Bitcoin price

We closed yesterday, 11 October, 2020, at a price of $11,384.18, with a daily high of $11,428.81 and a low of $11,288.63. That’s the highest daily closing price since 2 September.

On 11 October, 2019, the closing price was $8,321.76. On 11 October, 2018, it was $6,256.24 and the same date in 2017 was $4,826.48.

We’re 43.33% below bitcoin‘s all-time high of $20,089 (17 December 2017).

Bitcoin volume

The volume traded yesterday was $19,968,627,060 – down from $22,877,978,588 the day before. High volume indicates that a significant price movement has stronger support and is more likely to be sustained.

Market capitalisation

Bitcoin’s market capitalisation as of yesterday was $210,766,812,992, up from $209,130,239,495 the day before. To put that into context, Jeff Bezos is currently worth $175.3 billion. This means he can only afford to buy 83.17% of all bitcoin. If you got 83.17% on a maths test, it wouldn’t even be considered a passing grade at some institutions. Sorry Jeff, you fail.

As of today, buying bitcoin has been profitable for…

95.2% of all days since 2013-04-28.

Fear and Greed Index

Sentiment is at 52 – down from 55 the day before. It’s the third day in a row we’ve been back over 50 – still not approaching August’s spell in Extreme Greed but certainly suggesting upward momentum. Extreme fear can be a sign that investors are too worried, which could be a buying opportunity. When Investors are getting too greedy, that means the market may be due for a correction. Are we set for a big move?

Twitter sentiment

Yesterday, there were 9,291 tweets sent with a positive connotation towards bitcoin, 19,037 with a neutral connotation, and 1,320 were negative.
