The Fear & Greed index has slightly fallen to 57, still over the significant threshold of 50. This suggests that the market has become cautious optimism. However, due to the recent reversal of the market, it is recommended to observe the subsequent trend.
The Bitcoin Ahr999 index has modestly fallen to 0.78, which is above the support level of 0.45 but below that of 1.2. This shows that the short-term trend becomes strong, but the long-term trend is still a bear market. Therefore, It is not recommended to buy the dip in batches. However, purchasing small amounts through dollar-cost averaging (DCA) may be a viable strategy.
According to the above analysis, the market has become optimistic with a stable price trend. Therefore, we recommend periodically buying with a fixed amount and selling them gradually as the market rises.
