For the Crypto Fear and Greed Index, the value of zero translates to ‘Extreme Fear’ while the value of 100 represents ‘Extreme Greed. Notably, the fear and greed index is based on a combination of data points, including volatility, social media, and Google trends. The data allows evaluating the aggregated market sentiments. This tool has become a significant investment indicator and form of analysis of the crypto price fluctuations.

Excessive greed can cause the bloating of the cryptocurrency to the extent where it is overpriced. At the same time, rampant fear can drop the price down to the undervalued zone. Most specifically, the crypto market is overly emotional, as well. When the market goes up, many investors enter the market due to the fear of missing out. Notably, using the Bitcoin Fear and Greed Index can help in measuring and mitigating the emotional overreactions and judge market sentiment.

Is Bitcoin staring at deep correction?

From the data, the Bitcoin Fear and Greed Index has remained definitively skewed toward greed. However, it is not certain when the fear will start creeping in. It is worth mentioning that Bitcoin may be on the verge of a deep correction as the index has reached a territory of extreme greed.

Historically, the index reached these levels back December 2017 and January 2019. It was later followed by a massive collapse and a depressing crypto season, which lasted for about a year.

Notably, when the index nears 100, there is a high likelihood that the market will correct thanks to a wave of selling, dragging the price down.
