Crypto research and analysis service Simetri Research has launched a new platform that displays short-term trading signals.

Closing the information gap

Crypto Briefing announced the new service, Coins on the Move, on Aug. 22. Coins on the Move is reportedly designed to meet the informational needs of short-term crypto traders, who prefer to actively buy and sell rather than hodl. Insights the platform offers include entry and exit prices and near-term price projections accompanied by researcher rationales. 

The service is currently only being offered to Simetri Research subscribers — and CEO Han Kao says the company is trying to close an information gap that is detrimental to retail investors, adding:

“When one party has a great deal of knowledge, and the other has very little, that imbalance puts the retail investor at a huge disadvantage. Our goal is to help redress that imbalance with SIMETRI — giving our best interpretation of multiple data points, to help investors understand the market as quickly and easily as possible.”

Technical analysis “doesn’t tell the full story”

According to Kao, neither technical analysis nor fundamental analysis are comprehensive predictors of crypto price. He claimed:

“Technical analysis is helpful in the cryptocurrency world [...] But it doesn’t tell the full story. And since this is still a nascent market, nor does purely fundamental analysis. Crypto pricing is dictated by a unique hybrid of factors, such as the overall project strength, market trends such as staking, token momentum, investor sentiment, and of course the 24/7 news cycle.”

Simetri remains a fairly young initiative, having launched at the beginning of July of this year. It is backed by digital currency reviewer Crypto Briefing and crypto price aggregator CoinMarketCap.

Coinbase moves into trading signals

As reported by Cointelegraph, major crypto platform Coinbase announced in July that it would offer crypto trading signals to its customers. In particular, Coinbase unveiled plans to provide signals for top holder activity, typical hold time and popularity, and price correlation. Coinbase purportedly believes these metrics will enable investors to better understand user behavior, but the data itself will be aggregated and completely anonymous.
