In order to be able to provide this index, SFOX uses proprietary and a quantifiable indicator that analyses three market factors: price momentum, market sentiment, and advancement of the sector. In this way, there can be an index between highly bearish and highly bullish.
The company explained that they have seen price momentum, development of infrastructure, growing institutional interest and more. At the same time, the bull movement experienced by the market in April seemed to have been driven by a large buy order rather than fundamentals.
The report believes that the market is currently in a positive status overall. However, there are some worries such as FOMO and other things that could affect the market.
On the matter, the report commented:
“The signal suggested by this index is positive for the overall sector: while some may worry about market sentiments such as FOMO overwhelming crypto in the wake of an abrupt and unexpected rally, the data interpreted by our index imply that crypto is continuing on a sustained positive trajectory, independent of more transient surges in market interest.”
The report is also focused on what will happen in May 2019. They explained that it is important to take into account industry conferences in NYC such as Fluidity Summit, Consensus 2019 and Digital Asset Summit.

Nonetheless, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is expected to be delaying the approval of a Bitcoin ETF, thus, the market shouldn’t experience greater volatility during these dates.
Currently, Bitcoin is being traded close to $5950 and it has a market capitalization of over $105 billion.
