The mood in the market is currently clear – Investors are flocking to trading and many fear that they will miss the opportunity to buy BTC. In these situations, the index can be used to measure any emotional reactions and assess the mood in the market.

Will we see a correction?

The index is currently clearly outnumbered by greed. In this case, we may see short-term correction. As soon as the index approaches the value 100, a significant sale is expected, which will logically pull the price down. We experienced similar situations in December 2017 and January 2019. There was always a massive slump.

The index works with a combination of data such as volatility, social media, or Google search trends. It then evaluates the results into an index that allows us to see what the mood in the market is.
