I searched here for posts on historical price movements following Bitcoin halving but didn't find much. I found some old posts that inquired about the anticipated price changes expected for future halvings, but my question is not speculative in nature, but about what has actually happened to the price of bitcoin during past halving events. Can anyone provide a brief summary of what has happened within a few days or weeks to BTC price (or even of other relevant cryptos) in the past when a having has occured?
First halving happened on 2012-11-28, the price was around $12, after the event the prices started to rally and by April 10th, 2013 it reached over $250, after which it crashed to around $60.
Second halving happened on 2016-07-09, the price was around $575, after the event it fluctuated for a couple of months and then we know what happened next.. $20k top and now it is around $3.5k
The third halving will happen approximately on May 25th 2020 Source and countdown: https://www.bitcoinblockhalf.com/
