Exactly one year ago, on Jan. 9, 2021, Cointelegraph launched its subscription-based data intelligence service, Markets Pro. On that day, Bitcoin (BTC) was trading at around $40,200, and today’s price of $41,800 marks a year-to-year increase of 4%. An automated testing strategy based on Markets Pro’s key indicator, the VORTECS
How can I get my 20,000% a year?
The short answer is – you can’t. Nor can any other human. But it doesn’t mean that crypto investors cannot massively enhance their altcoin trading game by using the same principles that underlie this eye-popping ROI.
The figure in the headline comes from live testing of various VORTECS
Upon detecting a historically bullish arrangement like this one in, say, SOL’s real-time data, the algorithm will assign the asset a strong VORTECS
In order to get a sense of how the model performs, starting from day one the Markets Pro team live-tested a number of hypothetical trading strategies based on “buying” all assets that cross a certain VORTECS
These transactions were executed in a spreadsheet rather than an exchange (hence no fees to eat off the gains), 24/7, and involved complex algorithmic rebalancing to ensure that at any given moment all assets that hit a reference Score are held in equal shares in the portfolio. In short, following these strategies was something only a computer could do.
The winning strategy, “Buy 80, Sell 24 hours” entailed buying every asset that reached the Score of 80 and selling it exactly 24 hours later. This algorithm yielded a hypothetical 20,573% of gains over one year. Even among other humanly impossible strategies, it is an outlier: the second-best one, “Buy 80, Sell 12 hours,” generated 13,137%, and number three, “Buy 80, Sell 48 hours,” yielded a “mere” 5,747%.
Down to earth
What these insane numbers show is that the returns that high- VORTECS
These look much more modest, don’t they? However, if you think of it, the picture that these averages paint is no less powerful than the mind-blowing hypothetical annual returns. The table demonstrates robust positive price dynamics after high Scores, averaging across all types of assets and in all market situations that occurred throughout the year.
The trend is unmistakable: tokens that hit VORTECS

In this sense, rather than trying to follow the complex “Buy 80, Sell 24 hours” algorithmic strategy (which is, again, a futile exercise), real-life traders could maximize their fortunes by buying at higher Scores and holding for longer times.
A separate stream of internal Markets Pro research looked at whether some coins are more prone than others to exhibit historically bullish trading conditions before dramatic price increases. This turned out to be the case, with tokens like AXS, MATIC, AAVE and LUNA leading the pack in terms of the most reliable positive price dynamics following historically favorable setups. Overall, the majority of frequent high-VORTECS
After a full year in operation, these disparate pieces of quantitative evidence – the mind-bending ROIs of algorithmic live-testing strategies, high-VORTECS
Obviously, a favorable historic outlook, captured by a strong VORTECS
