LEGACY MARKETS – DXY

DXY Market | Kairon Labs Crypto Market Maker Trader Insight - May 13, 2024

DXY is still at the top of the range but has shown some signs of weakness. Currently, the market is waiting for it to choose a direction after this smaller consolidation at the top of the range.

LEGACY MARKETS – VIX

VIX Market | Kairon Labs Crypto Market Maker Trader Insight - May 13, 2024

VIX has completely died out again to low 13s. Looking at multiple assets BTC / Tech stocks, it seems likely VIX will stay muted, and assets will start trending again after 2-3 months of range.

BTC WEEKLY VIEW

BTC Market | Kairon Labs Crypto Market Maker Trader Insight - May 13, 2024

BTC has been consolidating on the previous ATH since mid-March. With support on the ATH seemingly holding, BTC seems to have a decent shot at resuming its upward trend.

ETH WEEKLY VIEW

ETH Market | Kairon Labs Crypto Market Maker Trader Insight - May 13, 2024

ETH has a deadline of May 23rd for possible ETF approvals. ETH is still heavily underperforming any real strength BTC is having. This is also reflected in the slow bleed price action on the ETH/BTC ratio.

ETH/BTC

ETH/BTC Market | Kairon Labs Crypto Market Maker Trader Insight - May 13, 2024

ETH/BTC is still slowly bleeding down. With the breakdown under a 3-year range seemingly happening, either ETH/BTC snaps back in range and gets real relative strength, or it will start accelerating downwards on the breakdown (This would also imply strong movement upward on BTC).

TOTAL3 USD MARKET STRENGTH

USD Market | Kairon Labs Crypto Market Maker Trader Insight - May 13, 2024

TOTAL3 follows the same picture BTC and ETH are showing. TOTAL3/BTC looks much stronger than the ETH/BTC ratio. This would indicate more underlying strength in alts, and ETH is underperforming the general alt market relative to it.

TOTAL3 BTC MARKET STRENGTH

BTC market strength - Kairon Labs Trader Insights May 13, 2024

ALT/BTC is still pushing the downtrend and will likely break out. In comparison, ETH/BTC is still massively failing and showing no relative strength.

SUMMARY

  • BTC/USD is looking good for trend continuation, with prior support still holding strong.
  • ETH/BTC is still underperforming. This week and next week, many ETH ETF deadlines for May are approaching.
  • ALT/BTC is pushing to break out of downtrends.
