The Market Volatility & Liquidity module elevates your research with more sophisticated liquidity and volatility tools. This module contains visualizations and interactions for a project token’s price, volatility, and liquidity. We included data on CEX/DEX liquidity pairs and incorporated interactive elements that make it easy to drill into liquidity analysis. 

Price & Volatility

The Price & Volatility section shows the current token price and the 24 hour change. Beside the token price is the relative volatility index, or RVI.  The RVI measures the standard deviation of prices as they change over time, with values ranging between 0 to 100. If the RVI value is above 50, the volatility is to the upside and confirms a potential buy signal. Conversely, when the value is below 50, the volatility is to the downside, which confirms a potential sell signal.

The token price and RVI are charted on a graph with the option to toggle between time periods so you can see how price and RVI correspond over time (7 days, 14 days, 30 days, 60 days, 90 days, and 1 year).

DEX Volume & Liquidity

The DEX Volume & Liquidity section shows total liquidity and daily volume for a token’s liquidity pairs.

  • Total Liquidity: the total liquidity of the token’s trading pairs across tracked DEXs (decentralized exchanges). 
  • Daily Volume: a measure of how much the token and its pair was traded in the last 24 hours across tracked DEX Liquidity Pairs.

Top DEX Liquidity Pairs & Activities 

The pie chart under DEX Liquidity Pairs & Activities shows the percentage breakout of a token’s daily trading volume across all tracked DEX Liquidity Pairs. The pie chart makes it easy to visualize which decentralized exchanges account for the majority of the trading activity.

It is possible to identify potential arbitrage opportunities by comparing the volume of trading across different decentralized exchanges. Arbitrage is the practice of buying an asset on one exchange at a lower price and then selling it on another exchange at a higher price, in order to profit from the price difference. By comparing the volume of trading across different exchanges, it is possible to identify situations where the price of an asset is significantly different on two different exchanges. The stacked bar chart to the right of the pie chart helps illustrate which DEXs account for the majority of the trading activity over time. View the breakdown across DEXs over a 7-day, 14-day, 30-day, or 60-day period.

Comparing the volume of trading across different exchanges can also provide insight into the overall level of interest in a particular token. If the volume of trading is high across many DEXs, it can indicate that there is a strong demand for the token, and if the volume of trading is low across exchanges, it may indicate a lack of interest in the token. This can be useful for investors who want to make informed decisions about which token assets to buy and sell.

Under the visualizations is a table that contains additional information on “Top DEX Liquidity Pairs”, “Top LP Holders”, “Top Added Liquidity”, and “Top Removed Liquidity”.

Top CEX Pairs & Activities 

Similar to the DEX Pairs & Activities section, CEX Pairs & Activities shows liquidity and trading activity for the token across all tracked centralized exchanges. There is also a pie chart and stacked bar chart graphic that helps visualize the breakdown of activity across CEXs.
