These tokens saw the biggest trading volume pumps last week. How could traders benefit?

An uptick in tring volume is one of the key components of a digital asset’s healthy market outlook. It indicates both robust liquidity and a surge in fellow trers’ enthusiasm for the token. The relationship between the asset’s price and tring volume is a nuanced one: Volume spikes often trail strong rallies as more and more trers hop on the bandwagon in the hopes of a ride to the moon.

Yet, in some cases, it is surging tring volume that les to price appreciation. In such a scenario, getting alerted to anomalous tring activity around a token can help crypto investors to spot the early signs of an impending rally. Regardless of whether the tring volume spikes precede or follow the price action, the assets that exhibit unusual behavior on this key metric merit a closer look.

The five assets featured below showed the greatest week-to-week increases in tring volume last week and were featured in the Unusual Tring Volume section of Cointelegraph Markets Pro dashboard. In three cases out of five, anomalous upticks in tring volume foreshowed major price increases.

FRONT: Tring volume explosion following an exchange listing

FRONT, a token representing decentralized finance (DeFi) aggregator Frontier, topped the chart of last week’s tring volume movers chart with a 3041% increase on the heels of its listing on the Korean crypto exchange Bithumb. As evident in the graph, the Jan. 26 listing announcement h first triggered a price spike as the coin’s value almost doubled, soaring from $0.41 to $0.78 in less than six hours. FRONT’s tring volume followed the price dynamics closely, peaking the day after the announcement.

QuarkChain (QKC) saw two dramatic tring volume increases last week, the greater (+2862%) coming last and following the coin’s weekly price high. In a curious plot twist, there was also another, rather short-lived tring volume spike that came on Jan. 25 and preceded the price rally by roughly 18 hours.

WAVES: Price wave first, tring volume wave second

At the height of a tring volume momentum that came on Jan. 27, WAVES registered an 860% increase compared to the week before. The volume pump followed a sharp price increase as the token shot up from $8.39 to $11.38 in about five hours. Trer activity remained high even as the price began to correct.

LOOM: Short tring volume pump anticipates price peak

Loom Network’s (LOOM) tring volume vs. price chart looks similar to that of QKC above: A sudden and short spike in the tring volume coming several hours before the week’s peak price. What caused LOOM’s Jan. 25 tring volume explosion from around $5 million to upwards of $34 million (a 520% increase compared to the previous week) is anyone’s guess. What is certain is that over the next day LOOM’s price ded 14%, reaching the weekly high at $0.062.

OXY: Price and tring volume rise together

In the case of Oxygen (OXY), starting from the Jan. 24 afternoon, both the price and the tring volume lines embarked on upside trajectories, moving up beside each other. A peak tring volume of around $3.8 million, registered on Jan. 26, marked a 421% week-to-week increase. A weekly price peak near $0.49 followed in 12 hours.

Any single metric that shapes an asset’s market outlook can be uninformative on its own, yet it becomes much more useful when contextualized within a host of other variables that the VORTECS™ algorithm considers, such as price movement, social sentiment and tweet volume.
