  • Bitcoin's recent tumble seems to have spiked volatility as BTC remains rangebound.
  • Ahead of Bitcoin's fourth halving, some altcoins are likely to yield unusually high returns. 
  • Major altcoins have like AXS & IMX have multi-million dollar token unlocks this week.

This week’s outlook is interesting since Bitcoin (BTC) has swept the range low on the daily time frame. This development, coupled with the upcoming halving event, suggests that a short-term correction play is in the works.

Going forward, investors need to monitor buy-the-dip opportunities closely since BTC tends to continue its bull run after halving.

Bitcoin’s breakdown

Bitcoin (BTC) has breached the $70,000 level and crashed nearly 15% over the weekend. This move has swept the range low, as discussed in a previous article. But the down move failed to dip into the weekly imbalance, extending from $53,120 to $59,111. 

With no major macroeconomic event to influence the directional bias, the sideways movement is likely to continue.
