The cryptocurrency’s “Fear and Greed” Index has dropped to “extreme fear” this week. Is this a signal of a “bottom fishing” opportunity?
On December 6, the Bitcoin (BTC) “Fear and Greed” index hit 16/100 for the first time in nearly 5 months. After that, the index bounced up a bit and stabilized at this extreme low.

Since then, Bitcoin has been unable to leave the “Extreme Fear” zone for the past week. It took just 28 days for the index to plunge from an eight-month high, at 84/100.
On a short-term perspective, analysts point to Bitcoin’s “Fear and Greed” index dropping to extreme lows due to Bitcoin’s failure to hold above $50,000.
The last time Bitcoin’s “Fear and Greed” index was in this zone was when Bitcoin traded below $30,000 at the end of July 2021, following a massive drop in Q2 2021.
The net capitalization of the crypto market has fallen below $2.5 trillion for the first time since October 15. On November 9-10, total capitalization managed to stay above $3 trillion for two days, which is an unprecedented record.
Bitcoin (BTC.D) dominance is currently very close to a 7-month low.
Ethereum (ETH) performs slightly better than Bitcoin (BTC). The ETH/BTC ratio has drawn an impressive run towards a 44-month high.
Usually, a combination of these trends indicates an upcoming “altcoin season,” i.e. a period in which the major altcoins perform better than ever.
