    Crypto fear & greed index

    Before investing in the crypto market, it is important to completely understand the current market outlook in order to make the right investment decisions. Apart from some of the widely-used channels, the crypto fear & greed index also provides a nearly fool-proof way to understand the market momentum.

    The crypto fear and greed index oscillates between zero and hundred – with zero indicating extreme fear and bearish momentum and a hundred implies market overheating. The index has been steadily increasing in value since 22nd March – cementing a bullish outlook. At the time of writing, the crypto index stands at a value of 40 which suggests fear but more to the neutral side. If the current momentum is sustained then the index can soon be giving out an indication of strong bullishness.
