Those who became interested in bitcoin as a result of its halving might be tempted to stick around if the price increases though.

The price is indeed increasing steadily even after a very dull halving event. This is encouraging as to its durability and no wild swings have happened post halving, meaning that it is sitting on a solid base and isn't badly affected by market sentiment.
Many people will feel disappointed with the halving and the anticipation of big gains simply didn't happen, but Bitcoin is still trading at a relatively high price and there is certainly no reason to panic sell.
The truth of the matter is no one knows what will happen in the weeks and months following the halving.
But, no matter what happens, cryptocurrency advocates know there is never a dull day in bitcoin-land and the reward halving just adds more fuel to the excitement and speculators’ wild theories too.
