BTC/USD 4-hour chart – Bitcoin retests $36,000
On the 4-hour chart, we can see the market retrace over the last hours and establish support at the $36,000 mark. From there, we expect the Bitcoin price action to move higher and reach the $42,000 mark.
The overall market starts to turn bullish again after a consolidation in an increasingly tighter range over the past weeks. Since the Bitcoin price action could not move any lower and several higher lows have were set, we expect BTC to start moving higher next week.
Currently the closest resistance is located around the $40,000 mark, which when broken, should lead to a higher high set above $42,000. From there, the Bitcoin price structure will turn increasingly bullish and look to breach the previous swing high at $60,000.
However, if the current support at $36,000 breaks, we will likely see the BTC/USD price structure struggle further over the next few days before another attempt to move higher is set.
Bitcoin Price Analysis: Conclusion
Bitcoin price analysis is bullish as the market moved higher over the past days and retraced to set a higher low overnight. Therefore, we can expect BTC/USD to move above the next target at $42,000 over the weekend.
