When it comes to investing it’s important to have a sense of where the markets are going. While none of us have a crystal ball to accurately predict the price movements of Bitcoin, we can take guidance from the historical price movement. Interestingly, based on the historical price action of Bitcoin, there is some very compelling data on the likely 2022 year-end price for Bitcoin.

Looking Back on History

While the historical price action of Bitcoin is not a predictor for the future price movements of Bitcoin, there is an interesting trend that, if continues to hold true for 2022, will offer an idea as to where the price of Bitcoin will be at the end of the year.

An Interesting Anomaly

There is an interesting anomaly we have seen in the price of Bitcoin over the last 13 years.

In a Bull market, the price of Bitcoin peaks at the end of the calender year.

Let’s take a look at some examples of this strange anomaly…

In 2013, the Price of Bitcoin hit its all-time high on December 3rd.

January-December 2013

In 2015, the Price of Bitcoin hit its all-time high on December 12th.

January-December 2015

In 2016, the Price of Bitcoin hit its all-time high on January 3rd

January-December 2016

In 2017, the Price of Bitcoin hit its all-time high on December 15th

January-December 2017

In 2020, the Price of Bitcoin hit its all-time high on January 7th

January-December 2020

In these examples, the price of Bitcoin hit its all-time high right at the end of the year (during a bull market).

However, what happens during a bear market?

Interestingly, we see the same exact price action play out, just in reverse.

In a Bear market, the price of Bitcoin hits its low at the end of the calender year.

Bitcoin Price Action in a Bear Market

In a bear market, we see the exact opposite occurring with the lowest price occurring at the end of the year.

In 2014, the Price of Bitcoin hit its all-time low on January 13th

January-December 2014

In 2018, the Price of Bitcoin hit its all-time low on December 15th

January-December 2018

In 2022, we see a similar pattern occurring…

January-July 2022

While this trend in Bitcoin price does seem very compelling, it's necessary to note that there are two years where this phenomenon did not occur, in 2021 (where we saw the all-time high of Bitcoin) and 2019.

End of the Year Price Prediction for Bitcoin (2022)

This end-of-year price prediction is solely based on the prior year trends as mentioned above. While this data is compelling, it isn’t comprehensive yet does offer a sense of the future market movement.

Of course, when performing any type of analysis, it’s important to take into account many different indicators. Such indicators can include taking into account the Bitcoin Halving Cycle, current and historical fear and greed index, Bitcoin Rainbow Chart, and current and future economic events well as various technical indicators.

However, for the scope of this article, I am only looking at past historical price movements and the trend we see towards the end of the year.

If this trend holds true, and as we are currently in a bear market, it’s likely we will see Bitcoin hit its all-time low (for the year) price at the end of the year. This will be a price below $20,000 and could range anywhere between $10k-20k.
