Using the Solana Drawdown Calculator

Follow these simple steps to use the tool:

  • Starting Date: Select a date to start your drawdown analysis. This could be the date you initially invested in Solana, or any other significant point in time.
  • Ending Date: Choose the date to end looking at drawdowns. (This tool is limited to historical data, so the ending date cannot be set to a future date, unfortunately!)
  • Calculate: If you hit this button, the tool will display the maximum drawdown in your date range, the largest drawdown period, and a dynamic chart illustrating Solana's price trajectory along with an overlaid visualization of drawdowns from previous highs.
  • Show Drawdowns: Unveil a detailed table of all significant drawdown periods by clicking this button. The table will present Solana's peak and trough values, corresponding dates, the percentage drawdown between the two, and the annualized daily volatility during each drawdown period. Note that the table only displays drawdowns lasting 30 days or more.

Understanding drawdowns is important for any investor seeking to evaluate the potential risks and volatility associated with their investments. These metrics measure the decline from peak to bottom, providing valuable insights into the potential downside exposure and overall volatility of your Solana investment.
