~ Trading Signals for BitMEX, Binance
This review is not easy at all for me, as the complete offering is a Cynthia Rothrock Style Roundhouse Kick and difficult to handle in a single post. I am observing this group now almost a year, so almost since its inception and it is beautiful to see how they evolve, always progressing, never stagnating. They shared their internal roadmap with me and they tackle it point by point. So where to begin? I will split this review into three parts: Their Altcoin and BitMEX Signals Plan, their Elite Plan, as well as their one-of-a-kind education portal. Their Service is listed in both our Best Of Shortlists – for a reason. Yeah, you get great Crypto/BitMEX Signals with CryptoMedics, but frankly – the group is so much more…
Let’s dive into the world of CryptoMedics. Nurse, please!
Back in the days, one of our valued readers recommended us to check a channel, and we did that (real reader suggestions are always welcome) – it was CryptoMedics. For SmartOptions, we are always searching for the services that go the extra mile to provide something outstanding. We liked the content-rich character of the channel, so we got in contact with them and had been added to the closed beta of their premium channel, and yeah – it was different right from the beginning. While being there, we established an excellent partnership and let them release some of their valuable content on SmartOptions to give you a feeling. CryptoMedics have been actively investing in the crypto markets for a long time and observed it from different perspectives. Their paid channels (which have been launched the 1st of May ’18) features quite some unique features and offers more than just crypto trading signals.
The channel is not just boring crypto signals with entries and targets but is also filled with useful content. You get short but helpful lessons here and there and the important news. CryptoMedics is deep in the topic about cryptocurrencies and money itself – on a scientific level. One can see that with the series “The Evolution of Money” which they contributed generously to our website.
Basically there are two plans:
- The BitMEX & Binance Bundle
- Signals for BitMEX (leveraged) and Binance (unleveraged Altcoin Signals)
- Twitch Live Streams
- 24/7 Personal Guidance and Support
- The Elite Plan
- Gem List
- Extensive Portfolio Consultation and Optimization
- The BitMEX & Binance Bundle
- Coin Listing Bot
- Arbitrage Bot
- Fundamental Analysis
- Weekly Webinars
- Technical Analysis on Demand in the Member Chat
- Their complete Trading Course Portal (value: $999) is included if one takes the 1-year Elite membership.
CryptoMedics Altcoin Signals Review
The Binance signals are served per the Telegram Cryptomedics Bot, which manages your membership. Signals are called CTA (Call to Action) at Cryptomedics. Incoming signals look like this and are automatically updated by the bot, which is very convenient, as you have always up-to-date information. It looks like this:
The 5-10 crypto trading signals per week don’t look much, but it is the overall package you get here. It is critical that traders usually tend to overtrade and CryptoMedics want to avoid this mistake for their users. The calls are very selected to only valuable ones with high reliability. The given altcoin signals (which are mostly based on a mix of technical analysis and fundamentals). Head Trader for the Altcoin department is Jakov, a seasoned crypto trader who knows his stuff very well (he published the Weekly Open Strategy on SmartOptions a while ago) – 100% accuracy months are not rare with his trades, but also his companion Alexander comes with nice altcoin trades. Two traders at your fingertips here, but there are even more for BitMEX signals.
However, the thing you are interested the most is the accuracy right? And it is very good for both kind of signals. CryptoMedics has been three times in a row provider of the month, back in the days when we calculated the profit into the results. This means they mostly trade the broader ranges and profits, but still they adopt to the markets. If they trade in tight ranges in general, they also go for scalps and take whatever the market gives them.
Often you get signals which you
They had a time where they refrained from Altcoin trades but came back with double force. Right now we look at 100% accuracy months – the team did a great job. With an overall accuracy of 80.84% since September ’18, they do way more than just a rock-solid job for the Binance signals.
CryptoMedics BitMEX Signals Review
Cryptomedics is a well-known channel for special information nobody else has, as well as for great technical analysts. These guys definitely know what they are doing and have quite a big team to deliver some seriously good stuff. Their Elite channel was the only chance to get into their margin channel until now, but recently they opened it, along with their altcoin signals in a bundle for lower budgets. So besides the BitMEX signals, you also get their valuable altcoin signals as well, which we reviewed in the paragraph above. For their customers they have prepared documents and webinars ready to make sure no one does stuff on BitMEX, they do not understand. Very good level of education, which is an important spot for Cryptomedics (SmartOptions wrote with CryptoMedics the BitMEX Guide in collaboration). The channel also comes often with general Bitcoin strategy updates – how to react to the recent ongoing things, how to be prepared for eventualities.
The trader team for leveraged trading has Jonas, Alexander, and Jakov in charge and these guys truly rock it with their signals. Also the head of education, Hendo, offer signals from time to time. Personally, I fancy the cold, rational trades by Jonas as my favorite. They offer pretty great margin calls with exact instructions of what to do and where to buy in. The entries come in a staggered manner but the ranges are often happily reasonable. They also trade alts on BitMEX, but honestly, it doesn’t matter, they just kill it there, no matter what they touch! They have a nice set of great traders in their stack, which will give you much more than just simply buy and sell signals. They offer the traders also very good education, taught along with the signals. Their trader XHB called the short when Bitcoin hit an all-time high, he even called it to go down to the 3k area where it is right now – and got banned from several groups for publicizing his opinion. He is your guy for long-term recommendations. Their trader Jonas is a fantastic day trader, a math guy that really knows his shit and is in the trading game for a very long time – way before Crypto was a thing for the masses. Jakov and Alexander are their newest addition to the team and they post very elaborate signals with a heavy emphasis on the education factor. Jakov is also in charge of live streams and live trades with the clients, hosts webinars and Twitch sessions. The signals are often updated while running as the traders seem to have stopped sleeping, giving you the best possible returns. GREAT stuff that makes me really rave about them!
The signals come with technical analysis and most often with an explained reasoning right after, also the trading style (like day trade or swing trade) is mentioned. Basically, they offer three kinds of signals:
- Swing Trades
- Planned Swing Trades
The third one of the three is all about pre-planned scenarios to play longer and bigger swings on BitMEX. You just allocate the funds, set the trades and forget about them – and one morning when you wake up and check your account – pling – trades are active and running nicely (my experience so far).
Furthermore, they developed a really good sheet on Google Docs which lets you calculate the sizing for each position to stay in line with perfect risk management. This, in conjunction, with being “SIGNAL PROVIDER OF THE MONTH” for the third time in a row makes Cryptomedics a solid choice.
The CryptoMedics Elite Plan
The Elite Plan is the heart piece of the Cryptomedics universe and aims for the investors beneath the crypto audience. Here is everything about long-term investments. The Elite membership itself is a long-term investment. The big Cryptomedics team covers several Fundamental Analysts which dissect crypto projects on a level like managed funds would do it before they invest into something for their clients. They provide very detailed fundamental analysis’ for the projects they add to their long-term list. The Elite plan contains a very well-researched Gem list, that contains the stuff you want to buy and hold. Yeah, everyone is a gem hunter and shills dirt to the masses, but who can look back on several MASSIVE successful picks like for example ZIL and HOT (two of their gems they shared with us for publication, LONG before they had hype). Elite Members can always request a technical analysis for the gem list to get good entry points.
The Gem list is one thing, but when you start your elite plan, you will likely come with an active portfolio already. For Elite Members they have a Portfolio Analysis service which will go through your portfolio on a very deep level, they tell you what to kick out at which price, where to rebalance with other coins, how to buy in the gem list and help you to build a polished portfolio step by step.
The Elite Plan also contains several bots, like a very advanced coin detector for exchanges. This listing bot pops up and tells you when a new coin is going to be listed at a specific exchange. Elite members knew it pretty early when Coinbase listed XRP for example. The other bot is an Arbitrage bot which scans several exchanges for price differences which one could try to exploit.
So the Elite Package is more for investors than for (day) traders, but often people catch fire once the success rolls in. OK, the Altcoin and Margin Trading plan is already included so they have the signals and could use them, but furthermore, the damn good trading course by Hendo is included in the 1-year memberships of Elite and that’s a great deal – but more on that later.
Signal Examples & The Results
Binance Signal Example
Altcoin Example (without leverage)
And the outcome of the signal above:
BitMEX Signal Example
The results by CryptoMedics are doubtless good and if go carefully through their trades, you will find evidence that real pros are issuing the calls. In 95% of the cases you will find a great risk:reward like in the example above.
You will also find that each of the trader team has its own signature moves, the trades have a DNA. They respect the BTC dependance mostly and if you look the March results, for example, you will notice they go for smaller gains on their Binance trades when their analyst team smells a big destructive move, which could hurt Altcoin trades. Better safe than sorry, that could be a motto of CryptoMedics, a channel that values capital protection more than like the most. Slower but safer growth, steady growth with a great hit rate – these are the results to expect from their Altcoin & BitMEX bundle. For the ELITE package, well early members have bought HOT, ZIL, BNB to name just three at dirt cheap prices…
The Trading Course (Education Add-On)
The trading course by they Community Manager / Trader / Head of Education HENDO is very well done and covers all the important topics when it comes to trading and especially the didactics of the learning process. Here is an informational bit about the course designer:
Retired in 2017 and while being a part time trader for years Hendo decided to fully focus on trading at the end of 2017, both for the competitive aspect in trading and because of interest dating back as far as 15 years. Armed with private mentoring from professionals he met in corporate and a clear roadmap of what educational material he wanted to take Hendo dived fully into the markets. He became profitable 2 years prior to going full time, but really started opening positions daily after initial retirement. After a year of trading he decided to “give back” through creating an educational trading course. Mostly out of willingness to help other people since he accomplished his own goals at that point. Taken from the Course Website
Here is the complete syllabus of the course:
01 Trading Mindset – 6 Videos
02 Trading Style and Risk Management – 4 Videos
03 Journaling and Improvements – 3 Videos
04 Support and Resistance – 5 Videos
05 Candlesticks – 2 Videos
06 Price Action – 11 Videos
07 Trends and Channels – 3 Videos
08 Chart Patterns – 1 Videos
09 Indicators – 6 Videos
10 Fibonacci – 2 Videos
11 Getting Started – 2 Videos
12 Putting It All Together – 5 Videos
13 CryptoMedics Webinars – 11 Videos !free!
14 Random Bits and Pieces – 5 Videos !free!
15 The Free Bits of Profitable Trading Knowledge – 9 Videos
16 Daily (and past) Market reviews and Trades – 1 Video
The videos all come in decent quality. The sound is ok, not top-notch but you understand everything without crackles and stuff. The course is put together with many powerpoint like sheets but also with live trading examples. Hendo explains much stuff directly on the charts, and this will create quite some AHA effects, teaching you what happens right in front of you.
There are several highlights within this course and also several very practical excerise which could make the money of the course back pretty fast if you apply them right. My favorite lessons of this course have been:
- S2P4 Advanced Risk Management
- Why don’t you use Price Action (Full strategy)
- S12P4 Trading gains
- Chart patterns VS Price action
- A Beginners friendly way of entering a trade
All in all a really complete course that teaches the much more than just the basics of support and resistance. It is indeed a very good base to learn trading. But, as with every course, you have to keep in mind that you are not just a opened brain, where you can pour knowledge in. You have to view the videos, put some time into the understanding and especially the transferring. The success with this course lies in the transfer – you MUST take action and try the things you saw on your own. Support has you covered, so just use it and ask them lots of questions!
If you are interested in a well-structured trading course, register here and see if you like the freebie sessions. But carefully, don’t purchase the course right away, if you plan a yearly ELITE membership, as it is included.
Well, the support was one of the best we’ve seen in Telegram Crypto Land. Their chat rooms are pretty busy and their big and motivated team contributes to a great support service.
One of the team is always around and they are always willing to help. They are always laid back and relaxed and will give you their best advice for sure.
What makes this Channel unique?
CryptoMedics is a unique channel, hence it is listed in both of our shortlists. They are quite different from the most you can find on Telegram as they take their job very seriously. It is an incorporated company and they do act like one. The signals are very good, no question. But the inside knowledge, the very in-depth research on projects (for their Elite channel) is one of a kind. Before they add a project to their gem list before they recommend an ICO – they often visit the projects in real life – I found that in no other channel.
Besides this great package they offer, they have one point which is very unique: their access to information, only a minority has. We can’t go deeper on this one here, but they are VERY WELL CONNECTED and can deliver news very early. One example, they posted some news about Ripple way before I was able to find it anywhere else, so one would be well-positioned to catch some great profits with the recent run-up. Another unique feature is the technical analysis on demand: you have a team of traders you can tag in their telegram channel to analyze the charts for you on an asset you define. All in all I am really happy to be member of the ELITE club as the service pack provided is impeccable: Winning Bitmex signals, a few very selected Altcoin signals, Education all around on a very high level of quality, long-term Bitcoin updates that give you an edge for your crypto investment, technical analysis on demand, Webinars, Live Trading sessions – this is a fantastic complete package.
While the trades by CryptoMedics are really safe shots, the targets are often set quite low. This used to be different in the past. Sure, there are trades aiming for nice profits, but the majority is in the 10-30% range. As said in the post, this happens to derisk the trades in a risky environment. As soon as the markets turn to more stable and broader ranges, this surely will change again. It is difficult to list this a negative point as you really cannot compare Cryptomedics to the other channels as they adapt to the market very much. Three months ago, when the markets have been more active, you got updates on the trades on a very special level, tweaking your profits to the max while educating you about the trades.
Customer Insights Review
The user Vu is a long-term member of the CryptoMedics Elite plan and surely saw their work long enough to have an elaborate opinion. We secretly asked him, how satisfied he is with CryptMedics and if he wants to contribute his own small review. So here it is:
Back in 2017, I was rambling around Telegram groups to explore the emerging market. Then in Jan, 2018, a guy recommended me to join CryptoMedics. At first, I was curious what makes CryptoMedics different from other, how CryptoMedics can help people make money, etc. However, I didn’t care about CM too much as the drop from $20,000 has kept me busy crucifying myself for buying at the top. Then, when BTC dropped down 6k, I started joining their service to improve my earning. I didn’t trust them much at the beginning but after a few convos in the free chat, they gain some of my trust.
In the first month, the group didn’t do well in trading but the best thing about the group is they are extremely supportive and helpful. Unlike many groups, you can personally request their traders and FA analysts to help you. Additionally, XHB, the first CM trader called out something crazy like 3k BTC scenario when it was at 10k. I didnt believe it but he did and he was right! On a side note, CM is the first team to discover Holochain, a gem which made an x35 ROI (in ETH) since May, 2018.
The next phase
After a few months, the team made various changes which replaced the initial appearance. The group now has bot to help people with trading and educative materials. Additionally, they hire new traders as well as customer support. More calls are sent out and hit targets more than ever. In the next few months, I boosted my earning by 50% thanks to their Binance and Bitmex calls. Many people has asked me why their result sheet look different from my earning. The answer is I’m a risk-adverse guy so I tried limiting the risk as small as I can. I don’t want to make 200% like some random guys did in other groups. It’s extremely risky to do so if you keep chasing after those greedy number. Also, thanks to Hendo, I started trading on my own during this period. At first, I didn’t do well at first but I tried following Hendo’s advice and luckily, I minimized my loss to 8%.
The current phase
At the moment, my portfolio is up 150% from the initial capital. The result is the combination of self-trading and CM signals. Many people are unhappy in this market if they only make 2.5x (Seems like everyone is too spoiled) but personally, I’m happy with it. I want a long-term profit not those 10x or 100x short-term profit. As some geniuses said: “Consistency is the key to success” not those short term earning.
Many people are too scared to subscribe to a paid service like CM, especially in this unregulated market where PND groups are more attractive compared to CM. I will guarantee you one thing which is once you join CM, you will love it more than any other groups. The team is extremely supportive and helpful and open to critisms. You can question about their result sheets as many times as you want without being banned.
1. Signal accuracy:
+ Pros: Initially, the group didn’t do well due to having only 1 trader. However, that issue have been solved as there are 5 traders in the team now. All of them constantly scan the market to identify trading opportunities so you won’t have to worry much about the calls. On a side note, you can pick one trader and ask anything you want as long as it related to trading (fx, crypto, stock, etc).
+ Cons: Trading is risky game. That is a sure. I ensure you that no group have 100% accuracy including CM. Sometimes, many CTAs hit stoploss but you shouldn’t worry much about the loss if you followed their risk management advices properly.
2. Trading education:
+ Pros: Each CM traders has their own style of trading. Hendo, Tyler, Alexader, Jonas and XHB all use different trading strategies so you can ask them about how they analyze chart and manage risk. Additionally, Hendo provides an abundant amount of trading webinars which is great for those who want to trade by themselves. Hendo will teach you a lot about trading including strategies, risk management, price action, indicators, etc. He also has a huge amount of legit trading books (books that work) for members. If you are new to the CM, just join the free chat, ask anything trading and watch their free webinars. I’m sure you will like it.
+ Cons: I have no idea what kind of cons does CM have. They provide a huge amount of trading strategies which means if some strategies don’t work for you, you can always pick another.
3. Fundamental Analysis:
+ Pros: The team constantly scan the market for potential high ROI project which is great. You will personally receive FA analysis from them and always able to ask them about the projects you want to invest it. Mind you, the team only filter out shitcoins which means the buying decision is still up to you.
+ Cons: Analyzing the fundamental of crypto projects are extremely risky. Why? Because there are no financial statements! At the moment, most crypto projects do not have financial reports or the like so it impossible to know whether they are operating profitably or not. Therefore, CM team can only rely on what they know about the project including the technology, the team, tokenomic, whitepaper, personal contact to the project team, etc. They did have bad gems in the past but I don’t mind as trading already profit me a lot.
4. Customer support:
+ Pros: Extremely supportive, helpful and friendly. Both Hendo and Conrad will constantly check out Elite members to identify any issue occurred. Additionally, the two are available 24/7.
+ Cons: None.
You can verify the review with on Telegram with Vu himself.
CryptoMedics team operates in the old-fashion style which means they rely on the quality over quantity. The group consists of smart and professionals coming from various background including trading, marketing, binary executive, journalist, etc. They are not the critisms-adverse type so feel free to ask them anything in their free chat. The free chat is a great place for discussing the crypto market as they not restrict anything except spams and shillers.
Customer Insights Review #2
A second review has been contributed by another very satsified member Here is the review by “Samo”:
I have been a member of CryptoMedics almost from the beginning when there were around 200 of us crypto warriors. I am still their member for a reason. Awesome ROI, TAs, FAs, and gems are one thing but the education level and depth are incomparable to what I had a chance to see in supposedly similar groups. One of the main problems of crypto traders is no or bad risk management. This is where CryptoMedics CTAs shine because their calls minimize the risk of an investment to as low as possible. Slow and steady gaining is their philosophy. Here you’ll not just find experienced traders and analysts but, what matters the most to me, also get the 24/7 support, insights and directives from them. If you join CryptoMedics Elite there are no stupid questions, the only stupid thing is to have none! 😉
You can contact the reviewer on telegram with the handle: @samurai007
CryptoMedics is one of my all-time favorites. You might have figured that from writing. It is like this for a reason: I like if someone dares to do things in a different way and I value it if someone takes things seriously and therefore goes the extra mile, BEFORE recommending stuff to the public. Cryptomedics hired professional traders, that give very reasonable trade suggestions with great Risk:Reward and guidance on the way through the targets. I can#t say what fascinates me the most about Cryptomedics. I guess it is the professional way, the constant progress of the channel which makes it a completely different experience than the most you will find on Telegram. Great Calls, Great Education, A-Grade Support and Community Management, or the research that takes things deeply seriously – this is the mix I really like and value.
Their Bitmex, as well as their Binance Signals, are ultra successful, so they use it as a vehicle to grow your BTC stack over there, garnered with a few selected Gem buys here and there, which are mostly winners in the long run. If you want to signup for altcoin signals alone, I would consider a channel from the above. If you want to use the bear market for building a GREAT portfolio along with their fantastic and often updated gem list, the Elite membership is for you – these guys will get you prepared with the right altcoin portfolio for the next bull run.
For both, the BitMEX and the Altcoin channel, you will have months with smaller growth and – once the markets allow it again – months with very impressive growth. And this is a good thing, as it tells us that CryptoMedics cares about capital protection in the first place.
