According to the previous market performance of Bitcoin before and after halving, the halving market can be divided into two: before halving (good expectations) and after halving (mad bull market). The halving market mentioned here again mainly refers to the former: in past performance, it often corresponds to a positive expected rise and a callback after a large rise.

When bitcoin continued to drop from November to December last year, more and more people in the market began to doubt whether bitcoin would have a halving that was expected to be positive. At a time when pessimism was getting stronger, the broader market unexpectedly began to rise rapidly in January this year, rapidly rising from $ 6,800 to a high of $ 10,500, an increase of up to 50%, and taking only 40 days. However, after the bitcoin surge, it has experienced a slump in recent days, and it quickly fell back to about $ 8,800. People can't help but wonder: Is the expected halving good ended?

Currently, there are more than 70 days before the next Bitcoin halving. Although history does not simply repeat, history can be used as a mirror. So, how did the performance of the past two days before Bitcoin halved in half more than 70 days?

70 days before the second halving (July 2016), when the price of Bitcoin was at $ 2,900, it was in a correction after a big increase ($ 1500 in September 2015 to a high of $ 3,000 in December 2015) Shock phase (January 2016 to April 2016). After the market fluctuated sufficiently, it began to rise sharply at the end of May 2016, rising from $ 2,900 to a high of $ 5,000 in less than a month. The positive expectation was released one month before the halving occurred, and then it fell back from a high to a low of $ 3,600 in August 2016.

70 days before the first halving (November 2012), when the Bitcoin price was at $ 77, it was also in a period of callback shock after a big increase (from $ 32 in May 2012 to $ 84 in August 2012) (August 2012 to October 2012). But there is a difference: after the shock is full, there is no sharp increase, but it starts to rise slowly from the low of 64 dollars and continues to rise slowly after halving; under this round of cycles, it rose sharply in May 2012 Prior to this, there was also a sustained surge ($ 14, November 2011 to $ 40, January 2012).

Finally, looking at the current trend, it is more similar to the situation before the second halving: both are in a period of callback shocks after a continuous rise ($ 3,800 in March 2019 to $ 1,400 in June 2019); corresponding to the previous period It is the first time that the new round has continued to rise significantly and is dominated by a cyclical rebound. That is to say, if history repeats, the continuous increase before the halving this time is likely to be similar to the situation before the halving in 2016: it will come later and may even be closer to the halving date.
