According to CoinShares’ latest weekly report, the sentiment is currently positive among investors.

At press time, it flashed a reading of 68. On one hand, this may seem to be a good sign, because greed could foster accumulation, and in turn, help the buying-momentum bloom even further. However, it should also be borne in mind that whenever investors get too greedy, the market generally becomes due for a correction.
