Why Measure Fear and Greed?
The crypto market behaviour is very emotional. People tend to get greedy when the market is rising which results in FOMO (Fear of missing out). Also, people often sell their coins in irrational reaction of seeing red numbers. With our Fear and Greed Index, we try to save you from your own emotional...
Psychology of a Market Cycle - Where are we in the cycle?
Before proceeding with the question "where", let's first have a quick look at "What is market psychology?"
Market psychology is the idea that the movements of a market reflect the emotional state of its participants. It is one of the main topics of behavioral economics - an interdisciplinary field...
A more simplified view of a Fear & Greed index.
This script has been made public because it uses Trading Psychology - Fear & Greed Index by DGT as the basis/inspiration for it.
I've re-imagined the visuals in order to display F&G data differently to the more traditional versions of the indicator floating around, as well as adapting it's calculations and...
This is an attempt to mimic the CNN Money "Fear & Greed Index": money.cnn.com
It's far from perfect, because the exact numbers can be a bit far off. Still, the highs and lows are quite on target. Alas, CNN does not give away too much information on how the index is calculated.
Feedback is most welcome.
The Fear And Greed Indicator is a very popular indicator on the Bloomberg platform and since I didn't have actual source code to work with, this is a very close approximation of that indicator. Let me know if you spot any discrepancies with the original and I will do my best to fix them.
For buy and sell signals it is pretty straightforward. Just buy when the...
"Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful" - Warren Buffett. Fearzone is a contrarian indicator that gives us an indication when fear begins to take over in the market. Traders should be prepared for increased volatility and good trading opportunities.
The Fearzone is visualized with red candlesticks below the price.
The crypto index, which is currently only for Bitcoin, captures bearish and bullish trends by gauging investor sentiment for the coin. As the name suggests, the market trend is identified based on two emotions – fear and greed.
This configurations are set for 1D BTC charts
This is simple script, based on cheatcountry script
I couldn't find one based on the original, so I made my own, it's not quite identical, but it does the job.
Red = greed
Green = fear
I updated a lot of the subcomponents and fixed a bug. I've reduced the smoothing to 1, it was previously 5 if you prefer smoother signals. Also added a McClellan oscillator.
I've commented out the plotting of individual...
Sweet little momentum gadget to track the VIX Index.
What is the VIX?
The CBOE S&P 500 Volatility Index (VIX) is known as the 'Fear Index' which can measure how worried traders are that the S&P 500 might suddenly drop within the next 30 days.
When the VIX starts moving higher, it is telling you that traders are getting nervous. When the VIX starts moving lower,...
This script uses all of the sub-components of my 'Fear and Greed Index' which can be used on intraday timeframes. Most of the components of this script are based on the popular fear and greed index website and are briefly described in the code comments.
Several of the subcomponents have been recalculated to use RSIs instead of being compared to moving averages,...
US 2 year and US 10 year comparison, inverted yield curve with VIX. I use this on a weekly chart with 2 moving averages, the 40 week (ma200 daily) and the 520 week (10 year median).
The bottom histogram is the VIX and the plot is the yield curve. When the VIX is above a certain level (you can set it in settings) and the ýield curve is close to or at inversion the...
"Buy at the level of maximum fear when everyone is selling." - says a well-known among traders wisdom. If an asset's price declines significantly from the most recent highest value or established range, traders start to worry. The higher the drawdown gets, the more fear market participants experience. During a sell-off, a feedback loop arises, in which the...
This colours the candlesticks based on my 'Fear and Greed Index'.
All calculations are explained in the code.
The index is mainly based upon the components of the popular fear and greed index website. I've annotated the components in the code for you to look at.
If you're interested, you can replace the final variable 'Total' (within the 'barcolor' function at...
