Crypto Market Sentiment Drops; Only Bitcoin and Ether in Positive Zone
Along with a drop in price, market sentiment score (sentscore) has moved away from the positive zone it had gotten very close to last week. According to crypto market sentiment analysis tool Omenics, the combined moving 7-day average sentscore for the top 10 coins dropped from 5.87 back to 5.48, thus moving towards 5.33 recorded two weeks ago.
Unlike last week's overall green picture, we find all coins with varying red numbers this time around, and one coin - Tether (USDT) - dropped below the score of 5. Furthermore, compared to four, only two remain in the positive zone this week, each with a lower sentscore: Bitcoin (BTC) dropped from 7 to 6.5, and Ethereum (ETH) from 6.6 to 6.4. The remaining seven coins in the top 10 category all have sentscores between 5 and 5.6.
Now taking a quick look at their scores in the last day, we find the 24-hour average sentscore for these 10 coins at just 4.86 - a far cry from last Monday's 5.95. That's not all: seven coins have dropped below 5, only two are in the 5-5.9 range (BTC and Cardano (ADA)), while Ethereum remains the only coin in the positive zone with a score of 6.1.
Sentiment change among the top 10 coins*:
Interpreting the sentscore’s scale:
- 0 to 2.5: very negative
- 2 to 3.9: somewhat negative zone
- 4 to 5.9: neutral zone
- 6 to 7.49: somewhat positive zone
- 7.5 to 10: very positive
Three coins whose respective scores dropped the least - less than 3% - are ETH, Tezos (XTZ), and USDT. Ethereum got high, positive scores in news (7.1) and technicals (6.9), followed by fundamentals and social, each of which got the score of 5.7. Its lowest score is 4.5 in buzz. Tezos also has a positive score of 7.3 in news, while its social and technicals are scored with 5.5 and 5.3, respectively. Its lowest scores are in buzz (4.6) and fundamentals (3).
