Put More Money into Safe Cryptocurrencies and Less Money into Risky Cryptocurrencies

The Volatility Quotient, or VQ%, tells you how volatile a cryptocurrency is.

It tells you how much uncertainty or noise there is in your cryptocurrencies.

More conservative cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin have lower VQs. More speculative / less certain cryptocurrencies like Dogecoin have higher VQs. The lower the VQ, the more stable the movement of that cryptocurrency . Higher VQ percentages indicate the cryptocurrency is more volatile in its market moves over time.

Note that we let you choose Latest Close or Latest Price for our VQ alerts. Latest price is based on 30-minute intraday pricing. Latest close represents the investment’s price from midnight UTC (7pm EST / 8pm EDT).
