April crypto news with decentralized finance updates

Ape-ril’ing in April? Stock news is looking great and crypto bulls are aping the markets back to weekly open levels. Gold price slips as new US jobs data boosts dollar strength. We believe gold’s primary trend is bearish. Is it going to affect Bitcoin price?

Unlikely, but correlation, even though it is still insignificant, it is going up so stay cautious.
