BITCOIN correlation with stock market volatility and Halvings.

As Bitcoin (BTCUSD) adoption goes on and more institutional investors enter the market, the correlation of BTC and stocks becomes more and more tight. That is a paradigm that the cryptoworld struggled to come to terms with in the past but is now more real than ever. A healthy stock market is good for Bitcoin. The current analysis depicts exactly that notion in terms of Growth and Volatility while incorporating a key parameter of BTC, the Halvings.

** What is a Halving? **
First of all, in case you are a newcomer in the cryptospace, what is a Halving? It is the most pivotal events on Bitcoin's blockchain and is when the payout for mining a new block is halved. This induces inflation in the price, reducing the number of BTC in circulation, thus increasing demand. It happens after every 210,000 blocks (approximately four years). Because of increased demand, Halvings historically tend to create aggressive price rallies after the event.

** Stock market Growth and Volatility phases **
This chart is on the 1W time-frame and as mentioned displays Bitcoin (orange trend-line) against the stock market in the form of the S&P500 index (blue trend-line). The stock market since 2011 has gone through clear phases of Growth (green zone) and Volatility (blue zone). Out of the past three Bitcoin Cycles, two of them make almost exact matches: BTC's Bear Cycles with Stocks' Volatility Phases and BTC Bull Cycles/ Rally Phases with Stocks' Growth Phases. Slight exception was 2013/14, where BTC peaked in November 2013 but the stock market Growth Phase continued for another year. By the time the stock market volatility started, BTC had already made the bottom of its Bear Cycle.

We may have a similar situation with the current BTC Cycle as well. Assuming that BTC's peak was in April 2021 and not November 2021 (slightly higher high), then as in 2013/14, the stock market Growth extended almost 1 year after BTC's peak. If that's the case and the correlation continues to hold, then BTC's bottom was priced early this year as the stock market volatility has started since the start of 2022.

Another interesting element is that the middle of the Stock market volatility phase has always been very close to BTC's Bear Cycle bottom level. Technically, that appears the most optimal level overall historically to buy with confidence for the long-term. If the current Stock volatility phase lasts 84 weeks as in 2015, then its middle should be around October 2022. If however the volatility phase lasts as long as 2018/2019 (107 weeks), then its middle should be around January 2023. Note that a Volatility phase that long would match almost perfectly with the next Halving of March 2024, which as mentioned at the start of the analysis, kick-starts BTC's Parabolic Rally.
