Bitcoin (BTC) price in October foreshadowed by this historical pattern
October started only one day ago, but the crypto community is already rubbing its hands, anticipating a bullish month for Bitcoin, also known as "uptober." In a recent X post, Miles Deutscher, a crypto analyst with more than 360,000 followers, shared a graph of Bitcoin's average monthly performance, writing that, historically, October and November have been the best-performing months for BTC. Indeed, since 2013, Bitcoin has finished October with gains eight times out of ten. Analyst Michael van de Poppe gives another reason to be bullish on the largest crypto this month, as its price could benefit from ETF approvals and the pre-halving rally, potentially reaching highs of $40,000.
