Put More Money into Safe cryptos and Less Money into Risky cryptos

The Volatility Quotient, or VQ%, tells you how volatile a cryptocurrency is – in other words, how much room you can give a crypto in order to not get stopped out too early.

It tells you how much uncertainty or noise there is in your cryptos. More conservative cryptos like Bitcoin Gold have lower VQs (as of 12/6/2018 48.41%). More speculative / less certain cryptos like Pedity have higher VQs (as of 12/6/2018 95.00%). The lower the VQ, the more stable the movement of that crypto. Higher VQ percentages indicate the crypto is more volatile in its market moves over time.
