May has been the harshest month so far this year with a constant and intense bear market pulling the Bitcoin down to pre-2021 bull run levels. 12th May witnessed the BTC dip down to as low as $26,500, the last time the cryptocurrency saw the same value was in December 2020!

As mentioned in our last monthly signal results post for April, the gradual slowdown of the market was only calm before the storm. What we saw in May was a bloodbath, and little do we know what June holds! Although these are trying times, there is no better time to invest in crypto (buy the dip folks) or to test our signal providers’ mettle.

Before we continue to see evaluate our top crypto signal providers‘ performances, let’s just take a minute and see what really happened in May, and why? Experts suggest it was all a combination of rising interest rates and inflation, plus the ongoing economic uncertainty from the Russian invasion that fuels investors’ fear of investing in risky assets. It’s no wonder that the market’s red candles have translated into trading signals’ performances.

Rate & comment on the providers!

As you’d expect from a high-quality signal provider, Universal Crypto Signals has retained its #1 spot again but misses its trademark 100% win rate. But you won’t fail to notice how few trades they’ve issued this month. But since they’ve maintained a pretty good success rate, you can’t really complain in this market!

In a MAJOR, MAJOR upset, 4C-Trading has literally risen from the dead. They ranked last for several months now, but to see them on the second spot, that too in May, really makes you believe miracles happen. We appreciate their performance, spirit, and bravery as they gave out the most signals than any other provider. With a whopping 49 trades, you could even crown them the #1 provider for May.

Fat Pig Signals have lost the third spot and fall down several ranks. They are replaced by VCT who have an average win rate of 62% for their margin and spot signals.

Monthly Signal Results

Universal Crypto Signals
1) Universal Crypto Signals
  • Telegram Signals
  • Bitmex Signals

Universal Crypto Signals have a strong habit of ranking #1. Be it a bull run or the scariest crash, they don’t like leaving their throne. The folks behind UCS have retained their top rank ever since the year began, reassuring users that they will not let them down.

Their very low number of trades may raise a few eyebrows. They only issued five trades in the whole month. That calls for a lot of patience if you’re one of their subscribers, but patience is the name of the game!

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.

2) 4C-Trading
  • Telegram Signals

If you’re a frequent reader of our monthly signal performance reports, you might not believe your eyes to see 4C-Trading take the runners-up spot. This signal provider was a bank bencher in our monthly signal results post for many months but has made a huge jump from a win rate of 41% to 63% in May.

The most remarkable thing about their improvement is that they got here with the most number of trades in the month. With a total of 49 trades, 4C-Trading leads from the front. You seriously have to appreciate their spirit and bravery to trade like this in a market where the best-performers failed to issue more than a handful of signals.

Verified Crypto Traders
3) Verified Crypto Traders
  • Telegram Signals
  • Bitmex Signals

Verified Crypto Traders‘ Margin and Spot Signals’ have performed reasonably well. Their Margins channel performed better with a 63% win rate compared to VCT Spot which had a 57% win rate. With an average win rate of 62%, VCT has re-entered the top 3.

4) CoinCodeCap

With an average win rate of 58%, CoinCodeCap trading signals have performed well. To have a win rate above 50 in a bear market like May is an achievement in itself. CoinCodeCap Margin has a win rate of 60% with 23 trades while their Spot channel was successful 54% of the time with 22 trades.

  • Telegram Signals
  • Bitmex Signals
Fat Pig Signals
5) Fat Pigs Signals
  • Telegram Signals
  • Bitmex Signals

Fat Pig Signals fall from glory. This is the first time in a long while they have ranked so low, and really, we can’t blame them for it. They issued a meager four trades in the month out of which only two were profitable. They ranked third last month with a win rate of 75% so you could see it as a major deterioration in performance. Let’s see if they make a comeback in June.

Not to mention, they also have the lowest number of trades this Month, which is also something you may want to look into.

Sublime Traders
6) Sublime Traders
  • Telegram Signals
  • Bitmex Signals

Sublime Traders had displayed improvement in April, ranking in the fifth position last month. They have only fallen by a rank with an average win rate of 44% compared to last month’s 57.5%.

Onward BTC
7) OnwardBTC
  • Discord Signals

OnwardBTC were on a good improvement run but that came to a halt this month as their win rate falls to 39%. There’s a stark contrast from April’s 63% so they’ll have to reassess where they went wrong.

Final Thoughts on Signal Results May

May was a really tough month for all financial markets, crypto, stock, or forex. That said, such difficult times are only good for testing signal providers. With most of our partners scoring win rates above 50%, we believe it’s hard evidence of how well-established and credible they are with their signals.
