Bitcoin returns to 2022 Fib levels

The previously popular concept revolves around viewing BTC price action as more than a product of its roughly four-year halving cycles.

Instead, BTC/USD could be in a consolidation phase right now, with most of its upside potential still to come.

“Interesting. Maybe we never got the blow-off top… because it hasn’t happened yet,” Josh Olszewicz, research director at alternative wealth management firm Valkyrie reacted.
