How to use OKEx data

Our OKEx market data helps you understand current market trends, forecast future price movements, identify volume spikes and liquidity, and find trading opportunities. It also provides the basis for both simple and sophisticated technical trading indicators, such as moving averages, Bollinger Bands, moving average convergence divergence (MACD), and the relative strength index (RSI), all of which help you determine market sentiment and price momentum to aid your decision-making. 

One important use of OKEx market data is in portfolio management. If you trade on OKEx, having access to fast, clean, reliable data from the exchange is paramount to the management of your portfolio. You need to quickly, easily, and accurately use this data to track your holdings, assess portfolio performance, and monitor position and overall risk. Also, the data enables you to strategically establish initial position sizes and add-ons, and determine when to rebalance, which is crucial to multi-position portfolios. Furthermore, our OKEx trading data can be used to create periodic performance reports, which enable you to analyze your trading system's strengths and weaknesses, and create performance benchmarks.

Another important way to utilize our OKEx market data is for the analysis of market sentiment. For instance, bid/ask order quantities reflect supply and demand dynamics and offer crucial insights into market sentiment. You can monitor these quantities to get a sense of market direction. As an example, an increase in bid quantities often indicates bullish sentiment and upward price pressure. Similarly, volume is a good sentiment indicator. Increasing volume in the direction of a price move often indicates gathering momentum and strength in the continuation of the move. Conversely, declining volumes can indicate that a move is running out of gas. For options, open interest tracks the total number of open (or outstanding) positions in a particular instrument, such as a Bitcoin call option. By analyzing open interest, you can assess the strength of the market; for instance, high open interest can indicate strong market participation and potential for price movements, while low open interest may signal a lack of market interest or activity.
