The overall Bitcoin price action structure is still slightly bearish over the past weeks as a further higher high was not set after the move to the $41,000 mark on the 14th of June. From the $41,000 local high, BTC/USD retraced 30 percent of the $29,000 low.

Over the past few days, this price action development resulted in a slight retracement to the $35,000 mark, which previously acted as a powerful support. From there, BTC/USD started moving lower yesterday and closed very bearish, indicating that we will see further downside over the next 24 hours.

So far, Bitcoin price has moved even lower, with the $31,000 support preventing further downside for now. However, considering the overall price action development, we can expect BTC/USD to break through the $31,000 support over the next hours and reach the next support at $29,000.

Once the $29,000 mark is reached, the next support is located at $27,500, and if reached over the following days, the overall several-week market structure has turned even more bearish, and we can expect a lot more downside from there.

Bitcoin Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bearish as the market has set a strong move to the downside after retesting the $35,000 resistance. This should lead towards further downside below the $31,000 support overnight, with the following support located around the $29,000 mark.
