Analysis: The 12 coins with the hottest sentiment going into this week

Our analyst Remy Stephens brings us twelve of the hottest altcoins which are showing positive sentiment after the quiet weekend after a disappointing quiet week last week.

Written by Remy Stephens Published on

The wind has sort of been taken out of the sails of what was expected to be a pretty pivotal week.

On Friday, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) requested more comments on the much-discussed Van Eck ETF proposal, delaying what many had looked at as a crucial event to steer price action on Bitcoin (it’s worth noting that the SEC not issuing an outright denial is probably better news than worse).

That said, there’s plenty to look at in the market this week. $BTC has been on another long, slow bull creep in recent days, which has been enough to perk up most Alts. But most of the 154 traders and influencers I follow for my analysis believe we may be headed toward another retrace.

Whether that’s tomorrow or next week remains in question. Let’s look at some market sentiment.

 

It’s been a bullish few days for both the Alts and the big boy.  If recent history is any example, we might not have quite topped off yet. The last two $BTC drops followed days when sentiment peaked (and it was ugly).

People are certainly positive right now, but not to the heights they have been this month.  If $BTC can remain stable, there’s no reason Alts can’t continue their bull run. But again, folks are pretty lukewarm at the moment.

What is interesting to me is that many of the coins with the highest sentiment this week aren’t the ones that broke out last week. That indicates to me that folks think there’s still money to be made on alts, but are looking to places that haven’t surged yet.

Trade safe!

Methodology

Each week, I scrape the Twitter accounts of some of the crypto world’s favorite influencers, traders and TA folk. I run a sentiment analysis to see which coins they are mentioning positively, neutrally and which they are mentioning in a negative light.

I also take in data on unique influencers, retweets, favorites, volume and strength of feeling in sentiment.

I calculate power by through a weighted formula that takes into consideration volume, number of unique influencers and sentiment. The higher the score, the better, the lower the worse.

This isn’t financial advice, just my own way of trying to make sense of what’s out there. And as with most things, the more data I collect, hopefully, the more interesting it’ll be. This is a work in progress. Please leave suggestions on how to make it better. I imagine if I keep up with it, I’ll be able to expand a bunch of the analysis, but I wanted to start somewhere.
