Bitcoin nears pre-halving ‘target zone’ toward $50K BTC price

Bitcoin (BTC) is nearing a key Fibonacci retracement level which could mark the top of its “pre-halving rally.”

That is according to popular social media trader Titan of Crypto, who on Nov. 19 reiterated a pre-halving BTC price target of up to $50,000.

Bitcoin faces stiff resistance sliding back to the $40,000 mark; several attempts to crack it have failed in the past week.

As Cointelegraph reported, the area immediately below also holds significance for aggregate market profitability, with $39,000 likely a breakeven point for those who bought in during the 2021 bull market.

Titan of Crypto has also flagged $39,000 as an important boundary — this time, however, as the bottom of where BTC/USD should end up prior to the April 2024 block subsidy halving event.

“The pre halving rally I told you about one year ago is about to reach its target zone between $39k-$50k,” he told X subscribers, adding that “patience is key.”

The update referenced an original post from December 2022, when Bitcoin was still preparing to recover from a trip to two-year lows of $15,600.

Then, Titan of Crypto used Fibonacci retracement levels to predict a pre-halving peak of up to $50,000 — at the time a 220% increase.

“Each cycle BTC had a rally before its halving occurs. Those rallies topped within the 61.8%-78.6% fibonacci retracement area,” part of commentary noted at the time.

Filbfilb, co-founder of trading suite DecenTrader, continues to give an area around $46,000 as “likely,” despite not discounting the probability of a BTC price dip between now and then.

What might happen after the halving, however, is a more bullish question for many, with forecasts including $130,000 or more by the end of 2025.

To the immediate downside, meanwhile, $30,900 has entered as a floor for Bitcoin’s next potential correction. A move lower to test liquidity, some argue, would be healthy, as well as a classic part of Bitcoin market uptrends.

BTC/USD currently trades at $36,500, per data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView, having tracked sideways throughout the weekend.
