Amdax Trend is an algorithmic strategy that invests based on market trends. We speak of trends when the price of a crypto asset moves in the same direction over a certain period. The algorithm behind Amdax Trend detects whether there is a trend and to what extent that is the case. In a positive trend, it buys, and in a negative trend, it sells.
Financial markets often show trends, with prices rising or falling for extended periods. Crypto assets are no exception. When looking at price movements, the following statement often holds:
Past winners tend to be future winners, while past losers tend to be future losers.”
In the market, this means that rising prices attract more buyers while falling prices lead to more sellers. This maintains price movements for an extended time, leading to a self-reinforcing effect in both directions.
Amdax Trend benefits from this by following the trend and not trading based on a price target determined by fundamental analysis.
With Amdax Trend, the positioning is determined based on the trend and the volatility of each individual crypto asset in the portfolio. In a strong trend, more is bought than in a weak trend. In increased volatility, the position is reduced. Amdax Trend fully automatically assembles a portfolio for you of crypto assets with a strong trend.
The algorithm trades only after a clear trend has been detected. This means that Amdax Trend reacts after the market has changed direction. Therefore, this strategy never buys or sells exactly at the lowest or highest price.
The Amdax Trend strategy performs well over a long period of time with clear price direction. The algorithm behind Amdax Trend is based on methods that have proven their worth in the traditional investment world.
The Amdax Trend portfolio consists of a selection of crypto assets from the top 20, ranked by market value. From this, the crypto assets in which Amdax Trend trades are selected at the discretion of our team of experts. In doing so, we primarily look at the available liquidity.
Depending on the trend, the extent to which you are exposed to the crypto market can vary between zero and one hundred percent. Your Amdax Trend portfolio is rebalanced to the weights resulting from the strategy every 24 hours.
The Algorithm trades in the following crypto assets: Avalanche ($AVAX), Binance Coin ($BNB), Bitcoin ($BTC), Chainlink ($LINK), Ethereum ($ETH), Litecoin ($LTC), Polkadot ($DOT), Polygon ($MATIC), Ripple ($XRP), Solana ($SOL), and Uniswap ($UNI). Within the portfolio, exposure to these crypto assets ranges from zero to one hundred percent. The selection process for crypto assets within the Amdax Trend portfolio can be found in the factsheet.
The Amdax Trend algorithm responds to the price trends present in the crypto market. The strategy follows the direction of the prices and thus benefits from long-lasting and clear price movements.
During periods of high volatility and uncertainty in the market, the strategy reduces the amount of crypto in your portfolio by automatically converting it to Euros or stablecoins. A higher degree of uncertainty in the market then directly leads to a reduction of exposure to the market.
The algorithm determines the distribution between the different crypto assets in your portfolio and carry out the necessary transactions to reach the right distribution completely automatically.
