Bitcoin Set to Go Into Halving Year in Bearish Action

The next Bitcoin (BTC) halving is just six months away, but this might be the first one with a bearish run-up. Will Woo – industry analyst – looked at the longer time frame charts and pointed out that the halvings in the past have always been bullish leading up to the event. In a tweet, Woo said:

NEVER gone into a halvening in BEARISH price action, miners already capitulating adding sell volume. Historically, we front-run with a BULLISH setup, miner capitulating only after halvening when revenues are slashed. This is a unique setup. Quite bearish leading up to the event.”

Woo said that as the price of the digital currency drops, the weaker miners will stop operations. This was the case during last year’s capitulation down to $3,000. This year, prices have plunged from around $14k down to $7,500, which is having the same effect on the miners.

Another analyst pointed out that there have only been two other Bitcoin halvings so there is not a great deal of data to go on. Someone else noted that a huge global recession seems to be impending for next year, which would also put pressure on the likelihood of a massive bull run. There might not be any major bull run for a few years.

However, Crypto Dog was pretty bullish and he pointed out that there is also a lot of competition between miners:
