It's necessary for a prominent trader to separate market tendencies from the emotions of the participants.

Panic narratives are easily sold

CryptoBirb highlighted that people repeat mantras about a ‘dead Bitcoin’ that ‘will never recover’ solely on the basis of extreme market fear, but not on real evaluations of the crypto king's future.

To prove his position, the trader showed ‘CNN’s Fear & Greed Index’, the integrated indicator of market sentiment. In the past few days, this index plummeted to below 5 points out of 100, which means ‘Extreme Fear’. One month ago, it was ‘Neutral’ at 49 points out of 100.

No Fear 

Alongside that, CryptoBirb admitted that the Bitcoin (BTC) price chart looked very bearish as it broke below the trendline. This may scare off investors who are very careful of long-term trends in price behavior.
