Legacy DXY  | Crypto Market Update - Kairon Labs

As mentioned last week, the consolidation under resistance could lead to a rally into it and pressure crypto. With the Iran <> Israel catalyst, this move actually played out. For now, 107 is still top of the range and without further escalation unlikely to break.


Legacy VIX  | Crypto Market Update - Kairon Labs

Same here as mentioned, VIX sustaining the higher levels and rallying would open up the downside. The most interesting observation is how well BTC and ETH held and the major wipeout was mainly in altcoins.


BTC Weekly  | Crypto Market Update - Kairon Labs

BTC even after the weekend wipeout is still consolidating on all time high’s and is looking quite strong. An interesting hypothesis is if tradfi funds will use BTC as a geopolitical hedge now that they have access through ETF’s on the war news. So an increase in inflows is definitely something to watch out for this week.


ETH Weekly  | Crypto Market Update - Kairon Labs

ETH even post drop is still within its new range between 3-4k. So all the drop over the weekend is, for now, a good “buy the dip” opportunity.


ETH/BTC | Crypto Market Update - Kairon Labs

ETH/BTC is nearing its long-term trend. With BTC halving just a couple of days out, it wouldn’t be surprising to see this finally pick up.


TOTAL3 USD  | Crypto Market Update - Kairon Labs

TOTAL3 actually saw a massive wipeout. Where BTC and ETH had “mild” corrections, some alts dropped 40-60% over the weekend and wiped out leverage from the market completely. This was a massive opportunity to position for the rest of the cycle.


TOTAL3/BTC  | Crypto Market Update - Kairon Labs

ALT/BTC also finally reached its range low over the weekend and actually bottom ticked during the altcoin crash. We do think it’s more than due time for some proper ALT/BTC strength at this point.


  • Iran <> Israel conflict leads to major sell-off during the weekend.
  • BTC and ETH drops were relatively “mild”. Altcoins saw major OI wipeout in perpetuals (>1B in liquidations)
