Update: the predictions on the Member Dashboard are now for 6 hours in the future, not 24.
The dashboard displays a “6-hour price prediction” percentage:
In this sample, you can see that in 6 hours:
- BTC is expected to remain relatively flat.
- ETH is expected to move up by 2.03%.
- BCH is expected to drop by 3.13%.
Crypto price prediction calculation
The indicator shows the expected change in price by comparing the simple moving average (SMA) of the last 45 minutes to the 150-minute SMA overlaying 6 hours in the future.
The reason for this approach is the averages smooth out price fluctuations and deliver more consistent results, especially in the swing-trading time frames.
Note: There are many different ways to approach this, which you can review in our do-it-yourself Tutorial: Bitcoin Price Prediction with DIY Machine Learning in Excel.
