Past week was fairly quiet. The CVI is down (66.6 at press time), fear and greed index is flat (29) and total market cap has not changed from past Monday ($809 billion as of today). BTC and ETH prices remain nearly the same (0.3% and 2.2% increase in the past 7 days) and even two of the top gainers and top losers are the same as in our digest a week ago. But a few interesting things still happened and we noticed at least one Christmas miracle!
Market indices and prices:
Fear and greed index is at 28 today, one point below the level as of last Monday, December 19, 2022. The index declined to 26 in anticipation of the US GDP third quarter 2022 figures release, but mainly stayed at 29 over the past week.
Crypto Volatility Index (CVI) is 66.6 at press time on December 26. The CVI declined during the past week by 10%. The index is substantially lower than the 90-day average of 80.2 and 180-day average of 84.5.
