Top Bitcoin Analyst Says This Data to Trump Bitcoin Halving Impact

Bitcoin price has dropped more than 17% ahead of Bitcoin halving, the most-awaited event of the year. Experts have pointed out different reasons for the drop including historical pre-halving drop, repricing of US Fed interest rate cut expectations, and on-chain data. Top analyst Markus Thielen believes a next week’s data is more crucial for markets than Bitcoin halving.

Bitcoin Correction to Continue Next Week?

After an urgent update to its clients that Bitcoin and Ethereum are breaking crucial support levels, Markus Thielen, CEO of crypto research firm 10x Research, in a new report reveals a key event next week to trump Bitcoin halving’s impact.

Crypto returns are typically defined by two significant factors – the cycle and the macro environment. Bitcoin has a four- year cycle and macro factors have certainly impacted BTC price direction.

In Oct 2022 when Markus Thielen was at crypto services provider Matrixport, he forecasted bottom in Bitcoin and BTC price prediction of $63,000 in March before Bitcoin halving. Their models predicted a sharp decline in CPI inflation that would cause a massive rally in Bitcoin and tech stocks.

“Although changes in growth, inflation, and central bank policies didn’t impact Bitcoin crypto prices for the last twelve months, those macro factors might now be the most critical again, says Markus Thielen.

Moreover, the US 10-year Treasury yield also increased to 4.389%, its highest level since November, and Bitcoin moves in the opposite direction to DXY and the 10-year treasury yield. Thus, macro factors have now turned crucial for predicting Bitcoin price direction.
