Bitcoin price trades in a symmetrical triangle pattern over the past month after a higher low was established above $30,000, and the following rally set a high around $36,500. From there, BTC/USD declined and formed a clear descending trendline of resistance.

Over the past weeks, BTC attempted to break higher. However, increasingly lower highs were set. Additionally, the swing low above $32,000 that was set on the 8th of July formed an ascending support trendline together with the previous lows set in June.

This price action development means that Bitcoin price is essentially trading in an increasingly tighter range. Breakout to either side will indicate where the market is headed over the following weeks.

However, currently, BTC/USD has established another lower high and higher low along the ascending support trendline, and we can expect another push high over the next 24 hours. From there, the trading range will become extremely tight, and we can expect a breakout to either side by the end of this week.

Bitcoin Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bullish for the next 24 hours as a higher low has been set overnight around the $33,000 previous support. Therefore, we can expect BTC/USD to rally higher later today and reach the several-week descending resistance trendline again.
