LEGACY MARKETS – DXY

DXY Market | Kairon Labs Crypto Market Maker Trader Insight - March 4, 2024

DXY is still within the larger range of 106-100. As mentioned for now it likely keeps building more price structure within the range. The longer it stays within the range, the more risk assets have an upside, especially in tech stocks and crypto.

LEGACY MARKETS – VIX

VIX Market | Kairon Labs Crypto Market Maker Trader Insight - March 4, 2024

VIX is still failing any attempt at getting out of the lows (13-14 area). As long as that continues, there’s no real downside in the market. It’s something to keep an eye on with lots of AI stocks in parabolic and crypto meme coins also going parabolic.

BTC WEEKLY VIEW

BTC Market | Kairon Labs Crypto Market Maker Trader Insight - March 4, 2024

BTC is quite literally under “infinite bid” since the ETF. With prices near ATH’s, it doesn’t look like it will slow down as long as the ETF inflows keep up.

ETH WEEKLY VIEW

ETH Market | Kairon Labs Crypto Market Maker Trader Insight - March 4, 2024

ETH finally reached the 3.5K area. With ETH/BTC still being heavily compressed but holding up against the accelerated BTC move, it’s likely that ETH also goes for ATH’s as soon as the ETH ETF narrative picks up more steam and ETH/BTC gains some ground on BTC again.

ETH/BTC

ETH/BTC Market | Kairon Labs Crypto Market Maker Trader Insight - March 4, 2024

ETH/BTC is still failing every reversal attempt due to the sheer strength that BTC is seeing. Once BTC slows down, the ETH/BTC reversal will likely aid in the ETH/USD ATH rally.

TOTAL3 USD MARKET STRENGTH

USD Market | Kairon Labs Crypto Market Maker Trader Insight - March 4, 2024

TOTAL3 saw a large breakout, mainly and surprisingly led by meme coins. At the moment, all meme coin rallies are sucking all the liquidity out of the other alts.

TOTAL3 BTC MARKET STRENGTH

BTC market strength - Kairon Labs Trader Insights March 4, 2024

ALT/BTC is still in the range and surprisingly hasn’t really moved even though some altcoins have seen large parabolic movements.

SUMMARY

  • BTC is near all-time highs while meme coins are on a market-wide parabolic run.
  • At the moment, meme coins are sucking up most of the liquidity, letting other altcoins run dry. When/if meme coins consolidate, a lot of other alts will likely play catch-up given that BTC doesn’t see large corrections.
