The NWST1100 index fell 3.43% over the previous week; indicators changed direction to upward. Chain (XCN) Token is a member of the NWSL100 crypto index, making the most significant jump in our ranking over the last two weeks.
*Below, we present a standardized weekly report and next week’s outlook, prepared based on Swingtum Theory of intelligent finance. We gauge the crypto market’s breadth and direction by showing charts 2100NEWS Digital Assets Total Index (NWST1100), which measures 1100 (by market capitalization) significant crypto assets’ performance. The information-laden chart is difficult to read initially, but the chart shows essential price information, crucial decisive price levels, momentum, trading volumes, and crypto market breadth.
The previous report showed that our assumption for the last week had been: “The support S2 flipped to resistance after a spike and a rebound. That level could be the target for an upward move and less likely resumption of the downtrend.” The NWST1100 chart shows the index price moved to the Keltner channel inside the descending channel, but the resistance was strong. The Momentum indicators at the top show: RSI, PPO histogram, PPO lines, and the breadth indicators at the bottom of the chart, and these indicators changed direction to upward.
The chart on the right shows The percentage of digital assets trading above a 50-days moving average breadth indicator: All four A50R lines are extremely oversold readings (belove 10). In various measures of market breadth on the chart can be seen more clearly that crypto markets were in a downtrend.
* The percentage of digital assets trading above a specific moving average is a breadth indicator that measures internal strength or weakness in the underlying index. The chart on the right side compares the percentage of DA trading above 50 days EMA for:
- 100 Large-caps members of NWSL100 (top box)
- 1100 members of NWST1100
- 100 Ethereum Tokens members of NWSET100
- 100 Coins members of NWSCo100 (bottom box)
Outlook for this week
The waves are at least partially predictable due to their quasi-periodic nature. If we look ahead, the Momentum indicators give us the following signals: RSI is 31; RSI, PPO histogram, and PPO lines may continue rising in the coming days. The Breadth indicators at the bottom of the chart may flatten. My opinion is based on this setup: the rebound may last, and a move over support S2 is likely (+10%).
Performance of various groups of Digital Assets (Coins and Tokens)
We can see in the table that the total index (NWST1100) fell by 3.43% during the previous week. The chart below shows Bitcoin, Ether, and the 2100NEWS DA Indexes, which measure the performance of Ethereum-based tokens (NWSET100), Large caps (NWSL100), and Coins (NWSCo100). Bitcoin (-24.92%) has been the best-performing during the previous thirty days.
Crypto (Digital Assets) compared with global equity
The chart compares the performance of the average Digital Asset (Coins, Tokens) represented by our NWST1100 index with the average global share represented by the Dow Jones global W1Dow index. Their quotient hit a record high six months ago; however, it is 57.7% lower now. The Percentage Change Marks on the chart show that NWST1100 lagged behind W1Dow by 38.5% over the last 12 months, while this year, NWST1100 was 41.6% lower. The blue curve is the average index price during the previous twelve months. We can see that the NWST1100 spot price is 44.8% lower than twelve months index’s average price. That means: If we bought one NWST1100 every day over the last twelve months, our investment is recording a 44.8% loss today. Global equity (W1Dow) spot price is 13.4% lower than twelve months index’s average price.

We gauged the Chain (XCN) Large-cap Ethereum-based Token with 2100NEWS Digital Assets 100 Large Cap Index (NWSL100) to make an appropriate peer comparison. On average (violet area chart), the relationship between NWSL100 and XCN has shown that XCN was more potent over the last two months, and XCN has beaten NWSL100 by 159% during the previous two months. First, let’s compare the XCN green area graph with the index (orange area graph) while observing the correlation graph. The correlation graph explains that the correlation is weak (Pearson’s correlation coefficient = -0.09. Only 54% of the time, it was moving in the same direction as the NWSL100. So, it has been a bad representative of the NWSL100 index regarding price changes.
*We elect the member of the NWSL100 crypto index with the most significant jump in our ranking. We will look at how the market rates the project’s progress in case of price changes. It seems important to us whether the project is out of the ordinary tide of crypto project prices. Peer comparison should be efficient and effective, considering an investor’s point of view.
