MCS | What is the Crypto Fear & Greed Index?


Greetings from MCS, the derivatives trading platform where traders ALWAYS come first.

If you are an active cryptocurrency trader, you would have seen the Crypto Fear & Greed Index at least once. So what does the Crypto Fear & Greed Index mean and how is it measured?


The table above shows the Bitcoin Fear & Greed Index of 86 as of November 26, 2020. Where the state is Extreme Greed, meaning many people are buying.

The Crypto Fear Greed Index is between 0 and 100 which is split into five intervals. It is divided into "Extreme Fear" from 0-25, "Fear" from 26-44, "Neutral" from 45-55, "Greed" from 56-74, and "Extreme Greed" from 75-100.

The fear stage is the stage in which investors feel the risk of the market, which means that the lower the index, the higher the sell sentiment. This is usually the segment that occurs in a bear market. Conversely, the greed phase is the period when prices rise and the sentiment about buying increases. In the case of extreme greed, it is the exponential section that usually appears in the bull market.

The above index is calculated with the ratio of Volatility 25%, Market Momentum/Volume 25%, Social Media 15%, Dominance 10% and Trends 10%. (Currently, <Surveys> which take up 15% is not being used)

The Fear & Greed Index in other words, demonstrates the current market in an index format.

Rather than using it as a key indicator when investing, it seems to be better to use it as a simple index that represents the current market situation.

Traders ALWAYS come first on MCS.

Thank You.
