LEGACY MARKETS – DXY

DXY Market | Kairon Labs Crypto Market Maker Trader Insight - December 4, 2023

DXY is for now still stuck in its larger range without any sight of a potential exit any time soon. This should give most markets a lot of room to run even more risk on stuff (lower cap tech stocks and also broader altcoin rallies).

LEGACY MARKETS – VIX

VIX Market | Kairon Labs Crypto Market Maker Trader Insight - December 4, 2023

VIX still bleeding lower & DXY being within the large range should give markets room to move further without too many hiccups.

BTC WEEKLY VIEW

BTC Market | Kairon Labs Crypto Market Maker Trader Insight - December 4, 2023

Last week, we outlined 2 potential scenarios, it seems BTC is very much doing the second with the first really large resistance since 30k coming up at the 44-46k area. Ideally for altcoins BTC stalls and corrects at that point and creates a new range. This could finally give room for ALT/BTC pairings to garner a lot of explosive strength.

ETH WEEKLY VIEW

ETH Market | Kairon Labs Crypto Market Maker Trader Insight - December 4, 2023

As mentioned last week ETH building price structure on top of 2k was quite bullish. Now that it has left almost a 2-year range the expansion could go on for quite a while. The first real price resistance is around the 3k zone. The strength in ETH has also revived NFT with liquidity flowing back into them.

ETH/BTC

ETH/BTC Market | Kairon Labs Crypto Market Maker Trader Insight - December 4, 2023

ETH/BTC is still weaker and still can’t outperform when BTC gets somewhat more volatile. Most likely it will pick once BTC’s initial wave is finished and capital flows from BTC into ETH to speculate more on the chain.

TOTAL3 USD MARKET STRENGTH

USD Market | Kairon Labs Crypto Market Maker Trader Insight - December 4, 2023

TOTAL3 is also on the brink of breaking back into its 2021 range. If all these factors align (BTC consolidation after ±44k, ETH/BTC picking up) then TOTAL3 should see a massive move upwards, this of course means a massive alt season. The timing for this seems to be EOY into Q1. Also, the seasonality of January - March in bull markets has always been great for altcoins.

TOTAL3 BTC MARKET STRENGTH

BTC market strength

ALT/BTC is still in the same range. And with BTC likely tagging 44k soonish, we think that at the green zone, ALT/BTC should bottom out and be the start of a potential alt season on top of BTC strength.

SUMMARY

  • BTC breaks back over 40k.
  • ETH breaking loose of the 2k area and BLUR outperforming is injecting liquidity back into NFT starting of a small rally so far.
