But, if you’re a crypto investor or trader and are looking to manage your portfolio, we’ve got it covered for you; keep reading!
Tracking and Analyzing your Crypto Portfolio (Excel Template)
Cryptocurrency investors usually have a portfolio of cryptos varying from 3 to 20 and more because managing the portfolio requires a lot of effort, time, and energy and is even complicated. Having them managed all in an excel sheet along with your other investments makes it a lot less cumbersome, isn’t it? Well, that’s what marketxls is for, to make your investment journey easy and hassle-free.
You can analyze your portfolio and manage it with our template, which provides EOD data for your cryptos, risk-return metrics, charts, and graphs to get a visual summary.
The template has a sheet that provides a complete list of Cryptocurrency codes you can use to add to your portfolio analysis template to run the analysis.
The various portfolio ratios will be calculated as we input the codes. It calculates the Sortino Ratio, the CAGR, Maximum drawdown, Portfolio Beta, Volatility, Efficient Frontier chart, Sharpe ratio, and much more, giving you the power to see your portfolio as large fund managers do!
Let’s break down each parameter used in detail:
- Sortino Ratio
The Sortino ratio measures the risk-adjusted return for the portfolio. It differentiates harmful volatility from total overall volatility and uses the portfolio’s downside deviation instead of the total standard deviation of portfolio returns.
- Value at Risk
Value at Risk measures the level of financial risk of the portfolio for a specific time frame. It assesses the potential loss for the portfolio and the probability of the same, for, eg. A 5% one-month VaR of 1% representing a 5% chance of the asset declining in value by 1% during the one-month time frame.
- Portfolio Volatility
Volatility is a measure of risk. The portfolio volatility indicates how widely the total value of the portfolio appreciates or depreciates. Standard deviation and correlation among the stocks in the portfolio are two main elements of the risk in the portfolio.
CAGR or the Compound Annual Growth Rate measures the annual growth of the portfolio over a while. It measures how much you have earned every year during a given time frame.
- Portfolio Beta
It measures the portfolio’s systematic risk, which is equal to the weighted average of the beta coefficient of all the individual stocks in a portfolio.
- Treynor Ratio
Treynor Ratio determines how much excess return is generated for each unit of risk taken on by a portfolio. Excess return is the return earned in addition to the return earned by investment in risk-free security.
- Sharpe Ratio
The Sharpe ratio also measures the return per unit of risk taken. However, here the risk-adjusted return measured in Sharpe ratio is not just the systematic risk but the portfolio risk (i.e., σp)
- Maximum Drawdown
A maximum drawdown (MDD) is the maximum observed loss from a peak to a portfolio trough before a new peak is attained. Maximum drawdown is an indicator of downside risk over a specified period.
- Portfolio Efficient Frontier Chart
The efficient frontier of the portfolio is optimal portfolios that offer the highest expected return for a defined level of risk or the lowest risk for a given level of expected return. It plots the expected return on a portfolio of investments on the y-axis and its risk measured by its standard deviation on the x-axis.
The Crypto Portfolio Analytics Template Explained
The Cryptocurrency codes and their respective weight that you hold can be added to the cells. The list of crypto currency symbols are in the sheet “All Crypto Symbols.” As you can observe the necessary ratios will be calculated automatically once the cryptocodes and the weights have been added. The Efficient Frontier Graph and the Monthly returns is also automatically generated. The Wealth Index calculates the portfolio value of $10,000 invested in the beginning of the period over time.
