Although the situation looks almost anecdotal, but in recent days, the cryptocurrency market is really fulfilling the prophecy analyst Tom Lee, who recommended investors to wait until the end of the tax period in the United States.
The website ValueWalk April 19 published an article titled “the Most important for cryptocurrency only indicator that was bullish.”
In his article ValueWalk writes that with the development of cryptocurrency market to it become applicable indicators traditionally used by investors in other markets.
One of such indicators are the modes of “risk on” and “risk off”. Investors either want to take the risk and invest in riskier assets such as stocks of technology companies, or do not want to invest in gold or US treasuries.
To demonstrate a change of investor sentiment, analysts suggest taking a look at the schedule ETH/BTC. According to them, bitcoin is in the view of investors is a more reliable asset, and therefore, the concentration of Fiat can talk about their unwillingness to take risks. In addition, bitcoin has the most developed infrastructure for the exchange for Fiat, so its growth rate relative to altcoins suggests that investors may not be ready to the long term injections. At the same time, Ethereum is a representative group of digital assets with a higher degree of risk.
“Back to the beginning of 2017. You may notice that ETH/BTC started about 0,0081 2017, and then peaked at 0,1500 in mid-June, thus rising to 1800%. At the same time, the total capitalisation of the segment rose from $20 billion to $115 billion, i.e. increased 5 times.
Following a significant rise ETH/BTC began in December 2017 at the level of 0,024 and reached a peak by 0.12 in February. This same period saw an increase in market capitalization from $300 billion to a historic high of $800 billion.
Then spread ETH/BTC has narrowed significantly, and the capitalization fell. However, both measures began to rise a few weeks ago. Spread ETH/BTC recently increased by 20% to 0,053 0,063, and market capitalization rose by 40% from $250 billion to $330 billion.”
This, the analysts conclude that growth regarding bitcoin Ethereum can serve as an indicator of the willingness of investors to take risks and at the same time a harbinger of the establishment of positive dynamics in the segment of the cryptocurrency.
