Reserve Risk


Reserve Risk is the confidence of holders relative to price and can be interpreted as a confidence score of long-term holders. When confidence is high and the price is low, Reserve Risk (low) can indicate that it is a good time to buy – buying when reserve risk is low generates oversized returns. However, when confidence is low and the price is high (reserve risk is high), the indicator is a sell signal – there is too much risk.
