The volume traded yesterday was $33,749,878,156 – up from $29,461,458,313 the day before. That’s the highest daily trading volume since 21 October. High volume indicates that a significant price movement has stronger support and is more likely to be sustained.

Fear and Greed Index
We’re still in the green at 70, up from 61 the day before. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing – while extreme fear can indicate that investors are too worried, when investors are getting too greedy that means the market may be due for a correction.
Global In/Out of the money
For any address with a balance of tokens, ITB identifies the average price (cost) at which those tokens were purchased and compares it with the current price. If the current price is higher than average cost, address is ‘In the Money’. If the current price is lower than the average cost, the address is ‘Out of the Money’.

Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The daily RSI is currently 83.54. Values of 70 or above typically indicate that an asset is becoming overbought and may be primed for a trend reversal or experience correction in price – an RSI reading of 30 or below indicates an oversold or undervalued condition.
Resistance and support
What they said yesterday…
Bitcoin’s performance is SO dominant and SO all-encompassing that it is going to suck in every single asset narrative dry and spit it out.
Never before in my career have I see a trade so dominant that holding any other assets makes almost no sense.

Paul Tudor Jones, @jack, @jimcramer, @novogratz, @michael_saylor, @genesimmons, and many more all have massive life success and #Bitcoin in common. If you don’t own bitcoin right now, you have to ask yourself what exactly it is that you know and they don’t.
