configuring the core tab, we can move on to the indicator tab.

We recommend reviewing the guidance for configuring various indicators in the indicators section of the Vantage Signals Userguide.

  • We use RSA as an example here but its the same mechanics for all indicators.
  • User can select multiple operators, all blue bubbles indicate how many options have been selected under each multi option selection.
  • Users can enter stepped value where user enters a starting value, an ending value and then the step value says how big of steps we should take to get from the low value to the high value.
    • A step of 1 would have us check every full value. In the example above -3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3. Had we used a step value of 2 it would have tested every 2 such as -3, -1, 1, 3. We also could have step partial values such as half percents where we would have checked -3,-2.5,-2,-1.5, etc.
  • In conjunction to using a stepped value range, or instead of using a stepped value range, we can just enter a comma delimited list. If we configure both, we will test both ranges. Users shoudl take care not to duplicate values in these two sections.
    • The example above would test -10,-5,-3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3,5,10 (NOTE: there are not negative RSI values but using this with percent change could look for RSI to fall a percent))
  • Users can choose to test an absolute value or a percent change. With RSI we probably want to look for this value to go below 10, 20 or 30 or something like this, so we would look for an absolute value of 10, 20 or 30. Additionally with all indicators, we can change this from looking for an absolute value to looking for a percentage of change over a period of time. If percent change is selected, users can specify multiple comma delimited values for how far back (In minutes) we should compare the current value to look for this percent change.
    • For example we could look for a 5% change (or any of the criteria values outlined above) in RSI over the last hour, or last 3 hours or last day and test this against all the possible combinations configured.
  • Users can choose whatever metric they want to perform TA on, this doesnt have to be just price action, we can perform TA on volume, orderbooks, orderflow, market domination, social sentiment and more.
  • Uses can choose one or more points in the OHLC(SA) candle to analyze
  • Users can select one or more candle lengths to test from 5m, 15m, 1h, 4h & 1d candles.
  • Periods defines the number of candles we should analyze with this indicator to produce a single value. For example, SMA with 24 periods using 1 hour candles would provide us a 24 hour simple moving average.
    • The more periods the slower the indicator responds, the less periods, the more responsive the indicator is.
  • Some metrics allow us to send a flag not when we cross the line but when we cross back over it
  • Expiration  will keep this signal alive for this many candle lengths before considering it having passed. This can be important when you have multiple indicators.
    • With the example above, 3 candle lengths would be a 15 minute duration with 5 minute candle tests and a 3 hour window for 1 hour candle tests. For example, a user may want to set an expriation on a crossover and then give 30 minutes for us to also receive an alert on price and volume both moving  within

After configuring the indicators and ranges desired for testing, all we need to do now is set one or more scopes of dates that we would like test. We have an updated interface already and will have a new article dedicated to Algo-Finder scoping like this one but for now this video covers configuring the back test dates and scopes in detail with the exception the new interface is cleaner and more modular.

Exchanges have their own listing policy and do not guarantee the Crypto-assets liquidity. VantageCrypto does make an effort to focus our data and analytics on more liquid “trading grade assets” however, VantageCrypto shall not be held liable for difficulties to sell or acquire Crypto-assets on exchanges.

Trading Signal resell and marketplace
VantageCrypto hosts a decentralized Marketplace that allows contact to be made between Users in order to make Creators able to rent their strategy signals. This article shall apply only to the relations between Creators and Consumers/Lessees in the context of the renting of a strategy signal. Using a Strategy built by a Creator is subject to the unconditional acceptance and respect of these Terms and Conditions (hereinafter, « Terms ») and specifically, other users using other platforms other than those provided by or approved by VantageCrypto have the ability to publish one or more strategy signals to the marketplace. VantageCrypto will provide signal validation services for reporting on signal performance but the creator is not under obligation to use signal validation and the signal validation itself, while tracking prior performance, provides no guarantee of future performance. The acceptance criteria for a marketplace transaction are specified in the creator and agreed to by the consumer on consumption. VantageCrypto brings to the attention of users, especially French residents (And other countries citizens as applicable by local laws) Creators, that present oneself as a Consumer while acting within the framework of a regular or usual professional activity may be considered as a misleading commercial practice that could be severely punished.

The use of the Strategy signal offered by a Creator is subject to the acceptance by the Lessee of the present terms and the specific contractual conditions determined by the Creator, namely, the Creator provided details and the rental fees defined by the Creator. In return for the use of its Strategy signal, the Creator receives a remuneration that he defines previously.

The Strategies that are the most used or the best rated are highlighted in a dedicated part of the marketplace. VantageCrypto reserves the right to put forward, in a dedicated section, certain Strategies on a discretionary basis. Strategies offered by Creator can be removed from VantageCrypto marketplace at the discretion of VantageCrypto. Because the marketplace is decentralized, the strategy signals may still be available through other signal marketplaces on the Ocean Protocol network.

Lessees are free to evaluate the strategies offered by the Creators. VantageCrypto does not control the content of the reviews published by the Users concerning the Strategies offered by the Creators. VantageCrypto may provide signal validation services to the creator as a service to their consumers. Vantagecrypto, this is an automated process and an optional service of which Creator and Consumer agree VantageCrypto will not be held liable for any loss of income to Creators from negative reporting or loss of trading equity by Consumers using these past performance metrics to assess risk in future transactions. Creator and Consumer agree not to hold or attempt to hold VantageCrypto liable for loss as a results of the creation, selling, or consuming of strategy signals produced or consumed by our platform.

VantageCrypto brings attention to the Creators that receiving compensation in return for the use of their Strategy signals is likely to constitute an income subject to tax and social contributions. It is the Creators sole responsibility to declare the income from the rent of their Strategy signals to the Tax Administration and the Social Security Administration.

Configuring an outbound webhook on Vantage Signals

This feature makes the Vantage Signals platform usable to trade on virtually any crypto exchange that at least has one or more automated trading platforms integrated with it.

This video walks users through creating an outbound webhook channel for using singals from algorithms, strategies, manual trading terminal, webhook trading terminal or screener trader usable on any platform that supports inbound webhooks. 

There is no other platform that makes using someone else platform to execute this easy. Most platforms do what they can to force users to use them as a one stop shop, Vantage Signals is built with flexibility so that users can use the platform in a way that best suites their needs, even if that means that another platform is used for some or the bulk of services the user would like to use.

Using the Manual Trading Terminal

Go back to Vantage Signals User Manual

Vantage Signals offers a simple interface for entering and tracking multiple manual trades in a simple, fast and easy to use interface. The manual trading terminal can be used to send trade triggers to any automated trading platform that supports inbound webhooks, for signalling to social trading groups or direct trading with select exchanges.

Enter in one or more manual trades across multiple exchanges or trading platforms, from a single interface. Supporting limit or market orders, long or short, we also offer advanced trade helpers to minimize risk and maximize gains on each trade. Our trade helpers provide tools that exchanges dont offer but should such as:

-Stop Buy (Confirm a run before entering)
-Trailing Stop Buy (Wait until after a pull back before entering)
-Stop Loss (Accept a small loss on a bad trade instead of holding it for massive losses)
-Trailing Stop Loss (Dont exit a trade while its still going up, wait for it to pull back from its highs)

Using the Webhook Trading Terminal

Go back to Vantage Signals User Manual

The Webhook trading Terminal on Vantage Signals might be one of the simplest easiest to use webhook trading terminals in the industry. After creating an inbound webhook and setting it up on the distant end platform for alerting, such as Tradingview, users can enter simple plain english words or phrases to enter or exit a trade. No programming necesary, no complex interface. The most complicated component of the webhook terminal is the trade helpers, designed to help maximize gains and minimize risk but of which are not necessary to use in order to successfully trade using the webhook trading terminal.

Simply identify what you want to trade, how you want to trade it and how much you want to trade and then the words we should look for in a webhook alert in order to enter or exit a trade. Below is a screenshot of the interface.

 

Users can also send alerts from the webhook trader to other platforms that accpet webhooks or to an array of social media. 

Vantage Signals is also working to bring support for dynamic Webhook trading where as users do not need to specify an asset at all, instead we will parse the inbound message and find the asset and create a trade for that asset provided the entry and exit filter are also present in the message. This will enable users to use things such as Tradingvirew screeners to send alerts for a large array of assets through a single webhook and then open and close trades on any of those assets dynamically.

Using the Screener Trading Terminal

Go back to Vantage Signals User Manual

This is power! With a single interface, parse all the trading grade assets on major exchanges looking for your criteria to be matched. A single screener could track over 300 assets on Binance Global and enter a trade or send an alert based on criteria you set. What a great tool for momentum trading or scalping. There is no reason to setup 300 separate algorithms when you can do it all in one.

The screener trader uses simple metric comparisons and does not use complex TA so users cannot use metrics like RSI, Aroon & MFI or other such indicators available in our algorithms engine. That doesnt mean the screener is limited. Users can parse price, volume, order books, order flow, large orders, order book rations, executed order ratios and social sentiment looking for % changes or absolute values.

The interface is super simple, users can configure a new screener trader in a few minutes. We highly recommend users use paper wallets to start until they have a proven strategy as this is capable of opening a lot of simultaneous trades so a bad strategy could cause significant losses. In the same fashion, a solid strategy can help users catch every major run that happens across the platform or jump on scalping opportunities across a large basket of assets simultaneously.

The screener trader currently supports screening all global assets on CMF and all trading grade assets across Binance Global, FTX Global and Coinbase. Users can also execute trades on those same exchanges or send their trading data to another platform for execution or to social media in support of a social trading group.

About:
The VantageCrypto API unleashes super powerful, hard to find, advanced market metrics for crypto markets. We offer our data in a modular and transparent fashion. This document will outline how to query and use our API data sets. Note, we focus on trading grade assets and exchanges and harder to find datasets. We also offer all our data in a modular fashion so users can choose what data they want, how much of it they want and how fast they want to be able to access it. Our users only pay for the data they want, how they want it, which enables us to offer our API data at a fraction of the cost of our competition..

Our API is broken up into 3 major types

  • By the minute (BTM) Data: Each raw data call provides up to 60 data points (60 minutes per hour). We send the hour of which the timestamp your query falls.
    • Querying without a timestamp will query the current hour (Or as many minutes that has passed this hour)
  • Candles:
    • Price OHLC candles
    • Volume/Buys/Sells (VBS) candles including % institutional participation
    • Order Book (OB) candles with 5 depth of markets
    • Social Sentiment candles with Twitter, Reddit and Overall Sentiment
  • Screener API calls (Watch hundres of assets at once in a single call)
    • Price and volume screener: 1 call with 1 minute of price or volume data for each asset in the market queried
    • Order Book Screener:  1 call with 1 minute of combined bids or asks at 1%, 2.5%, 5%, 10% or 100% depth of market for each asset in the market queried
    • OrderFlow Screener: 1 call with 1 minute of xbids(sells), xasks(buys) and % buy or sell orders that were over $50kUSD in size for each asset in the market queried
    • Social Screener: 1 call with 1 minute of social data for each asset in the market being polled for the minute polled. Twitter and reddit traffic or in house sentiment score. (< 50 assets tracked)

Candle calls are served in the following durations for which your timestamp falls. Querying without a timestamp will query the current candle.

  • 5min Candles: 288 candles providing one day of candles per call
  • 15min Candles: 96 candles providing one day of data per call
  • 1hr Candles: 24 candles providing one day of data per call
  • 4hr Candles: 42 candles providing one week of data per call
  • 1d Candles: 28-31 candles providing one month of data per call

Each data set provides different data in their candles but they all adhere to the structure above.

Our data resolution for all metrics is 1 minute with the exception of social data which may be up to 15 minutes delayed. All of our candles are calculated using 1 minute intervals. For example, each day of data will provide or be calculated on 1440 data points per day.

Our data can also be viewed online @ https://coinmarketflow.com

By using our API you agree to all the terms laid out in the VantageCrypto User Agreement and reference API agreement.

                                    URL/Version/Duration/Market/Asset/Data/Sub-Data/Timestamp?api_key=

Duration Branch Selection
The primary branch specifies the version of API you are accessing, the second branch identifies the amount of historical data you have access to. This directly correlates to the duration you purchased on with your API subscription which can be viewed by returning to  the subscription page and scrolling to the bottom.

  •  APIv3:
    • 7 days (7d) (This can only be used on Screener calls)
    • 30 days (30d)
    • 90 days (90d)
    • 1 year (1y)
    • 2 years (2y)

You can query the real-time values for the current hour or candle from any API call by simply omitting the timestamp from the end of your query. When querying historical data, you cannot query any data that is older than the duration of the branch you are querying. If you try to query data from 91 days ago using a /90d duration, you will receive an error.

Market Branch Selection

Query available Markets: Users of our API are able to list available markets of which can be queried by using the following open API call.

Once the API user has identified the market they would like to use, they can populate the API %market% branch https://api.vantagecrypto.com/v3/90d/%Market%

We offer an array of combined and individual markets. Our individual markets include combined markets for each underlying exchange and as well combined markets by region or stats on all crypto stats for the underlying asset combined from a global market reference. Using global markets and other combined markets will offer a greater validation of data and less prone to wicking on price queries due to single exchange transaction slippage due to limited liquidity.

Asset Branch Selection
In  order to know which assets are available to query here, we can run a similar command as we perform to query markets looking for the specific assets supported by the market we have specified in our API call.

Query available Assets within  a market: Users of our API are able to list available assets of which can be queried by using the following open API call.

curl https://api.vantagecrypto.com/v2/list/global/assets?api_key=

Notice when we query assets for global markets, we also see a "global" asset. The global asset is the combined value of all assets across all exchanges we track. For example with this, users can track the overall market volume, orderbooks, value and more.

APIv3 by the minute data (BTM)

Now that we have built out our API query to include the API branch, the  duration of our subscription, the market and the asset we want to query, now we need to specify what data we want for this asset/market.

Our by the minute calls are broken down into 6 major categories:

  • Order Books
  • Order Flow
  • Price
  • Volume
  • Derivatives
  • PRI (Market/Sector Dominance)

BTM Orderbook API calls

Each of our orderbook API calls start by identifying which depth of market the user wants to query. We offer the following depths of market.

  • 1% Depth of Market
  • 2.5% Depth of Market
  • 5% Depth of Market
  • 10% Depth of Market
  • 100% Depth of Market

Subsequently users can combine the queried values and create the following values also shown on CoinMarketFlow

  • Books (Combined orderbooks)
  • MDR (Market Depth Ratio)

* NOTE: Order books can fluctuate quite a bit making most of the data difficult to find signals and trends in without some kind of smoothing technique. The lower the depth of market, the more volatile the order books tend to be. On our CoinMarketFlow website we visualize the order book data with either real-time, 3 hour moving averages or 24 hour moving averages. There is value in moving averages of 72hours and possibly longer for different trading techniques. Our API order book candles provide average valuess for the candle length so the longer the length, the more normalized it will be. We recommend you smooth OB values using some method of your choice as well.

Below is a table of available order book calls followed by a few examples from orderbook calls outlined in the table

v3 (7d/30d/90d) %market% %asset% 100dom 100asks %timestamp%

Below is output from an orderbook query. Each call will provide 60 values, one for each minute of the hour being queried. All hours start at 0000 GMT. It is best to query one query spaced an hour apart to avoid pulling duplicate data though this may be unavoidable when polling the current time stamp. The first value in each query is for the first minute of the hour queried and the last minute is the final minute of the hour. We also print the date and hour for which we are providing results, see details below.

 This API call retrieves 60 values, one for each minute of the hour queried. The call returns the timezone (UTC), timestamp, date and the specific hour being queried, the asset, the market, the endpoint queried and the associated values in comma delimited format.  We query this by querying the 100dom (100% depth of market) data branch followed by the 100bids (Total bids at 100% market depth) query.

BTM Order Flow API Calls

Our Order flow data offers executed order flow data in a few forms.

  • Executed Orders (xBids/Sells) & (xAsks/Buys)
  • Buy and sell orders by size

Below is a list of all the available calls followed by an example of each type. As with all of our APIv3 raw data feeds, each call returns 60 values for the hour your timestamp queries. Each hour is on the hour starting at 0000UTC.

Version   Branch   Duration   Market   Asset   Type  Endpoint  Timestamp

v3 (7d/30d/90d) %market% %asset% oflow xasks %timestamp%
v3 (7d/30d/90d) %market% %asset% oflow xbids %timestamp%
v3 (7d/30d/90d) %market% %asset% oflow sells-large %timestamp%
v3 (7d/30d/90d) %market% %asset% oflow buys-large %timestamp%

BTM Executed Order Flow

There are two calls related to standard executed order flow.

v3 (7d/30d/90d) %market% %asset% oflow xasks %timestamp%
v3 (7d/30d/90d) %market% %asset% oflow xbids %timestamp%

These calls retrieve executed buys (Previously asks, or "xAsks") and executed sells (Previously bids, or "xbids"). These are sporadic values and are best used with some sort of smoothing method such as moving averages. Note, all values are in USD. We offer 3 hour and 24 hour moving averages of this data available on https://coinmarketflow.com

BTM Order Flow by size

This API call breaks the xbids and xasks down by the size of orders they are composed of. We track all the executed orders and assess what % of all orders wered buys or sells over $50kUSD to identify insttitutional and professional trader participation in the market.

  • Large orders are buy or sell orders: >$50,000

Below is a list of API3 calls for Orderflow by size

  • v3 (30d/90d/1y/2y) %market% %asset% oflow sells-large %timestamp%
  • v3 (30d/90d/1y/2y) %market% %asset% oflow buys-large %timestamp%

This metric outlines what percentage of the executed orders were larger than $50k which we categorize as professional or institutional traders. The outputs are in percentage of all executed buy or sell orders. Users will notice that different assets tend to have very different composure as their general trader base varies. Below is an example of an  APiv3 Orderflow by size output. The output provides by the minute updates for the hour queried.  We are querying Ethereum large orders across all exchanges and markets. The output below indicates that orders over $50k account for 16-18% of all volume for Ethereum during the timeframe queried.

We indicate which timeframe is being captured by designating buy or sell with a 1, 6 or 24  - such as buys6 or sells24. Below we query what percentage of buy orders for Ethereum happened across all global markets and pairs over the last hour. We can see that for the most part, ~2.4%-2.91% of the buy volume for the 24 hours occurred in the last hour. On a run, we would expect to see this number increase quite a bit early on in the run.

BTM Price 

We provide an array of price conversions for all of our assets in raw format, by the minute. We support prices in 14 different currencies and BTC price conversions. As with all of our APIv3 raw data, we provide 60 data points per hour per API call for the hour your timestamp falls in. You should pace your queries 1 hour apart to prevent duplicate responses. Below is a list of the calls and currencies supported followed by an example of one of the calls being used.

v3 (7d/30d/90d) %market% %asset% price usd %timestamp%
v3 (7d/30d/90d) %market% %asset% price btc %timestamp%

Below is a query providing us with 60 x 1 minute intervals of Ethereum price in BTC. Because we are querying the global market, this is the price average across the top exchanges for all trading pairs combined, represented in the currency selected (BTC).  (all combined market averages are "as calculated by VantageCrypto")

BTM Volume

For volume by the minute, we provide 60 calls per hour for the timestamp queried, the same as with all of our raw data API calls. We offer volume in USD or BTC but the underlying values are representative of all trading volume from all pairs and not just for USD or BTC, we are converting all values to USD or BTC for ease in consumption. We also include a 3rd volume/order book metrics call Book To Volume Ratio (BVR) which can be a strong indicator of fake volume. BVR is simply the ratio of orderbooks to volume for this asset on this market. Note, when looking at real time volume, smaller assets often have a lot of minutes with no volume. Use our volume candles for pulling summed volume by candle length.

BTM Market Dominace

The VantageCrypto site and API provides two types of market dominance, one based on global dominance and the other within the sector an asset operates.

  • sPRI: Sector Price Relative Indicator (Sector Dominance)
  • gPRI: Global Price Relative Indicator (Global Market Dominance)

There are two APIv3 calls associated to market dominance along with an open APIv2 query for listing sector indices and members.

v3 (7d/30d/90d) %asset% price spri %sector& %timestamp%
v3 (7d/30d/90d) %asset% price gpri %timestamp%

BTM Sector Indices and members

In order to pull the sector dominance value for an asset, you need to know what sector(s) it is a member of. We provide an open APiv2 call for querying and listing all indices along with their members. This can be used for properly populating the sector when querying sector dominance for an asset. In the excerpt from the call shown below, we can see that to check the sector dominance for STORJ, we would need to query it using the "DISK" index.

curl https://api.vantagecrypto.com/v3/1y/binance/bat/vty/1d/1632960000?api_key=%Your_API_Key%

  alias "disk"
  name "DISK"
  description "Decentralized storage"
  members "maid,sc,storj,blz,btt,lamb,fil,cru"

2

  alias "privacy" <Truncated>....

 

below is an example of making two API calls for XMR/Monero. One call checks XMR's global market dominance and the next checks XMR's dominance within the Privacy sector. As with all our raw data calls, we provide 60 one minute values for the hour the timestamp requested occurred. We can see that XMR only has about a 0.16% global market domination but does dominate the privacy coin sector by almost 50%.

OHLC Price Candles

As outlined in the  beginning of this guidance, we provide OHLC candles in groups per API call. We will provide the full day, week or month of data for the day, week or month your timestamp request falls in and dependent on candle length. For review, the number of candles provided for each call is outlined below.

  • 5min Candles: 288 candles providing 1 day of candles per call starting 0000GMT
  • 15min Candles: 96 candles providing one day of data per call starting 0000GMT
  • 1hr Candles: 24 candles providing one day of data per call starting 0000GMT
  • 4hr Candles: 42 candles providing one week of data for the week your timestamp falls
  • 1d Candles: 28-31 candles providing one month of for the month your timestamp falls

In the not too distant future we will offer OHLC for volume, order books and volume, at the moment we only offer price OHLC data, the available calls are outlined below.

v3 (7d/30d/90d) %market% %asset% ohlc 5m %timestamp%
v3 (7d/30d/90d) %market% %asset% ohlc 15m %timestamp%

OB Candles (Orderbooks)

We will provide the full day, week or month of data for the day, week or month your timestamp request falls in and dependent on candle length. For review, the number of candles provided for each call is outlined below.

  • 5min Candles: 288 candles providing 1 day of candles per call starting 0000GMT
  • 15min Candles: 96 candles providing one day of data per call starting 0000GMT
  • 1hr Candles: 24 candles providing one day of data per call starting 0000GMT
  • 4hr Candles: 42 candles providing one week of data for the week your timestamp falls
  • 1d Candles: 28-31 candles providing one month of for the month your timestamp falls

The format for the queries are the same as they are for our OHLC candles and like our by the minute data, we have separate calls for bids and asks. To use the combined books or MDR data sets, users must pull both bids and asks and perform the calculation locally. Below is a list of order book candles we offer followed by an example.

v3 (30d/90d/1y) %market% %asset% ob bids 5m %timestamp%
v3 (30d/90d/1y) %market% %asset% ob bids 15m %timestamp%

Below we provide an example of an API call for Ethereum total asks across global markets, for today (no timestamp). Notice that each candle value is separated with /'s and each candle is separated with a comma. The OB candles provide the following data in the following order 1%DOM/2.5%DOM/5%DOM.10%DOM,100%DOM bids or asks..

VBS (Volume, Buy, Sell) Candles

We will provide the full day, week or month of data for the day, week or month your timestamp request falls in and dependent on candle length. For review, the number of candles provided for each call is outlined below.

  • 5min Candles: 288 candles providing 1 day of candles per call starting 0000GMT
  • 15min Candles: 96 candles providing one day of data per call starting 0000GMT

  • 1d Candles: 28-31 candles providing one month of for the month your timestamp falls

The format for the queries are the same as they are for our OHLC candles. To use the OFR data sets, users must use both buys and sells values and perform the calculation locally. It is important to take notice that with by the minute data and on coinmarketflow, buys are represented with xAsks and sells with xBids.  Below is a list of VBS candles we offer followed by an example.

v3 (30d/90d/1y) %market% %asset% vbs 5m %timestamp%
v3 (30d/90d/1y) %market% %asset% vbs 15m %timestamp%

Below we provide an example of an API call for Ethereum volume, buys and sells along with institutional activity across global markets, for today (no timestamp). Notice that each candle value is separated with /'s and each candle is separated with a comma. The VBS candles provide the following data in the following order Volume/Buys/Sells/%buys>$50k/%sells>$50k. In the example below, there are no buys or sells trasnactions   over $50k being performed.

Social Candles (Twitter, Reddit, Sentiment)

We will provide the full day, week or month of data for the day, week or month your timestamp request falls in and dependent on candle length. For review, the number of candles provided for each call is outlined below.

  • 5min Candles: 288 candles providing 1 day of candles per call starting 0000GMT

  • 15min Candles: 96 candles providing one day of data per call starting 0000GMT

  • 1hr Candles: 24 candles providing one day of data per call starting 0000GMT

  • 4hr Candles: 42 candles providing one week of data for the week your timestamp falls

  • 1d Candles: 28-31 candles providing one month of for the month your timestamp falls

There are a few important points to note about using social candles:

  • Data in candles may have up to a 15 minute delay

  • We have social candles starting at 5 minutes, we do not offer it by the minute

  • We only maintain social data on a subset of assets (up to 50 assets)

  • Social data only goes back to May 2022

 

In order to query what assets are currently supported for social data, users can query the list function (https://api.vantagecrypto.com/v3/list/social/assets?api_key=)

 

The sentiment score we append to the candle is also subject to modifier multipliers and will be being adjusted for several months before it can be trusted on its own. The sentiment score is a combination of twitter, reddit, order book and price action depicted in a single postive or negative metric.

 

The format for the queries are the same as they are for our OHLC candles. The Social data sets have 3 values: Twitter Traffic, Reddit Traffic, Sentiment score. For twitter we are parsing all tweets, retweets, replies and quotes. For Reddit we are watching all posts and subsequent upvotes for all active posts for up to 3 days. The format for the queries is as follows.

v3 (30d/90d/1y) %market% %asset% vbs 5m %timestamp%
v3 (30d/90d/1y) %market% %asset% vbs 15m %timestamp%
v3 (30d/90d/1y) %market% %asset% vbs 1h %timestamp%
v3 (30d/90d/1y) %market% %asset% vbs 4h %timestamp%
v3 (30d/90d/1y) %market% %asset% vbs 1d %timestamp%

Below we provide an example of an API call for Ethereum social candles. We have queried hour long candles and we can see that Ethereum appears to have about 20,000 to 50,000 tweets per hour during the timeframe captured and around 1700 reddit posts and/or upvotes per hour. Our sentiment scoring shows a declining social sentiment.

Screener API Calls

The screener calls are broken down to like data in each package. The screener only provides from current, up to the last 7 days of data, regardless what duration API key you are using. Omit timestamp to query current minute. Options for screener calls are:

  • Price and Volume (Price or volume for all assets in this market for the minute queried)
  • Order Book (Combined bids or asks at 1%, 2.5%, 5%, 10% or 100% depth of market)
  • Order Flow (xAsks(buys), xBids(sells), % Buys > $50kUSD, % Sells>$50kUSD)
  • Social (Twitter and reddit social activity or combined sentiment score)

Crypto-FAQ's

What is a (reward) halving?

Most Proof of Work (POW) coins such as Bitcoin, Litecoin and many others have pre-defined block heights that they will cut the block reward in half. This means that the amount of new coins being minted daily will be half as much. The reduction in daily production typically is a small portion of daily volume and thus not really significant in the supply and demand arena.

It becomes challenging for miners (Who mint new coins and process transactions) to provide the same services for half the reward. The design expects that transaction activity eventually will provide enough income to pay miners high electricity costs once the block rewards are gone.

A lot of coins follow Bitcoins schedule which results in a halving approximately every 4 years but this absolutely depends on the criteria specified by the developer when they launched the coin.

You can usually find the block height for halving’s on the company/coin ANN page on bitcointalk or on their homepage (Search coin-name ANN). Current Block height can be found on any block explorer for that coin (Search coin-name block explorer). Block height is just the number of blocks it has processed since inception. A block is a block of transactions, a block of transactions is processed on a regular basis so the block height generally retains the same incline/growth so the halving’s are fairly predictable in timing.

What is a block in blockchain?

A block in blockchain is a block of transactions. A block of transactions is processed on a regular basis with the interval dependent on the asset.  Bitcoin for example processes a new block of transactions every 10 minutes. If there isnt enough room on the current block for a transaction, it will sit in a pool and wait for the next block in 10 minutes.  Thanks to the lightning network, most bitcoin transactions can happen in seconds and then are settled on the chain later as the block is processed.

Block height is the number of blocks that have been created to date.

What is the difference between bitcoins?

The original Bitcoin (BTC) is Bitcoin. The code for Bitcoin is open source and 1000's of projects have forked Bitcoin code and did their own thing with it - deciding their own name, block times, block sizes, transaction costs, circulation, halvings, etc. In fact at the time of this writing there have been almost 30,000 copies of Bitcoin forked into new projects. Here is a link to the original Bitcoin repository and actively supported code. > https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin

Some individuals figured out that they could not only fork the bitcoin code but then they could also fork the ledger and the name which resulted in anyone who had Bitcoin at the time of the fork, also owning the same amount of the new flavor of Bitcoin. Most of these individuals and small groups managed to generate billions of dollars of value over night based on the reputation of the original developers and then proceed to try to perform a coup on the original developers while confusing new comers to crypto with a mini bitcoin identity crisis.

While its encouraged to fork the code of a successful project, general consensus is that it is black hat activity to also fork the ledger and name and especially in an effort to overthrow the original developers.

Other flavors of Bitcoin such as bitcoin gold, bitcoin cash, bitcoin cash sv, bitcoin diamond, etc - should not be seen as related to the original Bitcoin project in any way. These copies of Bitcoin should not be considered a cheaper "alternative Bitcoin" that will go up to the same price as Bitcoin. At the time of this writing, Bitcoin is the lead "digital currency" and it wont likely be replaced by a copy of itself if it can even be displaced from the top at this point.

Bitcoin may be the leading crypto currency intended for digital commerce but it isn't #1 in decentralized compute,  storage, smart contracts or an array of other purposes.  To see the leaders in their sectors, refer to our sector indices where you can compare sectors for blockchain adoption and an assets domination within their own sector.

What is a 51% attack

What is 51% attack?

A blockchain is a distributed database where individuals or company’s running a node or wallet on the blockchain will have a copy of some or all of the database and the contents of that database retains consistency through consensus of every node storing that data.


A 51% attack is when 51% of all the nodes online provide consensus on records in the database of which they have altered. Because greater than 50% of nodes concur, the records from the 51% will be written as fact. This is why the larger a network of nodes the more difficult it is to alter the records. Due to Bitcoin having so many more nodes & miners it is seen as one of the most secure blockchains against the 51% attack. The smaller the hashrate and node count, the more susceptible a block chain is to a 51% attack. Though rare, they have been known to happen. One of the first was with the Verge crypto currency but there have been more to follow, here is an article outlining some of the victims.

A blockchain is a distributed database where individuals or company's running a node or wallet on the blockchain will have a copy of some or all of the database and the contents of that database retains consistency through consensus of every node storing that data. What the data is used for varies by blockchain.

Excluding a 51% attack, for the most part blockchain provides an enforced trust where strangers are able to write to the blockchain and trust that it will not be altered later, after the fact. While Blockchain provides a valuable platform of trust in a decentralized environment, it is not necessarily a value add for all data storage.  Using a non-decentralized storage solution such as traditional SQL databases provides a superior performance and throughput compared to blockchain and makes more sense where records may need to be changed often or are only being written by one party (Most applications of database usage)

.  Where blockchain accels is when multiple autonomous external people or teams need to collaborate and enforce policies, enable auditing and share data in a fashion that ensures autonomy, transparency, security & trust.

An additional value to decentralized services is that they tend to be more enduring. As long as a project has even one supporter, the network will still be alive and able to process transactions. Furthermore, a decentralized network doesn’t provide a single focal point for hackers making it pretty much impossible to perform any meaningful distributed denial of service attack against a blockchain platform. The other caveat to having a decentralized platform is that there is no way to shut down any of the services without shutting down every node in the network, across the world, making decentralized blockchain solutions highly survivable.

Using blockchain for crypto currencies was the first and largest sector by market capitalization. Crypto currencies seen as a way to provide a currency based on enforced trust of the people instead of governments. Despite digital currency being the primary use by market capitalization, smart contracts are largely gaining international corporate adoption. Smart contracts like those processed on the Ethereum blockchain represent a way to enforce business negotiations, automate processes, tokenize assets and so much more.

Blockchains have also been seeing some traction in distributed compute, AI, stroage and identification services to name a few areas.  You can see which sectors are gaining the most traction with our sector indices which also provide market dominance by sector, comparing market domination among peers with like services.  https://coinmarketflow.com/indices/global

Overview of Sector Indices for crypto markets

Hello everyone, in this video, we are going to talk about a new first to market feature we recently released, we have sector indices for Crypto! We modeled our indices after the same formula used to calculate the S&P500 and it has produced some pretty interesting results.

Each sector index represents a like group of assets and we track the books, volume and marketcap for each index. The indices have names that relate to their underlying assets. For example we have Block Chain As A Service index, Stable coin index, Privacy, distributed storage and compute indices and a lot more, almost 20 indexes already.  Even just watching the stable coin index open interest and volume is hugely helpful to see when money is moving to the sidelines.

On the global indices page that we are looking at here, I really like the chart that shows where the money is in blockchain, what sectors are people putting the most money into as a whole.  Of course thanks to Bitcoin we can see that the Money index accounts for 65% of the entire market, that is global market dominance. We can look at the index score here and see that the second closest competitor is Block Chain as a A Service and its quite a ways behind. Its also amazing to see how a few sectors dominate the majority of the money in crypto.

-- So lets take a look at BlockChain As a Service -- these are all chains that are being used for tokenizing assets, providing smart contracts and a dapp platform to name some of their larger applications. It is not a surprise to see that Ethereum, the blockchain that pioneered BlockChain As A Service with a near 50% market domination among its emerging peers with EOS as a distant second with a little over 10% of the market. I do find it interesting to see these other players chip away at Ethereums market dominance like this. -- Lets look at the privacy coin index.   --    Again no surprise to see Monero dominating the sector with more than 50% dominance and Dash the only close contender.  Looking at the trend for the year we can see the sector is actually lower than it was a year ago as a whole. It will be interesting to see how this index reacts to anti-laundering legislation aimed at this sector in the future.

 

Our competitors put all assets into one bag and basically compare them against Bitcoin for market dominance despite providing completely different services. We have an easy way to see how an entire Blockchain sub-sector is performing compared to other sectors and we enable you to see what assets have market dominance within their sector, against their competition. If you are going to use marketcap valuation as a measure of dominance, this is the way to do it, not like our competition.

Technical Analysis FAQ's

What is the Market Depth Ratio (MDR)?

The Market Depth Ratio (MDR) was created by VantageCrypto and we believe will become a leading market indicator for market depth analysis along side other current mainstream indicators. The indicator is quite simple in that it is a single percentage representation indicating if there is more or less buying or selling pressure (bids or asks) and how much more or less of which one, relative to the assets total books.

For example a +25% MDR would indicate that the bids represent 25% more of the total order books than the asks. Where as a -10% MDR would indicate that the asks represent 10% more of the total books than the bids.

We further empower this solution by allowing users to see MDR based on the % of depth of books they have chosen and providing historic MDR in an intuitive and powerful signaling focused presentation.

MDR may provide different signaling for different assets based on an array of factors.  Dont expect the Bitcoin order books to signal the same as some low liquidity Ethereum Dapp.

We are charting out (and offering via API) the following MDR data sets

  • Real Time, updated by the minute
  • 1 hour average, updated by the minute
  • 3 hour average, updated by the minute
  • 24 hour average, updated by the minute

We offer short term averages as they are more appropriate in relationship to the usefulness of order flow data and provide the following value.

  • Smooth trendlines
  • Avoids impact from single anomolous market spike
  • Provides easier to decipher trends
  • Provides ability to track the crossing of multiple short term moving averages

What is Books to Volume Ratio (BVR)?

Online as an optional field, this is actually a very powerful metric in crypto exchange forensics. We leverage this to easily see wash trading manipulation and assess within a reasonable range, the actual real underlying volume of assets and exchanges. This metric is also finding value outside of this purpose such as evaluating the temperment of a recent run. Another first to market indicator similar to MDR.

What is the Bollinger Band?

Bollinger Bands has a middle line with two outer channel lines/band. The middle line is a simple moving average that is usually set at 20 days.  The outer lines are usually set 2 standard deviations above and below the middle band.

The simple and quick way to read the Bollinger Band is look for areas where it squeezes into a small and tight channel, this is a consolidation phase and indicates a break out is likley about to happen.  The size of the breakout is not determined by the Bollinger band. Once the break out has occured, any price action that goes up or down so fast that it is outside the outer lines of the bollinger band is an indication that the price has moved too far too fast and is likely to take a breather and fall back into the boundries of the bollinger band. Take a look at the capture below where we outline consolidation and an oversold/overbought break out.

You can use Bollinger Bands with crypto such as Bitcoin, Lightcoin, XRP, DASH, etc. The same as traditional stock markets, this indicator is not enough on its own and should be used in combination with other indicators.

What is a moving average?

The moving average is a technical indicator used to show the average closing price of the market over a specified timeframe with 20 day, 50 day and 200 day being the most popular timeframes. Traders often use a moving average to identify potential support or resistance along with the crossing of moving averages as a signal of an impending price movement.

Moving averages are typically provided in either a simple moving average (SMA) or an exponential moving average (EMA). The difference between SMA & EMA is that the simple moving average does not weight the averages where as the exponential moving average weights the more recent days inputs providing greater influence by recent price movements then equally across the entire timeframe being averaged.

It's not uncommon crypto traders use the moving average in conjunction to trendlines, market depth and order flow to make assessments on when to enter or exit a position. This indicator works great with trading bitcoin or trading altcoins such as Litecoin, Ethereum, XRP, Monero, ChainLink and any other digital asset being traded on crypto exchanges today.

Below is an example of some moving average for Bticoin, notice how the 50day moving average is currently providing solid support.  Any meaningful break of the 200day moving average or cross of the 50 day and 200 day SMA is considered a strong signal for this indicator.  https://www.tradingview.com/x/dJ4aW33E

How to calculate moving averages (SMA & EMA)?

The simple moving average (SMA) and the exponential moving average (EMA) are calculated differently. The simple moving average is simple average of all the price points in the series divided by the number of price points. The limitation of SMA is that all the data points will have equal weighting which may not properly represent recent price activity without looking at a shorter moving average.

The EMA was developed to give greater weighting to the most recent price action. This weighting may make the EMA better for trading short term trades as it is more sensitive to the current trends than the SMA. Another alternative is to use a shorter SMA average when trading short term.

The formula for each are below:

Simple Moving Average:

SMA = Here p=price and n=(total # of samples) each representing one price point in the overall average.  A 200 day EMA will ikely have at least 200 price points to average.

p1 + p2 + p3 +p4 / n Example: 5 day moving average, one price point per day. $100, $105, $110, $115, $100 / 5 = Current SMA = $106

Exponential Moving Average:

Where: EMAt​= EMA today

Vt​= Value today

EMAt​ = EMA today

s =smoothing

d = number of days​ Calculating EMA:

1. Calculate the SMA for the particular time period

2. Calculate the weight multiplier of the EMA using the formula: [2 ÷ (selected time period + 1)]. For a 10-day moving average, the multiplier would be [2/(10+1)]= 0.01818.

3. Use the smoothing factor with the previous EMA to provide the current value. For example, looking at a 10-day EMA for a share, the table below displays how the EMA would be calculated:

Whether or not to use an SMA or EMA or to use any moving average is a trader preference. These methods can be applied to trading any crypto, Bitcoin or alt coin trading all convey the same as trading traditional stocks using moving average.

Trading Crypto, How to trade moving averages?

There are 3 primary ways in which trader’s use the moving average:

#1. Indentify the direction of the trend: When prices are trending up, the moving average will also move higher, reflecting the increasing prices over an extended period of time. This could be interpreted as a bullish signal. The opposite is true if the price was consistently trading below the moving average, where traders might interpre

#2. For support and resistance levels: The moving average can be used to identify support and resistance levels. If the moving average is trending higher, crypto traders may enter the market on a retest of the moving average. Similarly, if the crypto trader is looking to short an over bought market or to exit a previous trade, then the moving average can be used to identify short entry or as a stop loss on the traders previous entry. The opposite is  occurs for down trends. 

3.Using multiple moving averages is common, crypto traders use of multiple moving averages as an indicator within itself. This allows traders to simultaneously assess the short and long-term trends in the market. As moving averages cross, it can be construed as weakness or strength for a specific digital asset.This method of using more than one moving average can be extremely useful in trending assets and markets and is similar to using the MACD oscillator. When using multiple moving averages, many crypto traders will look to see when the lines will cross.

A strong bullish indicator is referred to as ‘The Golden Cross’ where as a bullish pattern in reverse is referred to as the ‘The Death Cross’. A Golden cross is validated when the short-term moving average (ex: 50day SMA) crosses above a long-term moving average (ex: 200day SMA). The Death cross is represented by the short-term moving average crossing below the long-term moving average. Crytpto Traders often enter a postiion on the occurance of a golden cross and exit the market on occurance of the Death Cross These crossing of trendlines is considered the strongest signal moving averages can provide and are generally fairly highly respected. If nothing else, these inidicators hold true because the bulk of traders view and trade them similarly.

Technical analysis: What are channels?

A channel is when there is a support line and a resistance line of which ping pong the price back and forth between them. Additionally, the support and resistance lines remain at nearly the exact same distance from each other the entire time.

A channel is officially confirmed after touching each side of the channel 4 times total, alternating between support and resistance, bottom & top. Here we can see the 4 points laid out confirming the channel. Depending on what candle length you look at as to where you might draw the lines as many people will cut off the candle wick when charting however, most traditional technical analysis will tell you chart by the very tips of the wicks, the actual low or high experienced.  It is not uncommon for price action to break resistance but quickly returns without ever converting the resistance into support.  The same can happen in reverse as well. In general, the breaking of a channel generally indicates a significant price movement in one direction or the other depending on the direction it breaks, up or down.

Chainlink 7 month Channel:

chainlink ascending channel

Sometimes channels are horizontal and are often found near historical horizontal support or resistance but the bulk majority of channels are not horizontal, they are diagonal and either ascending or descending in nature. Ascending channels are typically considered bullish while descending channels are considered bearish. Channels can last from hours to years, to decades!

Trading Grade versus Investment Grade

Trading Grade and Investment Grade are not the same. Investment Grade relies on company/project fundamentals where as Trading Grade focuses on trusted liquidity required to be trade worthy. Though they are different, investors will find most Investment Grade assets are Trading Grade assets as well. If an asset is not Trading Grade, there is a good chance its not Investment Grade either.

VantageCrypto identifies Trading Grade assets as the following:

The majority of crytpo projects are not trading grade at this time although there are many platforms and hundreds of assets that are. The criteria we use to determine Trade Worthy assets and platforms are as follows.

Assets:

  • On a reputable exchange
  • Sees a minimum level or regular surges of daily liquidity over the last 90 days
  • Sees a minimum level or regular surges of daily volume over the last 90 days
  • Are not evident purveyors of fake volume or order books
  • *New assets: Meets minimum liquidity and volume requirments for 3 days

What is xBids & xAsks

This is part of our order flow tracking system.

  • xBids used to be bids when they were in the order book
  • xAsks used to be asks when they were in the order book

xBids were once orders to buy which have been filled, this means that the this order sold assets to an outstanding bid to buy them, xBids represent sell orders.

xAsks were once orders to sell which have been filled, this means that the this order bought assets from an outstanding ask to sell them, xAsks represent buy orders.

We are charting out (and offering via API) the following xBids & xAsks data sets

  • Real Time, updated by the minute
  • 1 hour average, updated by the minute

What is Order Flow Ratio (OFR)?

The OrderFlow Ratio (OFR) was created by VantageCrypto and we believe will become a leading market indicator for order flow analysis along side other current mainstream indicators. The indicator is quite simple in that it is a single percentage representation indicating if there is more or less buying or selling volume (xBids or xAsks) and how much more or less of which one, relative to the assets total order flow volume.

For example a +25% OFR would indicate that the xAsks represent 25% more of the total order books than the xBids. Where as a -10% OFR would indicate that the xBids represent 10% more of the total orderflow volume than the xAsks.

OFR may provide different signaling for different assets based on an array of factors.  Dont expect the Bitcoin order flow signal the same as some low liquidity Ethereum Dapp

Tracking Order Flow Momentum by timeframe

How we empower Order Flow Momentum tracking is with the use of a time metric on both xBids and xAsks. We offer this data globally as well as on each individual asset (globally). On our order flow information panel we provide a metric bar labeled time. Users can hover over 3 sections of the bar to see their values and soon API users will be able to pull this data with our oflow API point.

Exampe of OrderFlow panel

  • There are two sides of the time table, one for buys, the other for sells.
  • Each side has 3 sections : Last hour, last 6 hours and last 24 hours.
  • Each section shows the amount of the orders that fell within that timeframe both by percentage of the total and as well the total value of those assets.

This chart makes it super easy to visualize when there is buy or sell momentum as we see the last hours of buys expand and often we can see the taper of momentum when the 1 hour bar starts to shrink as the 6 hour bar grows. This API data can offer traders an entire new way to watch momentum without just looking at broad volume.

Tracking Order Flow by size

How we empower Order Flow size tracking is with the use of a size metric on both xBids and xAsks. We are looking at the size of the order that was placed that executed and whether it was a buy or a sell order. We offer this data globally as well as on each individual asset (globally). On our order flow information panel we provide a metric bar labeled size. Users can hover over 3 sections of the bar to see their values and soon API users will be able to pull this data with our oflow API point.

Exampe of OrderFlow panel

  • This charts the last 24 hours of xbids/xasks based on size
  • There are two sides of the time table, one for buys, the other for sells.
  • Each side has 3 sections: Small orders (<$100USD in value), Medium Orders (>$100<$50kUSD in value), Large orders (>$50k USD in value)
  • Each section shows the amount of the orders that fell within that size both by percentage of the total and as well the total value of those assets.

This chart makes it easy to visualize what kind of traders are busy making volume. Are they hobbyists and users with small and micro transactions, are they home traders or are they likely institutional.  When we see large orders start to swell in size, we know there is likely institutional investors or large traders making a lot of moves. These charts make it easy to see if the institutional traders are buying or selling and which one they are doing more of.

Interpreting order flow data on coinmarketflow

Crypto Market order flow data from VantageCrypto available on https://coinmarketflow.com

We track the entire order flow process from order books to executed orders. On the site, we distinctly differentiate between order books and order flow where order books focus on outstanding orders which represents an assets real-time liquidity and order flow focuses on the executed bids and asks or x-Bids and x-Asks. Combined, this data can often determine whether volume was as a result of buying, selling, market orders or limit orders and can even highlight liquidations.

X-bids and x-asks are exactly what they sound like. X-bids are executed bids, this represents a sell as the seller sells at the buyers bid price. x-asks represent a buy where the buyer buys at the sellers ask price. Right now we chart real-time data but soon we will also offer an array of other data such as moving averages to smooth charting and provide more defined trends and crossovers.

the order flow ratio or OFR is the same as our market depth ratio but instead of charting the ratio between outstanding bids and asks, we track the ratio between executed bids and executed asks. The OFR provides a single value that depicts whether there is more buying or selling and comparatively how much, displayed as a percentage. If we currently have a -5% OFR it means that there is currently 5% more sell orders executing than there are buy orders.

We also provide the order flow information panel here to the right of the chart. On the front page we provide data for the global crypto market combined. There are a few major components to this panel. At the top we show the current volume 24 hour running average, OFR, x-bids and x-asks followed by our large order alerts.

Our large order alerts report any buy or sell order of which in its entirety is larger than 5% of the current combined active order books for that asset on the exchange that it occurs on. For example this buy order for 200 thousand dollars on binance represents that at the time of execution, combined orderbooks for binance USD were less than 4 million dollars as a $200,000 dollar order is 5% of 4 million dollars. These alerts are intended to alert users of institutional investor activities and when orders are large enough to impact the assets liquidity on the exchange they are trading on. Its also important to point out, we see more large order alerts in the derivatives market. We are currently only tracking order flow for derivatives on bitmex but will be adding order flow for our other derivatives exchanges shortly. Only about half the exchanges on our site currently have order flow integrated, the others will be updated in the very near future.

The last part of the order flow information panel provides a visual into the average size of the orders being processed and how recently we witnessed the order flow volume. We break the size of the orders into 3 categories, small orders, less than $100 dollars, medium sized orders less than $50,000 dollars and large orders, over $50,000 dollars. This break down is displayed visually for both buys and sells. Each section of the bar represents the amount and percent of the various sizes of buys and sells over the last 24 hours.

The order-flow time bar seeks to visually identify the momentum of order flow. We also separate the data into 3 parts for both buys and sells. The 1st bar represents buys or sells in the last hour, expressed as an absolute value and as a percent of all the volume over the last 24 hours. The second bar identifies buys and sells over the last 6 hours and the third bar represents how much of the volume was more than 6 hours ago but less than 24 hours ago.

We also offer an alpha version of our trading view charts with this data and will be adding the additional moving averages for both our order books and order flow data in the near future. Additionally, we also add order flow columns to the field chooser underneath individual assets and exchanges.

MDR Peaks & Valleys strategy

Hello Everyone, I am going to talk to you today about one of many ways that you
can use our site to help you find gains trading. At the moment we are in beta and
we are a bit of a secret weapon as not many people know about us yet.

Before we show you our technique for trading MDR peaks and valleys, and this is important - Technical analysis has been being performed and perfected for around 100 years now. This book, “Technical Analysis of the Financial Markets” is somewhat of a 500
page bible for technical analysis and has been around a long time. The book was
originally written as many of our common day “T””A” practices were being defined
and was later revised around the year 2000. The book outlines 3 major components
to technical analysis - Price, Volume & Open Interest. But the forefathers of “T”“A”
who wrote those trading strategies for Price and Volume, really just glaze over open
interest, and here is why - Traditional stock markets only support a view into open
interest for contract vehicles such as futures and options. Traditional markets are
not capable of providing open-interest on individual assets, they cant tell you how
many buy and sell orders there are for shares of Apple, Microsoft or shares of any
other individual asset.


With the advent of crypto-currency exchanges, this changes everything! Now for
the first time ever, we can see and chart open interest on individual assets. This is
something our “T”“A” forefathers and traditional traders today could only dream of.
This is why we say we are reinvigorating Technical Analysis. We believe that
numerous methods of techncial analysis for this data will emerge, presenting the
world with a new round of TA forefathers. So analysts, come to our site and
establish your methodology and perhaps find your place in future history books.
Now let’s talk about trading MDR peaks and valleys, its essentially relying on order
book ratio trending as an absolute confirmation to price action. This is just one of so
many ways to use this data but we like it because it’s really easy to use.


So what are you looking at when you look at MDR? The MDR is the Market Depth
Ratio, of the order-books - this is a single percentage, plus or minus, that represents
the leaning of the order books. So a negative 5% MDR indicates there is currently
5% more asks than bids by overall book value, this is a powerful market sentiment
indicator.


We are integrating trading view charts as we speak, in the meantime, I am using a
plugin to draw on my browser for you today.
The MDR peaks and valleys are exactly what they sound like, now let’s see what
they look like in practice and how they work.
I have purposely chosen several assets that have recently made price moves, but
let’s start with the global market - this is all the assets concatenated for a single
market view, which by the way, you can also click up here and see assets by
regional market and filter out exchanges, another pretty cool first to market
feature.


VCDepth.io MDR Explainer Script 01a
Now lets look at this big valley and subsequent peak. As soon as we see the
previous peak pull back, this one was really small, but we signaled the potential
start of the new valley, confirming or possibly leading the increase in price. -
Once we reach the bottom of the valley and confirm that we are starting back up
the valley, we are seeing the price decline. Once the valley becomes a peak, the
same principal applies in reverse, this shift in sentiment is likely an ideal point to
enter or exit a holding. Confirming a reversal is performed in the same way as
charting price, a movement that officially breaks the trend line in the reverse
direction.


Now I am going to show some examples that help reiterate and illustrate this simple
method of trading depth of market using MDR peaks and valleys. I have chosen
three assets as they appear to strongly correlate price to MDR. Let’s take a look.
First, Chainlink, look at these peaks and valleys along with their relevant price
action. – Here you can see as the valley comes up into a peak, the price is falling,
and then once we see the peak officially start to slope, we see the prices run.
Depending on your appetite for risk on whether you trade the slope or the crossover
which might be considered safer. Notice nearly every price movement on this chart
- signaled in books prior to price action when using this strategy.
-
Here is Binance, again, look at price to MDR action, clear indicators that signal well
in advance
-
Look at ADA and how it responded better to a different depth of market, almost like
focusing the MDR chart.
-
I want to show you one more, “E””R””D”, look at these spikes, it makes me want to
investigate a little more. Let me change this to show bids and asks and, make sure
its a day chart. Look at this, there is repeated shifting from buy wall to sell wall in
what appears to be direct market manipulation. This isn’t peaks and valleys but
another thing you can see at vcdepth.io


Now when using MDR, it is important to note that each asset can respond differently
based on its own normalized order book behavior. Some assets, their peaks and
valleys work exactly opposite of what we just showed you, but they provide the
same value. Some assets are not responsive to the peaks and valleys strategy at
all. Also some assets and trading strategies may require users to filter the depth of
market that they are viewing in order to optimize the book to price correlation. We
have found MDR Peaks and Valley strategy to work best with assets that have
visible peaks and valleys looking at 100% of the order books on a weekly chart. See
our explainer video for more details on using the depth of market filter.

There are so many more ways to use this data, its scary powerful and traders are
already using this data today to make profits. There are also numerous analysts that are starting to cover methods for trading market depth using our data. Look in
the description of this video for a link to one of the earliest adopters of our data,
Bitcoin Trading Challenge. He has made numerous videos regarding trading
methodologies for trading market depth and leveraging our site. So if you are
looking for more ideas trading depth, his channel is a great place to start!
This video is not investment advice, do your own research - good luck everyone and
happy trading!

How Order Book Depth of Market works (DOM)

VantageCrypto DOM

The Depth of Market (DOM) relates to how deep you look at the order books beyond asks and bids at the current price. Using different DOM allows users to focus on order books relevant to their trading methodology. 

  • Lower DOM allows users to see Order Books based on money in play
    • Adjust based on underlying asset price, 1% may be fine for a $500 asset but 10% is more appropriate for a .50 cent asset.

Stable Index Order Book Trending

What is the Stable Index?  It is combined statistics for all tracked stable assets in a single index, volume and order book value.

One of the many market characteristics we have observed since starting to watch market liquidity more than 2 years ago is the signalling we see in stable assets as money flows to the sidelines. Stable coins dont run in price so much and volume may be seen in inflow or outflow without looking at order flow. The order books serve as a more clear indication of underlying movement for the index due to the nature of the underlying assets.

Because we have not implemented Trading View Charts on our global page or indices, we demonstrate using our simple charts and a browser markup tool. We see that the orderbooks work within a channel most times, at minimum with resistance or support. We monitor for the break of resistance or support and see it as a market wide signal.

Below is a graphic that shows the stable index order books along side the global markets market cap

Candle Patterns | Three Advancing White Soldiers

Three White Soldiers BULLISH | reversal candle pattern

Three white soldiers are essentially 3 green candles but with the caveat that they must occur on the tail of a down trend and they have a few other minor details required for the candles to conform to in order to consider this a Three White Soldier candle pattern.

The three White Soldiers candle pattern has a signature pattern of 3 ascending candles in a row. The first candle had to have been a lower candle than the previous, this marks a reversal. Each subsequent candle must start after the body of its predecessor and the body should span higher than the previous candle.

  •  First candle
    •  a candle in a downtrend
    •  white/green body
  • Second candle
    • white body
    • the opening price within the previous body
    • the closing price above the previous closing price
  • Third candle
    • white body
    • the opening price within the previous body
    • the closing price above the previous closing price

Candle Pattern | Advanced Block Finder

Advanced Orderblock finder, BEARISH | reversal candle pattern

Advance block finder is a candle pattern that can be used to flag both  BEARISH patterns.
The pattern is a three-candle pattern that suggests a reversal. As with any technical indicator, other present market conditions can be used to improve the reliability of this metric.

  • The price action has displayed an upward trend or a bounce within a downtrend
  • Three white/green candles appear that have progressively shorter bodies
  • The open of the second and third candles lie within the real body of the previous candles respectively
  • The upper shadows/wicks of the three candles gradually become taller, especially the shadow of the third candle
