Do I need to be an expert on cryptocurrency trading?
We expect our customers to be savvy investors and traders who understand the risk of trading using any system, and particularly the risks of trading cryptocurrency. Please visit our Terms and Conditions for more details on the risks involved.
That said, you do not need to be a machine learning expert. We manage the machine learning and make the outputs easy to use and implement.
How much money should I use to trade?
This is your decision and each member is responsible for his or her own losses and gains. A general recommendation is to risk no more than you are comfortable losing. Individuals may also consider a portfolio approach with a percentage for holding and a percentage for trading.
What exchange should I use for trading?
We recommend choosing an exchange based on trust, cost, volume, and other factors. The Crypto-ML team uses Coinbase Pro and Binance. These are also the exchanges supported by our Auto Trade.

How often are BUY and SELL triggers generated?

How long are positions kept open?
In prior years, the average trade was open 23 days. While this will vary, Crypto-ML is not designed to be an intra-day or high-frequency trading system. Crypto-ML seeks to optimize profits, which includes minimizing costs and latency impacts.
Each coin trades at a different rate. We recommend viewing the Trade History in order to get a better feel for how the trades have played out in the past.
How is Crypto-ML better than buy-and-hold?
Buy-and-hold never locks in profits. So even if trading breaks even with buy-and-hold, trading locks in your profits. Though you may have experienced exceptional run-ups by holding, if the markets drop significantly, those profits you experienced were never realized. Trading turns paper into actual profits. In this way, Crypto-ML minimizes the stress of holding.
In addition to capturing profits and reducing stress, Crypto-ML has outperformed buy-and-hold. See Crypto-ML trade history for details.
How is Crypto-ML better than traditional technical indicators?
Traditional technical indicators generally provide mixed results, particularly in hectic markets (like crypto). Additionally, they are subject to interpretation, conflict with other indicators, and lag rather than predict.
Does Crypto-ML trigger losing trades?
Yes. Some trades may result in losses. However, losses are minimized and gains are allowed to run. Please visit Trade History for detailed results.
Can I view Crypto-ML trade history?
Yes, trade history is here.
Should I use stop losses?
Yes, stop losses are important. Crypto-ML provides Stop Loss Guidance.
- If you are on the Trader membership, you would enter your own stop losses when you enter your new trade.
- If you are on the Auto Trader membership, trades will be automatically closed for you.
What factors and data do the Crypto-ML models utilize?
The Crypto-ML models are proprietary and made up of highly-complex datasets and prediction pathways. Currently, each Crypto-ML model generates signals based on a series of seven embedded equations, five primary variables, and a proprietary data set.
How often are the models updated?
The crypto markets undergo constant change and flux. Accordingly, the Crypto-ML models are trained and evaluated every day. Machine learning is a continuous process.
Which cryptocurrencies are modeled?
Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, and Litecoin are available. New crypto will be added according to demand, statistical evaluation, and governance.
What are the limitations of Crypto-ML?
Any tool used to predict future outcomes relies on past data. Changes in market conditions, including, but not limited to, micro, macro, and global conditions, may invalidate existing models or cause exceptions for one or more days. Past performance is not an indication of future performance. Crypto-ML is to be used for informational purposes only. Each individual has unique risk tolerances and is responsible for their own investment decisions. Crypto-ML provides no warranties of any kind.
