Yanda’s strategies profitability Review


As part of the range of publications Yanda shares with its community, the 'Strategies Profitability Review' updates its users with platform-related information, such as most traded coins and average success rate of strategies, by using numerical data from thousands of executed strategies.

An interesting question that arises when using Yanda.io is: “Do profits from Strategies, vary during bear and bull markets” By knowing the answer to that question, Yanda can be used as the ideal hedge in different market conditions.


Data Findings on Yanda 

On Yanda’s platform, we analysed the data collected from over 15,800 strategies over the years, in both bear and bull markets, in order to test our trading software and its results, during different market cycles. The aim of this analysis, is to test our software’s performances based on data collected during different markers cycles; as well as analysing the change in traders’ activity and preference.

Traded assets preferences

Our data showed, over the years, a shift in preferred base-assets by platform’s users. In 2016 the most used base-asset was Bitcoin (BTC), by 2017, the preferred base-assets had become 5: Ethereum (ETH), US Dollar (USD), Litecoin (LTC), Monero (XMR), and Bitcoin. In 2018, 6 coins had also become main base-assets: Neo (NEO), Cardano (ADA), Digibyte (DGB), Tron (TRX), Tether (USDT) and Vechain (VET).

This change in base-assets shows a shift in preferences towards a more differentiated portfolio from users. As new coins are acquired, starting a strategy, and accumulating additional coins, is the prefered solution for most users of our platform. Data shows increasing volume in USD and USDT strategies, over the years, signalling some traders’ preference towards safer trading-pairs.

Additional findings, showed an increase in accepted (seeked) risk level, in coins such as Monero and Litecoin, set at 65% and 70%. This likely shows an increase in accepted risk level in assets perceived as more risky, therefore, potentially more profitable. The data would suggest some traders like to balance their trading portfolios, by mixing strategies in less volatile pairs with riskier ones, maximising risk/reward.

Strategies Average Success Rate

Among many interesting findings, a particular one stood out: the average success rate of out strategies. We analysed data from over 15,800 strategies over the past years, both by 6 months period intervals and overall; adjusted for strategy weight.

Findings showed little to no variation in strategies outcomes during different market cycles, as success rate averaged around 97%.This means that profiting from our Strategies is independent of market conditions, making Yanda a useful trading tool for your portfolio.
