Legacy DXY  | Crypto Market Update - Kairon Labs

DXY is still on top of the range. If the strength keeps persisting - and it would try to vacate the range to the upside - crypto and equities could be pressured more. If it breaks down and falls back in range, it will open the window for the rallies in all sectors to continue.


Legacy VIX  | Crypto Market Update - Kairon Labs

The elevated VIX levels have opened the door for larger corrections on both equities and crypto. Ideally with the initial shock of Middle East escalation gone, the VIX retraces again and the market shakes off the initial scare.


BTC Weekly  | Crypto Market Update - Kairon Labs

As mentioned last week, we noted the strength BTC had on the altcoin wipeout. And for now, it still seems like BTC is just consolidating on the previous all-time high before continuing the trend.


ETH Weekly  | Crypto Market Update - Kairon Labs

As mentioned last week, the drop was likely a good “buy the dip” moment. With markets shaking off the geopolitical scare and if no further escalation happens, we’d expect the trend to pick up again relatively soon.


ETH/BTC | Crypto Market Update - Kairon Labs

ETH/BTC is nearing its long-term trend. And it's being quite resilient in going lower, with the BTC halving out of the way, the next big narrative in crypto should be the ethereum ETF.


TOTAL3 USD  | Crypto Market Update - Kairon Labs

TOTAL3 on the wipeout was a great buying opportunity. Lots of altcoins are setting up for trends - this coupled with ALT/BTC ratios finally seeming ready to rotate against BTC should be the start of a market-wide alt season.


TOTAL3/BTC  | Crypto Market Update - Kairon Labs

ALT/BTC general index seems to be setting up for a strong rotation. With BTC still consolidating on ATHs, it seems only a matter of time for alts to finally start going. Timeline-wise, it seems the market is at a similar point as January 2021.


  • Market shakes off the initial geopolitical scare in the Middle East
  • Next big crypto narrative should be the Ethereum ETF.
  • ALT/BTC ratios setting up for market-wide “Alt season”
