Historically, Bitcoin’s interaction with the 200 DMA has served as a reliable indicator of bullish or bearish trends. The long-term chart from 2014 to 2024 demonstrates multiple instances where the price crossing above the 200 DMA has preceded significant upward momentum, while crossings below often signal extended bearish phases.

Current price action around the 200 DMA suggests caution as Bitcoin’s market dynamics adjust post-halving, potentially signaling the end of the recent bullish cycle.
