How To Choose Candlestick Indicators? 3 Steps For Better Crypto Analysis


When selecting metrics, apply three steps for more accurate price prediction and analytics.

  • Step 1: Multi-chain check for your target token.
  • Step 3: “Favorite” metrics to create your dashboard.

Check Token Signals On Multi-Chain

Some tokens deploy on multi-chain. You may capture a bullish signal on one chain but miss a bigger up on another if you don’t switch blockchains.

For example, Telcoin ($TEL) is circulating on Ethereum and Polygon.

On Oct 11, we observed token accumulation signals of Jump Trading on Ethereum. They increased their $TEL positions by 140.22% in 7 days to a total value of $332K.

$TEL - Top Holders (Smart Money)

Data proved this crypto fund prepared well before the significant price surge – $TEL skyrocketed 166% over the next two months.

On Nov 25, $TEL CEX Flow on Ethereum and Polygon recorded bullish signals simultaneously – Traders withdrew tokens to on-chain wallets.

$TEL - CEX Flow (Polygon)

It was an entry point if you captured this signal. After a short retracement on that day, $TEL climbed higher.

We’ve integrated with BNB Chain; it’s good news for hunters chasing BSC Gems. 

Select Relevant Metric Groups

Before you trade, check the Balances On Exchanges chart to understand the distribution of the circulating supply. Then choose the most related indicator groups.

A token’s Balances on Exchanges refer to the token amount circulating on CEXs and DEXs. These tokens are available to the public for trading on exchanges and thus could affect the price.

Two examples show you tricks.

Example 1: $TORN

$TORN CEX supply is significantly higher than the supply on DEX. Inflows and outflows are more sensitive to price than trades on DEX.

$TORN - Balances on Exchanges

A story in Aug proved it.

$TRON Balances on CEXs peaked on Aug 9. The FUD sentiment drove traders to transfer tokens to centralized exchanges. As a result, increased selling pressure sent prices lower.

$TORN - CEX Balance

Although a green candle was seen on Aug 10, the heavy inflows crashed the token price.

CEX Charts Recommendation

Example 2: $RPL

$RPL DEX supply is 11x the CEX supply. So checking DEX Trades and Liquidity metric groups is more critical.

$RPL - Balances on Exchanges

In Aug, we shared bullish signals of $RPL. The Net Buy recorded consistent green and increased 1,968.73% since Jul 26.

$RPL - Net Buy Chart

$RPL Net Add Liquidity surged 5,091.96% and hit an all-time high on Aug 1. In addition, liquidity providers added $5M in a single day.

Those bullish signals reflect traders’ positive perspectives on Rocketpool before the ETH merge. As a result, the RPL price kept climbing in the next three weeks.

DEX Trades Charts Recommendation

Liquidity Charts Recommendation

Sometimes you will find that the circulating supply of a token is split between DEX & CEX. In that case, you should check both CEX, DEX & Liquidity indicators.
