January 2022 was a rough month for the crypto market. BTC closed the first month of the year on what many claim to be the worst start to a year since 2018. Although January saw BTC fall to as low as $33,000, it was the same month that experienced its resistance as it bounced back to a stable trajectory.
The rest of the crypto market is known to follow BTC. Bitcoin, as well as the rest of the market, was covered in red for almost 65% of the month, and it was only the last ten days of January that the red started to recede and we could see greener charts by the end of the month.
In the crypto signals market, the recovery came as a breather as signal providers relaxed their hands and issued more signals as they did in December. While the number of signals has increased, all signals providers were not completely profitable. The maximum win rate was 80%.
January has also brought about a breakthrough at the top of the signal results page. CryptoLab broke into the top 3, ending the months-long sequence of the top 3 positions alternating between Universal Crypto Signals, Verified Crypto Traders, and Fat Pig Signals.
Rate & comment on the providers!
The long-standing reign of the top 3, UCS, Fat Pig Signals and VTC, has finally been broken. And it’s none other than CryptoLab, the Gem factory, to bring about this breakthrough. UCS has gained back its #1 spot after a rough December. Albeit having a lesser number of trades, UCS has the highest win rate of 80%.
CryptoLab is runners-up, following UCS closely at a 77% win rate. Fat Pig Signals lost the top rank and fell to the third spot in January. It has a weaker win rate of 60%, its lowest since last year. VCT has fallen out of the top 3, but it has issued much more signals than the top 3. VCT has kept its subscribers’ appetite for signals satisfied.
Monthly Signal Results
1) Universal Crypto Signals
Universal Crypto Signals has lived up to its reputation of being a high-quality source of crypto trading signals yet again. UCS has regained its #1 rank after losing it to Fat Pig Signals in December, and at a time when most other top signal providers are having a tough time.
This signal provider is known for its risk management, and its robust risk management is the reason why subscribers only got to see 10 trades during January. All in all, it was a pretty good performance by UCS in January, as always.
Beware of scammers trying to impersonate reputable signal providers’ admins! You might encounter a scammer impersonating Saviour from UCS, it’s better to confirm their official Telegram usernames before having any conversation.
This is the first time in a long time Crypto Lab has broken into the top 3 ranks in Smart Option’s monthly signal results. Like all top contenders, Crypto Lab kept a tight hand on signals in January and only issued 9 signals in the month.
3) Fat Pigs Signals
Fat Pig Signals have lost their hard-earned #1 signals spot. But still, their fall from glory wasn’t a very deep one as they’re still in the top 3. The bearish start of the year didn’t do them good as they end this month with the worst win rate they’ve had in a year or more.
4) Verified Crypto Traders
Verified Crypto Traders have a reputation of alternating between the second and third ranks in successive months, but this came to an unfortunate end in January. With the VCT Spot Trading performing just a tad better than their Margin Trading, the two have issued a lot more signals in January but with a lower win rate of 58 and 57% respectively.
5) Onward BTC
Onward BTC had the fourth rank in December’s signal results. In January, this signal provider has dropped to the fifth position with a slightly lower win rate at 53%. Let’s see how they will perform as the bear market comes to an end.
6) Sublime Traders
Sublime Traders have dropped to the sixth spot from last month. Sublime Spot signals have performed better than their Futures signals with 9% higher win rate. Still, Sublime Traders ride on the edge of profitability and loss with a 53% and 44% win rate.
4C-Trading has been struggling for the last few months. Their signal results in November were a meager win rate of 16%. They have only slightly improved since with a 35% win rate in December and 39% in January. They will have to notch their performance up to stay in the competition!
