Fear & Greed - CRYPTO FRIDAY

Hey DEFI TIMES community,

Markets are consolidating - pretty heavily. Especially most newcomers, who have entered the industry in February, are losing their faith. Why is that so?

As so often, let’s take a look at the Fear & Greed Index. We are sitting at a very healthy level of 60. While we are still in the greed phase, we are nowhere near the extreme greed levels we saw in February.

In my opinion, this was the best scenario that could have played out. Why? Because the more we correct, the longer the bull market will last - and the healthier the next price increase will be. 

The more weak hands are shaken out, the more people take profits on their gains - And the more people are fearful, the more bullish I get.

Smart money is buying, dumb money is leaving. Now is the time to prepare for the next leg up - Be greedy when everyone is fearful, and be fearful when everyone else is greedy.

It’s the ultimate sign that this bull market is far from over.
