92.3% of all days since 2013-04-28.

Bitcoin volume

The volume traded yesterday was $36,506,852,789 – up from $36,750,077,324 the day before. That’s the lowest daily volume since 9 September 2020.

Bitcoin’s market capitalisation as of yesterday was $190,870,759,062, up from $193,049,493,277 the day before. That’s $24.47 each. Which isn’t very much, really.

Fear and Greed Index

August was characterised by extreme greed, with the Fear and Greed index hitting a low of just 72. September has been a different story, with all but the first three days spent languishing in the Fear zone. This is where we remain today, at 39.

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.

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’.
