Analyst Ali Martinez shed light on historical patterns surrounding Bitcoin’s halving events. In both 2016 and 2020, Bitcoin consolidated for extended periods—189 days and 87 days, respectively—before the onset of a new bull run. 

Around the last two #halving events, #Bitcoin consolidated for an extended period — 189 days in 2016 and 87 days in 2020 — before the bull run resumed.

So far, $BTC has consolidated for 60 days!

Currently, BTC has been in a consolidation phase for 61 days, suggesting that a potential breakout may be on the horizon. Martinez also highlighted the significance of Bitcoin testing the 100-day EMA (Exponential Moving Average) while the RSI (Relative Strength Index) dipped to 36. A similar scenario in late January led to a major price rebound, indicating that history may repeat itself.

However, caution is advised, as a sustained close below the 100-day EMA could signal a further drop toward the 200-day EMA. Additionally, the market faces significant liquidation risks, with $67.22 million set to be liquidated on Binance alone if Bitcoin rebounds to $62,600.

$67.22 million will be liquidated on #Binance alone if #Bitcoin rebounds to $62,600!
