Crypto Fear & Greed Index - TradingView Indicator
Crypto Fear & Greed Index is a metric to gauge sentiment levels in the crypto market.
The index starts from 0 to 100, with 0 meaning “Extreme Fear” (a potential bottom signal as investors are overly fearful), and 100 meaning “Extreme Greed” (a potential top signal as investors are overly bullish ).
Why Measure Fear and Greed?
In most markets, participants tend to be emotional with their behavior. Market participants often get overly greedy and FOMO when prices are on a euphoric rise, whilst they also tend to be overly fearful when prices are down and irrationally selling their positions at a loss.
Using the Crypto Fear and Greed Index
The Crypto Fear and Greed Index is commonly used to time entry into the market. As such, the Index is seen as less of an investment research tool and more of a market-timing tool. As stated by Warren Buffet, “Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful.”
Calculation of the Crypto Fear and Greed Index
The Crypto Fear and Greed Index is based on three different factors – each factor is gauged from 0 to 100 and equally weighted to generate the index value.
The three factors are:
- Stable coin flows
If there is a market sell-off and investors are expecting the value of their crypto investment to decline, they may rotate into stable coins as a safe haven.
As such, we look at the general trend of stable coins volume and activity to measure if the market is greedy or fearful.
- Market Momentum
The performance of the top 18 coins relative to its 120-day average. A greater relative performance indicates greed and vice versa.
- Top 18 Coins Price Strength
The number of coins of the top 18 coins hitting 90-days highs relative to those hitting 90-days lows. A greater number of coins hitting 90-days highs versus 90-days lows indicates greed and vice versa.
- Extreme Greed Level (Default 75) - If above this level, investors are overly bullish
- Extreme Fear Level (Default 25) - If below this level, investors are overly fearful
- RSI ON/OFF (Default ON) - Plot Relative Strength Index (RSI)
- RSI Period (Default 14)
