Crypto Correlation Matrix

To reduce the risk and find weakly interconnected cryptocurrencies, it is necessary to evaluate the cryptocurrency portfolio using the crypto correlation matrix.

Correlation can take values from +1 (positive) to -1 (negative).

A correlation of +1 means that the assets are moving in the same direction, if one grows by + 7%, then the second grows by + 7%, however, if one of the assets falls, the second doubles the fall, since the correlation is positive +1.

A correlation of 0 means that there is no relationship between assets.

A negative correlation of -1 means that prices move in the opposite direction.

Thus, negative correlation portfolios have a low risk, in contrast to positive correlation portfolios that have a high risk.

However, in reality, creating a portfolio with a correlation of -1 consisting of cryptocurrencies is quite difficult or almost impossible. Therefore, a weak positive correlation may be an acceptable result.
