BTC/USD opened at $37,253, after a slight rally yesterday. Over the past hours, Bitcoin started to retrace again, indicating that a new higher low will be set before bulls attempt to push BTC/USD higher once again.

The overall market starts to lose its bearish momentum over the past few days. Several higher lows have been set so far, indicating bulls building momentum over the last 24 hours. 

However, BTC/USD still has failed to set a significantly higher high, meaning that the Bitcoin price action is trading in an increasingly tighter range over the last 24 hours. Therefore, until a higher high above the $40,000 mark is set, we can expect further sideways action over the next few days.

Once a higher high above the $40,000 is set, we can expect a quick move higher, with the first minor support at $42,000 and the next at $47,000. From there, bulls will take over the market momentum and likely push the Bitcoin price to a new all-time high over the next weeks.

Bitcoin Price Prediction: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price prediction is bullish as the market continues slowly moving higher. Currently, a short-term retracement looks to retest the several days ascending support trendline. Therefore, BTC/USD is expected to move higher over the next 24 hours to set another higher high and look to breach the $40,000 once again later this week.
