BTC/USD 4-hour chart: BTC to set higher low at $46,000?

Bitcoin price action has slowed down its decline over the past days as support was found around $46,000. Since BTC/USD previously lost around 12 percent from the $52,000 swing high, we expect bears to finally be exhausted.

Additionally, the market saw the quick rejection of further downside on 31st of December, leading to the top of the local range at $48,000. Since then, BTC has consolidated below the resistance, with a very slow retracement.

Likely the $46,000 will be the new higher low from which Bitcoin price action will rally higher over the next days. Once a higher high is set above $48,000, the market momentum will turn bullish once again.

Bitcoin Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bullish today as we expect the current consolidation to resolve with a break higher. Likely BTC/USD will move to the $49,500 mark once the $48,000 current resistance is broken.
