Legacy DXY  | Crypto Market Update - Kairon Labs

As we mentioned before, DXY is likely to stay in the 100-107 range which will help a risky asset rally. Currently consolidating just under a big resistance level, any rally into resistance could put some pressure on stocks and crypto.


Legacy VIX  | Crypto Market Update - Kairon Labs

VIX is trading higher levels again this will open up a downside for markets if it sustains. However, if it fades again everything should be good to proceed or at least hold current levels.


BTC Weekly  | Crypto Market Update - Kairon Labs

BTC again is pushing for all-time highs this morning. With the nonstop ETF flows it seems like BTC will keep walking higher in a low-volatility manner.


ETH Weekly  | Crypto Market Update - Kairon Labs

ETH continued consolidating above resistance turned the support zone at 3.2K and started catching up with BTC this morning. ETH is likely to test the next 4k major resistance once it starts picking up with more popular re-staking and ETF narratives in May.


ETH/BTC | Crypto Market Update - Kairon Labs

ETH/BTC is still holding near $0.05 key support, and we started seeing a rebound from this level. ETH/BTC is still expected to move higher from here given more ETH-related narratives down the road.


TOTAL3 USD  | Crypto Market Update - Kairon Labs

TOTAL3 started picking up after the leveraged longs were cleared and AI, meme, and BTC ecosystem is leading the way. We still expect a large upside move in alts once the BTC dominance ratio stabilizes and ETH starts running as well.


TOTAL3/BTC  | Crypto Market Update - Kairon Labs

ALT/BTC still stays within the current range, as mentioned before, we expect the ratio to continue the breakout and have a major upside and test the resistance in the chart once BTC dominance stabilizes.


  • The market was undergoing a rate cut re-pricing due to rising inflationary pressures last week
  • BTC is building more bullishness given increasing BTC ETF inflows and reduced leveraged with flattening perp funding rate
  • The anticipated move resulting from the BTC halving event may need the injection of new macro liquidity which is largely dependent on new inflation data reading.
