Strong Up / Down Trend is based on altFINS’ own rating system for trends.  Its calculation is based on price and SMA crossovers.  A “Strong” trend rating indicates that the Up / Down trend is Strong across all three: Short, Medium, and Long Term Trends.

Moving Average (MA) cross-overs are powerful signals for assessing price trends.  There two types of crosses: MA cross and Price/MA cross.  This applies to both, Simple and Exponential Moving Averages (SMA and EMA).

MA cross occurs when a short-term MA crosses the long-term MA, either above (bullish, uptrend) or below (bearish, downtrend).  altFINS allows you to compare MAs.  For instance, you can find and track coins where 5-day SMA has crossed the 10-day SMA. You can also indicate by how much (%) is the 5-day SMA above or below the 10-day SMA. You can also combine multiple MA crosses (5/10, 5/20, 5/30, or 5/10, 10/20, 20/30, etc.) to strengthen the signal power of your screen.

Price/MA cross occurs when the price crosses an MA, either above (bullish) or below (bearish).  Since Price moves faster than a moving average (SMA, EMA), this type of cross typically occurs before an MA cross (like 5/10 days).  Hence, Price/MA cross is more sensitive and provides earlier indications but can also give more false readings for trend developments.

Strong Up / Down Trend (Short Term)

altFINS’ own rating indicating trends in the short-term price action.  Its calculation is based on price crossovers with SMA (5, 10, 20, 30, 50, 100, 200) and SMA (5) crossover with SMA (10, 20, 30, 50, 100, 200).  This works across all time frames (15m, 1h, 4h, 12h, 1d) and indicates if a trend is potentially forming (up or down).

Strong Up / Down Trend (Medium Term)

altFINS’ own rating indicating trends in the medium-term price action.  Its calculation is based on SMA (10) crossover with SMA (20, 30, 50, 100, 200) and on SMA (20) crossover with SMA (30, 50, 100, 200). This works across all time frames (15m, 1h, 4h, 12h, 1d) and shows if a trend is established (up or down).

Strong Up / Down Trend (Long Term)

altFINS’ own rating indicating trends in the long-term price action.  Its calculation is based on SMA (30) crossover with SMA (50, 100, 200) and on SMA (50) crossover with SMA (100, 200) and on SMA (100) crossover with SMA (200). This works across all time frames (15m, 1h, 4h, 12h, 1d) and indicates if a long-term trend is well

Strong Up / Down Trend and Oversold / Overbought

altFINS’ own rating indicating trends in the medium-term price action.  Its calculation is based on SMA (10) crossover with SMA (20, 30, 50, 100, 200) and on SMA (20) crossover with SMA (30, 50, 100, 200). This works across all time frames (15m, 1h, 4h, 12h, 1d) and shows if a trend is established (up or down).

Strong Up / Down Trend and Strong / Weak Ultimate Oscillator

Our trend rating is based on several Price/SMA and SMA/SMA crossovers on short-, medium- and long-term basis.

Ultimate oscillator measures momentum across three different timeframes, which results in less indicator volatility and fewer trade signals compared to other indicators that rely on a single timeframe. Values range between 0 and 100 (oversold if < 30 and overbought if > 70). Trading signals are generated when the price moves in the opposite direction as the indicator (bullish or bearish divergence).
