Bias towards halving related BTC price action seems to be quite different.

Some of traders with good track records expect things will happen first in June.

Bitcoin 𝕵ack, a well known trader and market analyst, posted an interesting three month outlook:

14K by June possible:

Santiment has a fine tuned lens to observe real data collected from thousands crypto social channels. It's possible to compare how many people are posting messages containing "buy" or "buying' with the opposite - people posting "sell" or "dump":

Blue line stands for "buy", red line - "sell", green - BTC price

And it looks like now people are more interested in selling instead of buying.

Next, how is "halving" itself represented in crypto talks?

Blue - "halving" mentions, green - BTC price

This chart is telling an interesting story that each strong spike in "halving" mentions correlates to actually price turning points. Every time there is a strong spike it either consolidates or goes down.

The amount of talks is picking up and it looks like we already reached the peak few days ago exactly when we hit local top.

Generally looks like everyone is waiting for cryptoparty or halving to pass by. And you know the price might follow.

But crypto is always full of surprises.

Remember macro investor Tudor Jones saying he's in Bitcoin?
