Bitcoin has recently navigated into the notorious “Danger Zone,” a phase historically marked by significant retraces before the previous Halving events. Analyst Rekt Capital brings attention to an 18% retrace already occurring within this period, akin to how the cryptocurrency retraced circa 19.5% after the third halving on March 11, 2020.

The price of Bitcoin often experiences a significant run-up before a halving, as historical patterns have shown. Traders looking to capitalize on these gains may sell their holdings to lock in profits, especially if they anticipate a short-term drop post-halving.

From a fractal perspective, Bitcoin is close to ending its Danger Zone retracement and rebounding toward a new record high above $74,000 by June.
