The overall Bitcoin price action structure is still bearish as another lower low was set earlier this week as the market spiked below the $31,000 support and started slowly trading higher from there. This price action development was seen after a more than week-long retracement from the $41,000 high, which was set on the 15th of June, and indicated that bulls have taken over.

However, after a slight retracement to the $35,000 support, where a higher low should have been established, BTC/USD spiked lower again on the $21st of June. From there, BTC moved even further until a spike to the $29,000 mark was set.

Therefore, bears are still in control, and the market sentiment is still bearish. We still need further price action development to predict better where the Bitcoin price is heading over the following weeks.

Likely we will see BTC/USD break higher over the next 24 hours and test the next resistance at $37,500. From there, a lower high could be set, and the market would reverse lower again. Alternatively, if bulls can push above the $37.500 mark, we could see bulls take over the overall price action over the next weeks and establish a higher high above the $41,000 current major medium-term high.

Bitcoin Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bullish as the market rejected further downside earlier this week and started to edge higher over the past few days. Overnight, BTC/USD set a higher local low, indicating that we can expect a move above the $35,000 mark over the next 24 hours and a push towards the next resistance at $37,500.
