Bitcoin (BTC), the leading cryptocurrency, has been showing a remarkable recovery in the past few days, after a brief dip below $40,000 in January. The digital asset has climbed above $47,000, as investors flock to the newly launched spot-Bitcoin ETFs.
Michael van de Poppe, a cryptocurrency analyst and trader, posted on X on February 10 that Bitcoin is probably looking for higher liquidity levels, and we could see $55k before the halving. He also revised his range of high predictions, saying that BTC could reach between $49k and $51k before the halving.
BTC is likely to continue its upward momentum as the major halving event coming closer. The halving is a process that occurs every four years, in which the reward for mining new blocks of bitcoin is cut in half. This reduces the supply of new coins, creating a scarcity effect that boosts the value of the existing ones
Rekt Capital, another crypto analyst, also pointed out that Bitcoin is following a historical pattern of pre-halving rallies, which usually happen around two months before the halving. He shared a chart that showed the previous price movements of BTC before the halving events in 2015, 2019, and 2023.

Moreover, technical analysis also supports a bullish or upward BTC price outlook. BTC broke above major resistance at $44,000, signaling a strong breakout. This shows positive market sentiment and high demand for Bitcoin. Furthermore, BTC is currently showing strong bullish sentiments signal of 71, according to Augmento, a crypto sentiment analyst platform.
Also, the weekly close above $47,000 confirms the start of a new bull trend. Sustaining this level could enable more gains ahead. The Relative Strength Index or RSI shows Bitcoin is overbought at 69. This signals strong buying pressure and market optimism.
