Will BTC reach new ATH before halving?

Bitcoin (BTC) price skyrocketed past the $51,000 level on Wednesday morning, recouping all losses suffered as the benchmark crypto mirrored stocks on Tuesday.

The gains have seen the pioneer crypto reach a market capitalization of $1 trillion, a milestone last seen in December 2021. 

According to data from CoinGecko, the price of Bitcoin hovered around $51,500 early morning on February 14. The BTC/USD pair traded more than 2% up across major cryptocurrency exchanges, with prices on Coinbase having shot to an intraday high of $51,708 as of writing.

As BTC bulls eye a higher move, is Bitcoin poised for a march to a new all-time high pre-halving? With BTC showing fresh signs of an upside continuation, some analysts are saying the cryptocurrency could surge to higher levels in coming weeks. Crypto investor and analyst WhalePanda noted on X:

It’s very simple now. You sell your #Bitcoin , you get left behind. There are no dips to buy.
Those CPI numbers and the psychological $50k would’ve dumped us back to $44-45k pre-ETFs.
They tried, they failed, and now they have to rebuy higher. They aren’t going to try again.

The upcoming BTC halving and the massive demand witnessed within the spot Bitcoin ETF market are key catalysts. For the latter, there were nearly $631 million in inflows on Tuesday. 

Data shows BTC spot ETFs have recorded net inflows for thirteen consecutive trading days, with cumulative net inflows at $3.89 billion as of February 13.

Bitcoin’s halving is set for April this year.
