What is Technical Analysis?

Technical analysis is the study of past price action to reliably forecast future prices. By studying how price and volume behaved in similar market conditions in the past, technical traders rely solely on this information to find an edge and try to predict how the market may play out in the future.Since technical analysis is a very wide-ranging field, this article only serves to give the reader a solid introduction to some of the most effective technical analysis techniques. Subscribe to our blog for more trading-related content, as we’ll go into depth into some strategies outlined here! Purely technical traders do not care about fundamentals or sentiment, focusing solely on price action and indicators derived from the price or trading volume. Although technical analysis often gets a bad rap, it can be useful for investors and traders: the key is knowing what the indicators represent, how they are calculated, their likelihood of success and executing trades using these methods accordingly.Need an introduction to the topic of price action? Check out our team brown bag video, the 1–2–3’s of price action, to learn more. The foundations for technical analysis were laid with candlestick analysis from 18th century Japan and Dow theory, which became popular in the 1920s/1930s and posits that the price of company stocks moves in waves. With the increasing financialization of the global economy from the 1980s onwards, the fi...

What is EIP-4844?

With the Merge now behind us, Ethereum ‘s next big milestone will be the Shanghai hard fork which will include EIP-4844. The upgrade, estimated to occur in March 2023, is likely to include an improvement to the protocol that will significantly boost the throughput of Layer 2s and bring transaction costs down to a fraction of a penny. EIP-4844, also known as Proto-danksharding, is an exciting proposal for Ethereum that has the potential to deliver big scalability gains, especially for rollups, while also laying the groundwork that’s necessary to implement sharding. The improvement proposal, authored by Dankrad Feist and Proto Lambda, introduces a lot of new things to Ethereum and begins to address the main scaling bottleneck faced today: data availability. But what does the term data availability even mean? How does EIP-4844 achieve greater scalability? And what are the new changes that need to be introduced to make this a reality? The current Ethereum roadmap relies on rollups to push scalability forward until sharding is implemented. Rollups are innovative in that they take storage and execution of a blockchain off-chain, reducing the burden on Ethereum’s Layer 1 (L1) while also realizing savings for execution and storing the ‘state’. Basically, the sequencer or verifier of a rollup creates a transaction on L1 that includes all transactions, state roots and commitments from the Layer 2 (L2), posts this informatio...

What is an Automated Market Maker (AMM)?

Automated Market Makers (AMMs) have become an integral part of the DeFi ecosystem, facilitating trillions in trading volume. Pioneered by projects like Bancor and Uniswap in 2017/2018, AMMs provide an interesting alternative to the traditional central limit order book model. Replicating an order book on the blockchain runs into two major problems: first, there are gas costs involved for each order a maker wants to submit or change, which becomes expensive over time and inefficient. Second, since blockchain data is publicly available and readily accessible, frontrunning prevents traders from executing the trades they actually want. One of the major advantages of AMMs over order books is that anyone can supply assets to a pool to become a liquidity provider and earn trading fees. As a result, AMMs are able to attract more capital, resulting in greater market depth for decentralized exchanges (DEXes) as compared to their centralized counterparts. It’s no surprise then that this innovation has become a major foundation for the most popular DEXes and even other DeFi applications. — A Brief History of AMMs - Operating a DEX on the blockchain with AMMs was first discussed by Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin back in 2016, which later inspired the creation of Uniswap. While Bancor is credited with creating the first ever AMM (called omnipool), a major disadvantage of this approach was that tokens had to be paired against...

Understanding Crypto Trading Strategies

To navigate the crypto markets and trade with success, it’s important to develop a strategy that you can backtest and refine over time. This article will go over the different elements of a trading strategy and provide you with some ideas in formulating your own unique approach. — Outline - What is a Trading Strategy?, What is Scalping?, What is Day Trading?, What is Swing Trading?, What is Position Trading?, Passive Trading Strategies, — What is a Trading Strategy? - Just like in sports, business or any other competitive field, a good strategy can be the difference between success and failure. The importance of strategizing cannot be understated, as a trading strategy is a set of rules and practices that gives you direction by specifying your aims, the markets you’ll trade, and your risk tolerance. When setting these factors beforehand, a strategy can help you enforce discipline and trade in a systematic way, eliminating guesswork and emotions from the trading process. Without a strategy, you may make decisions on a whim without much thought and sticking to your plan ensures that you only take action when the best opportunities present themselves. In short, a piece of advice traders should always keep in mind: — “Plan the trade and then trade the plan”. — Every person is unique and so too are the strategies used by traders in the cryptocurrency market. Your personality, lifestyle, world ...

What are Virtual Tokens?

Did you know that when you’re providing liquidity or trading on Perp v2, you’re actually trading virtual tokens through pools on Uniswap v3? Read on to learn more about how virtual tokens are used to represent your positions. Simply put, a virtual token (or vToken) is a synthetic asset with no intrinsic value, used for accounting purposes. The base asset, also known as vBase, is the underlying asset you’re trading and the quote asset is always USD. For example, when trading ETH-USD on Perp v2, you are actually trading virtual ETH (or vETH) against vUSD via the Uniswap v3 pool. In traditional markets, a clearinghouse is an intermediary that validates transactions between buyers and sellers, however for Perp v2, it is actually a smart contract! For all positions on Perp v2, the clearinghouse manages all trades for users, which you can see executed in real time here. Uniswap v3 is used as the backend Automated Market Maker (AMM), which takes virtual tokens so that only the clearinghouse owns these tokens and can interact with the AMM. The vTokens are non-transferable outside of the clearinghouse and do not have any real value. And as all tokens in these pools are minted by the clearinghouse, Uniswap transaction fees can be ignored. If you go to DEX Screener and look at the data for Uniswap v3 on Optimism, you’ll discover that five out of the ten top markets by trading volume are vToken pairs traded on Perp v2! Source:...

Perp Traders Remain Quiet As Bitcoin Struggles To Hold $30,000

    Bitcoin has been struggling to hold on to the $30,000 level for the better part of this week, failing more often than not. While there have been various reactions from different parts of the market such as the ETFs, perpetual traders seem to have taken this as a sign to hold off on their activities. What this has led to is a continuation of the neutral or below-neutral funding rates that have been recorded in the past couple of weeks. Bitcoin Funding Rates Unmoved For the past few months, bitcoin funding rates have been tethering around the neutral and below neutral levels. This is interesting given that open interest in perpetual had surged to new all-time highs during this time.  Funding rates fall below neutral | Source: Arcane Research The 21 bitcoin funding rate intervals on the Binance and Bybit exchanges have been dominated by below-neutral funding rates. A total of 16 funding rates have been neural while 5 have been neutral funding rates. All this while, the perps have continued to trade at a reasonable discount to the spot. Leverage Still Surging Even though bitcoin funding rates have been straggling, it has not affected the performance of open interest (OI). OI had declined significantly in the previous week but last week saw BTC denominated open interest retrace its steps and add 41,000 BTC. This brought the total denominated OI to touch new all-time highs of 290,000BTC, beating the previous May 4th high of 282,000 BTC. Just a week after open interest had div... read More

Broader Market Celebrates Bitcoin Breakout, But What About Perp Traders?

    Bitcoin perpetual traders seem to be the only ones unmoved by the digital asset’s recent breakout. BTC which has had a tremendous rally during the first half of the week had been able to break out of the slump of the low $40,000s and moved on an upward trajectory above $47,500. However, perp traders have not reacted much to it given the state of the funding rates. Funding Rates Remain Flat The bitcoin perpetual traders are not reacting to the recent upside as expected. This is evidenced in the fact that the perp basis is still sitting at or even below neutral funding rates, marking the 115th consecutive day that this has remained the case. This speaks volumes to how perp traders are viewing the market. Regardless of the bitcoin price increase, they have not increased their activity in any significant way. BTC funding rates remain neutral amid price growth | Source: Arcane Research It could easily mean that perp traders are not convinced by the recent price movement. As with the previous uptrends recorded this year, it could mean that perp traders are expecting the digital asset to go the same way. Even going as far as falling below the neutral funding rate. This follows the trend for the year so far, given that there have been no positive funding rates recorded in 2022. The decline in funding rates can be attributed to long traders closing their positions, which have caused perpetual prices to either align or continue to trail behind spot prices. Bitcoin Open Interest ... read More
