When the dollar is on the run, you can pretty much bet that other markets, cryptocurrency specifically is going to have a rough time. The DXY is an index that tracks the value of the dollar against a basket of other global currencies, and as you can see, it's winning at the moment, you can see that certainly in the Bitcoin charts.

Even the stock market, or at least the S&P is having a bit of a go at it as well and is looking at the possibility of a downtrend. This chart is the ES1! mini futures chart for the S&P500.

And then we have the good ole yellow metal, GOLD. Gold is absolutely getting pounded into the ground instead of being dug out, haha, bad trader dad joke for you.

Not all hope is lost

The dollar rise can't continue forever, and by the looks of the momentum across the markets, we seem to be trying to find a bottom which could lead to some consolidation then a turn back to the upside for risk assets. This could be a time to start looking to buying some dips, but I would also watch for a topping signal in the DXY before betting the house because there could still be some upside.

What am I doing?

Well today is my birthday, so I am not trading. I am taking the day off meaning that I am sitting in the dollar for the time being. I do have some alerts set so I may take a birthday Bitcoin trade if the conditions align throughout the day. Being on the sidelines in cash is always a position to be in. In this case, you are winning out being in the dollar. This is where having some stablecoins in an interest bearing savings like HBD is a good play. The only problem there is that you have a 3 day waiting period before you can make any trades.

If you use Polygon or BSC, you could use services like Aave or perspectively to put your stablecoins to work while you are on the sidelines and then withdraw when you are ready to trade. OR... you could loan against your stablecoins, trade the assets and pay back the loan... But that's a whole other post topic in itself, haha.
