Junk bonds carry a higher risk of default compared to other bonds. Bond yields – or the return you get on investing in a bond – dip when prices go up. If investors crave junk bonds, the yields drop. Likewise, yields rise when people are selling.

So a smaller difference (or spread) between yields for junk bonds and safer government bonds is a sign investors are taking on more risk. A wider spread shows more caution. The Fear & Greed Index uses junk bond demand as a signal for Greed.
