The overall market trades with a strong bearish momentum over the past weeks after a higher high was set around $36,500. From the $36,500 high, the market retraced and subsequently failed to establish another higher high. 

On the 4th of July, BTC/USD established a higher low around $36,000, and started pushing lower from there, indicating that bears have taken over market momentum again. What followed was a sharp move to the $32,000 mark earlier this week and another lower high around $34,000 set yesterday.

Overnight, the Bitcoin price continued moving sideways below $34,000 and a strong base has been established as of now. BTC/USD will likely start heading lower over the next 24 hours, with the next target around $31,000.

Bitcoin Price Analysis: Conclusion
