What occurs consequent, he argued, may proceed that pattern – and make it last more than the overall consensus suggests.
“My target of $5,500 is shortly below today’s low. But I think the surprise power be in the duration and nature of market,” he wrote.
“I am thinking about a low in July 2020. That will wear out bulls faster than a price correction.”
Price halvings earlier than block reward halvings

“I expect way more volatility. Short term disheartened is all I’m saying. And don’t expect price will repeat past halvenings,” he declared.
