The Bitcoin Halving Cycle 2024

BNC:BLX   Bitcoin Liquid Index
The occurrence of a Bitcoin halving event refers to a significant reduction, usually every four years, in the reward granted to Bitcoin miners. Historical data and the Bitcoin price chart reveal distinct patterns of how the halving event impacts the value of Bitcoin, leading to the formation of what is known as the Bitcoin halving cycle.

The Bitcoin Halving Cycle is visually represented in the chart above, which showcases a log-scale weekly candlestick chart depicting the price of Bitcoin. This chart highlights the consistent pattern of the three distinct phases, namely the bull market, bear market, stagnation/recovery period or range and accumulation phase, that occur within each cycle.

Within the depicted chart, different coloured boxes symbolise specific market phases. The light green box signifies the bull market, while the red box represents the bear market. The yellow box indicates the recovery phase. Inside the yellow box, three additional boxes are displayed. The blue box represents the initial accumulation stage following the bear market. The lime green box signifies a period of expansion, and the orange box represents a subsequent ranging period, which can be viewed as a second stage of accumulation.

Analysing the Bitcoin price chart, we can observe that a typical Bitcoin halving cycle on average unfolds as follows: a one and half year bull market, followed by a one-year bear market, and finally a one and half year period of stagnation (range and accumulation).

Bitcoin is currently in its fourth halving cycle, and can be considered in the ranging and accumulation cycle. During these stages of the cycle in Bitcoin's history, price has reached its 0.786 fibonacci retracement at least once when measuring this from the peak of the bull market stage to the trough of the Bear cycle.

If history rhymes, Bitcoins's price has the potential to reach $52,000 USD from now or until the next halving date.
