The NWST1100 index has soared 16.53% over the previous week; a bullish trend is the January Effect. Gala (GALA), Large-cap Ethereum-based 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 the Theory Swingtum 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 last week’s assumption. “A rally to the resistance R2 in the pink range of the chart was likely.” The NWST1100 chart shows the index price has experienced a sharp Rally and Double Top Breakout on 12-Jan. The January Effect – a bullish trend is in place. Momentum indicators at the top show PPO lines, RSI, the PPO histogram, and the Breadth indicators (at the bottom of the chart). All five indicators have risen.
The chart on the right shows The percentage of digital assets trading above a 50-day moving average breadth indicator: All four A50R lines are overbought and confirm a sharp bullish trend like in March or August 2022.
* 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 87 and overbought; RSI, PPO histogram, PPO lines, and the Breadth indicators at the bottom of the first charts (NWST1100) may change direction. The P&F chart on the left shows Bullish Price Objective (Tentative) at 3400 points (+40%). Based on this setup, I think consolidation is likely.
Performance of various groups of Digital Assets (Coins and Tokens)
The table shows that the total (NWST1100) index has soared 16.53% over the last week. In the chart below, we can see Bitcoin, Ether, and the 2100NEWS Indices, which measure the performance of Ethereum-based tokens (NWSET100), Large caps (NWSL100), and Coins (NWSCo100). Ether has been the best-performing during the previous thirty days (+22.14%).
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 14 months ago. The Percentage Change Marks on the chart show that NWST1100 lagged behind W1Dow by 55.4% over the last 12 months, while this year, NWST1100 was 16.5% higher. The blue curve is the average index price during the previous twelve months. We can see that the NWST1100 spot price is 31.1% 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 31.1% loss today. However, if we bought one NWST1100 every day in the previous six months, purchases are a bargain and could soon be highly profitable.
*The box in the middle of the chart shows the original NWST1100 price; at the bottom is W1Dow.
Indices Revision 1-13-2023
The Bi-weekly revision updates the amount of each asset publicly available and any additions and deletions from the indexes. FTX Token and Gala improved their ranking; they were added to NWSL100 and deleted from NWSM200; GateToken and IOStoken were deleted from NWSL100. The new mid-caps are Gitcoin, SuperRare, DAO Maker, etc. Additions and deletions for the other indices from the family are available in each index presentation.
We gauged the Gala (GALA) 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 GALA has shown that GALA was more potent over the last two months. GALA has beaten NWSL100 by 10.8% during the previous ten weeks. First, let’s compare the GALA green area graph with the index (orange area graph) while observing the correlation graph. The correlation graph explains the strong correlation (Pearson’s correlation coefficient = 0.76). 95% of the time, it was moving in the same direction as the NWSL100; however, it has been a good 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 examine 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.
