Kevin Svenson, a prominent crypto analyst, has recently shared his 2024 price forecast for Bitcoin, providing a nuanced view of the expected trends in the coming months. Svenson’s analysis, which breaks down the year into distinct phases, offers a glimpse into the possible highs and lows that Bitcoin might experience.

His predictions paint a picture of a year marked by significant volatility, a characteristic trait of the crypto market.

Analyst Projected Bitcoin Phases In 2024

Svenson’s forecast is split into four key phases: a rally leading up to the BTC halving event, a subsequent downturn in Q2, a recovery in Q3, and a potential all-time high (ATH) before the year’s end. This phased approach underscores the cyclical nature of BTC’s price movements, heavily influenced by its halving events.

Notably, the Bitcoin halving, a process that reduces the reward for mining new blocks by half, effectively diminishing the new supply of Bitcoin, has historically been a key driver for price increases.

The upcoming BTC halving, projected by Svenson to occur later this year by April 15, 2024, is expected to be a significant catalyst for price movements. According to the analyst’s chart, BTC could witness a rally, pushing its price to around $60,000 before the halving event, followed by a pullback below the $47,500 region.

This pattern aligns with historical trends observed around previous Bitcoin halvings, where supply reduction typically leads to price increases, followed by corrections.

After the Q2 dip, Svenson anticipates a recovery phase in Q3, where Bitcoin is expected to regain its lost ground and potentially set a new all-time high (ATH) by the end of 2024.

BTC Current Trend And Potential Surge

Meanwhile, Bitcoin has fallen below the recently traded $43,000 mark. Though the asset is up 6.4% over the past two weeks, it has declined nearly 1% in the past day.

BTC’s daily trading volume, on the other hand, has jumped from below $10 billion to over $15 billion in the last few days.

Michaël van de Poppe, who heads MN Trading, anticipates a period of consolidation for Bitcoin in the forthcoming months. He suggests that the crypto’s value might oscillate between $ 48,000 and $50,000 as the halving event approaches.

My general theory is that #Bitcoin is consolidating in the coming months.

Pre-Halving a final run towards resistance at $48-50K, after that another correction to $36-38K and from there #Altcoins to continue outperforming Bitcoin.
