LINK/ETH Growth Alpha
How does it work?
The LINK/ETH Growth Alpha set is a semi-systematic strategy that combines the use of technical indicators including bollinger bands and RSI to to generate a signal when the model considers LINK to be overpriced or underpriced versus ETH. The strategy relies fundamentally on the systematic signals from the model.
LINK exhibits higher volatility than ETH and provides a good asset to trade against in search of increasing ETH holdings. While still positively correlated, the correlation between the pair is relatively low compared to the larger cap cryptocurrencies.
The strategy also includes a discretionary element. This allows position sizing to be decided when signals are generated. The allocation will be decided based on the order and type of the signals generated in addition to assessing key technical levels. Positions are likely to be gradually allocated from one asset to another, however, faster allocations are permitted depending on the signals generated and manager discretion. The manager is permitted to add to the positions as neccessary, providing the fundmental signals from the model are adhered to.

Back Test Performance Data
Full Back Test Results: Back Test Performance
Key findings from the back test:
13,675% gain over ETH for the total back test period. 1 ETH would have resulted in 136 ETH in 2.5 years.
At least 22 trades. In reality it is likely to be far more than this due to the scaling in and out of positions.
31% drawdown in ETH terms
IMPORTANT: Back-tested performance does not guarantee similar future performance. Future performance may be worse than the back test suggests.
This strategy will be exposed to cryptocurrency prices 100% of the time. This means if cryptocurrency prices fall, the sets USD value will also fall. There is no hedge against USD value in this set, unlike our ETAS or ETA sets. The goal of the set is to accumulate more ETH regardless of the USD value of ETH.
