Bitcoin volume

The volume traded yesterday was $25,574,938,143, down from $34,149,115,566 the day before. High volume indicates that a significant price movement has stronger support and is more likely to be sustained.

Fear and Greed Index

The sentiment stays in Extreme Greed, although down a bit to 86 from 90 yesterday. That’s the longest streak in Extreme Greed we’ve had since the Index started in February 2018. Extreme fear can indicate that investors are getting too worried and there’s an opportunity for buyers, while extreme greed could mean the market is due for a correction.
