Crypto Fear and Greed Index Hits an Almost Record Low of 10.
The number of Bitcoin holders with 0.01 BTC or more hitting an all-time high comes when the general mood in the crypto markets is one of fear. This points to the possibility of retail investors accumulating Bitcoin at current levels despite the overall mood of fear in the crypto markets.
At the time of writing, the Crypto fear and greed index is at a value of 10, which is an indicator of extreme fear.
Furthermore, a value of 10 is the second-lowest value of the crypto fear and greed index in the last 12 months. May 17th’s fear index was the lowest in the same period, at a value of 8, due to the crypto-wide selloff catalyzed by UST’s depegging event.
Bitcoin Continues to Struggle to Maintain a Level Above $30k.
With respect to price action, Bitcoin is trading below the crucial $30k resistance level at its current value of $29,700. In addition, Bitcoin remains in bear territory, trading below the 50-day (white), 100-day (yellow), and 200-day (green) moving averages, as seen in the chart below.
Also, from the chart, it can be observed that the daily MFI, MACD, and RSI are all hinting at a scenario of reduced buying of Bitcoin.
Consequently, Bitcoin has a high chance of either continuing its consolidation between $30k and $29k or falling lower to retest $28k or even the local low of $26,700 experienced in early May due to the Terra/UST saga.
