Sentimental Analysis for Cryptocurrencies- October 18

Published by

Cryptocurrencies are in a very difficult territory where no fundamental or technical indicators is actually affecting the price than the sentiment of the community. Every news article or a social mention is actually driving the trend and direction of where the prices are heading to. Although most of the sentiment is derived from the sentiment of the Bitcoin– the largest cryptocurrency, still some altcoins have their specific pros and cons that change their variance from that of Bitcoin. Let’s look at the few indicators that are used widely across to determine the sentiment.

Bitcoin Sentimental Analysis

As mentioned it’s the largest coin in the market that decides most of the trend for the crypto markets is necessary to understand that sentiment it garners among the community. A lot of news flow and sell off has dampened the

short term sentiment but yes there are some long-term positives which make Bitcoin an interesting study. An analysis of its social mention and greed and fear index would give us a clear idea of what is happening

All indicators are pointing toward neutrality with a slight positive loop. Both fear and greed index are still pretty much on the extreme fear side indicating pressure on prices but also opens doors to some buying opportunity.

While Bitcoin is neutral, Ethereum after struggling for a week has shot up into positive. This could be because the coin had slipped into the oversold category. XRP also lost some of its negative but those were converted to neutrals than positives. For all other altcoins, the sentiment of bitcoin seems to be replicating as people are more neutral.
