Bitcoin Sentiment Based Trading Strategy

Social Market Analytics (SMA) publishes real time Twitter based sentiment for nearly 300 crypto currencies including Bitcoin.  To view Bitcoin sentiment values and 35 other commodities in real time, go to the CME Active Traders website.   Twitter based sentiment has proven to be strongly predictive for Bitcoin and other commodities.

Today we will review a sentiment-based Z-Score strategy to generate profitable trades for Bitcoin.  This is similar to traditional standard deviation band strategies calculated with price.

When Twitter volume from certified investors is abnormally high use the sentiment of the abnormally large conversation to select entry points.  Strategy overview is below:
