The research attempted to interpret the meaning of the current extreme greed levels. According to the research report: “From the data, the Bitcoin Fear and Greed Index has remained definitively skewed toward greed. However, it is not certain when the fear will start creeping in. It is worth mentioning that Bitcoin may be on the verge of a deep correction as the index has reached a territory of extreme greed. Historically, the index reached these levels back December 2017 and January 2019. It was later followed by a massive collapse and a depressing crypto season, which lasted for about a year.”
