What Are Signals and Why Are They Useful?

The signals page within Arthur is a powerful tool that allows users to feel the pulse of the market straight from their portal or Telegram. There are a variety of signals available that provide information related to changing market conditions such as volume changes, price changes, arbitrage opportunities, or market cap changes. These signals aren’t intended to be direct calls for buys or sells, but rather to be used as a tool to stay on top of the wildly changing market.

Types of Signals

  • Price
  • Volume
  • Market Cap
  • Arbitrage

These are the four categories of signals available for users to set up. Each category has different types of signals that can be created. For example, users can create a signal for when the price of a coin changes based on USD value, or based on the percentage it increases. The same can be done with volume and market cap alerts, you can choose to be notified when volume reaches above or below a certain threshold or when they increase or decrease by a set percentage.

Understanding Signals 
Using the signal settings above, here is an example of how each would be triggered to provide an alert.
  1. The first signal is an example of an arbitrage signal for Bitcoin. When Bitcoin is 2% more expensive on Bitfinex compared to Binance, a notification would be sent to the user.
  2. The second signal is an example of a price increase signal in terms of USD. A notification would be sent to users once the price of Bitcoin on Bitstamp surpassed $7,500
  3. The third signal is an example of a price increase by percent signal. A notification would be sent once the price of Litecoin goes up by 1% or more within a 24 hour period using the price on CoinMarketCap.
  4. The fourth signal is an example of a volume increase signal by percent. A notification would be sent once once the 24 hour volume on Ethereum increases by more than .87% based on CoinMarketCap data.
  5. The fifth signal is an example of a volume alert signal, which will send a notification once the volume of DROP surpasses $500,000 based on CoinMarketCap.

How Can These Signals Be Useful?

Users can use these signals in a variety of ways. Users may choose to set price alert signals for a coin simply to stay informed of the changing price from within Telegram without having to navigate to a third party site. Volume increases may be useful to spot accumulation or distribution (the buying or selling of coins beyond normal amounts, indicating supply and demand shifts). Signals for abnormally high volume can be useful in alerting users that there may be some good news that is pushing investors into the market at a high rate, or some bad news that is causing investors to exit the market. Market cap alerts can be useful when tracking how a coin trends compared to the market as a whole.
