      Crypto Fear & Greed Index Over Time

      This is a plot of the Fear & Greed Index over time, where a value of 0 means "Extreme Fear" while a value of 100 represents "Extreme Greed".

      Why Measure Fear and Greed?

      The crypto market behaviour is very emotional. People tend to get greedy when the market is rising which results in FOMO (Fear of missing out). Also, people often sell their coins in irrational reaction of seeing red numbers. With our Fear and Greed Index, we try to save you from your own emotional overreactions. There are two simple assumptions:

      Extreme fear can be a sign that investors are too worried. That could be a buying opportunity.When Investors are getting too greedy, that means the market is due for a correction.

      Therefore, we analyze the current sentiment of the Bitcoin market and crunch the numbers into a simple meter from 0 to 100. Zero means "Extreme Fear", while 100 means "Extreme Greed". See below for further information on our data sources.

      We are gathering data from the five following sources. Each data point is valued the same as the day before in order to visualize a meaningful progress in sentiment change of the crypto market. First of all, the current index is for bitcoin only (we offer separate indices for large alt coins soon), because a big part of it is the volatility of the coin price.

      Volatility (25 %)

      We’re measuring the current volatility and max. drawdowns of bitcoin and compare it with the corresponding average values of the last 30 days and 90 days. We argue that an unusual rise in volatility is a sign of a fearful market.

      Market Momentum/Volume (25%)

      Also, we’re measuring the current volume and market momentum (again in comparison with the last 30/90 day average values) and put those two values together. Generally, when we see high buying volumes in a positive market on a daily basis, we conclude that the market acts overly greedy / too bullish.

      Social Media (15%)

      While our reddit sentiment analysis is still not in the live index (we’re still experimenting some market-related key words in the text processing algorithm), our twitter analysis is running. There, we gather and count posts on various hashtags for each coin (publicly, we show only those for Bitcoin) and check how fast and how many interactions they receive in certain time frames . A unusual high interaction rate results in a grown public interest in the coin and in our eyes, corresponds to a greedy market behaviour.

      The ups and downs of the crypto market can be quite steep and it's not rare for investors to get discouraged. The Crypto Fear and Greed Index makes an assessment of the dominant mood on the market, so the psychological factor is also taken into account.

      The atmosphere of Fear, for example, drives many investors to panic and sell their crypto assets. This is a potential buying opportunity.

      While the times of Greed, on the contrary, foster a certain recklessness in investment decisions. Potentially, they indicate that the market will be down soon.

      Checking the index to find out where we currently stand psychologically is a good way to avoid common pitfalls and make wiser investment decisions – decisions that will pass the test of time.

      The volatile crypto market is in fact guided by the psychological currents running underneath it. So, how do we go about calculating the fear & greed in the air? The psychological backdrop of the crypto market finds its reflection in a number of mediums, from social media posts to Google Trends. The market itself, when interpreted in combination with data from those outside mediums, can tell us a lot about the investing environment. Our Fear & Greed Index takes into account all those factors and, assigning them respective weight, molds them into one unified result. These are the factors that make up the Fear & Greed index

      If you're about to make an investment decision, but are unsure just how much that decision is affected by the general atmosphere of Fear or Greed on the market, checking the index can be quite helpful.

      Fear Index era is all about selling, so valuable assets are sometimes "thrown out with the bathwater." In contrast, the Greed Index era is characterized by careless investments in assets the value of which is overblown.

      The Fear and Greed Index is just another tool to support your decision-making process.
