Machine Learning for Crypto Portfolio Management Case Study: Week 9

This was the ninth week of our case study that will evaluate the application of machine learning for portfolio management. The methodology for this study was first outlined in our previous article.

Each week, we will publish an update to highlight interesting events that took place over the last week, break down the performance metrics from the last week, and provide any changes that will be made to each portfolio.

As BTC continues to steal the show, Nomics has been able to maintain dominance with Shrimpy and the Smart Contracts Index in a close race for 2nd.

Shrimpy ML Strategy

The Shrimpy ML Strategy leverages the 7-day price predictions generated by the Shrimpy ML engine. These price predictions are then used to determine which assets should be placed into our portfolio for this week. Additional information regarding the methodology can be found in our previous article.

Shrimpy predictions left a lot to be desired this week, with most of the predictions actually performing negatively. RFOX was a sleeper pick and did most of the heavy lifting to bring this portfolio into profitability this week.

Additional information regarding the methodology can be found in our previous article.

The DeFi sector seems to be showing signs of life again. AVAX, FTM and XTZ all had great price action which puts this portfolio at 2nd for performance this week.

Additional information regarding the methodology can be found in our previous article.

When you consider that this portfolio contains a combination of almost all of the assets that did well in each of the other portfolios, it’s no surprise to see the Smart Contracts portfolio taking the top spot for performance this week and reclaiming the “First behind Nomics” mantle.

Conclusions

NFT’s are the current “big thing” and as such, portfolios that provide coverage in this sector are reaping the rewards. Concurrently, sectors that have begun to stagnate have started to see their value flowing into BTC as it approaches a new round of price discovery — and many newly flipped supports are being tested as a result. Meanwhile, Nomics and Shrimpy both have begun to show cracks in their prediction methodology. While we can’t predict the future, it’s exciting to see if Nomics and Shrimpy’s Machine Learning models can adjust to the new market conditions or if Indices will use this opening to make up for lost ground and really steal the show.
