SOPR is calculated simply as (Price sold / Price bought)
There are three possible values of SOPR.
SOPR > 1

- The selling price is higher than the buying price
SOPR < 1
- The coin holder made a loss.
- Based on the formula above the selling price is lower than the buying price
SOPR = 1
- The coin holder made no profit or loss.

Indication by SOPR
What does this SOPR indicate?

- A lower SOPR indicates fear and panic selling in the market.
