Identifying the best charting tools, network data providers, and price predictions as part 2 of our Crypto Fundamentals for Traders series
On July 17th we published the first article in this series, Top Bitcoin Price Indicators & Metrics traders Need to Know, explaining fundamental tools for analysis that every investor and trader should understand. Expanding on that, this piece focuses on top resources for evaluating investing and trading of crypto assets. These five resources provide insights into price patterns, historical network and usage data, and in-house research.
OKCoin’s candlestick charts don’t just track spot prices, they give traders a look at market sentiment for each crypto asset. These robust charts provide opportunity for quick analysis, with each candlestick representing a period of time and the respective open, close, high, and low price points for that period. The size of each candlestick shows traders the size of price moves, while the colors represent the % price change within the given time period. The above chart demonstrates daily price fluctuations.
Because candlestick charts demonstrate price movement visually, they can help traders spot patterns and make short term decisions.
