Bitcoin price action trades with a strong bearish momentum over the past weeks after a new medium-term high was set around $36,500. This followed after another test of the $29,000-$30,000 support at the end of June, indicating that the market still wants to reverse the overall several-month bearish price action.

BTC/USD traded in an increasingly tighter range for most of this month, with a symmetrical triangle pattern formed. However, after another move lower to retest the ascending support trendline, BTC broke lower on the 13th of July. 

What followed was another clear lower low, around $31,700. From there, BTC/USD rallied yesterday and set a clear lower high around $33,000 overnight. Over the past hours, the Bitcoin price has started to push lower again, and the previous low is currently tested. This price action development should lead BTC/USD towards a lot more downside later today, with the $31,000 support mark targeted next.

Bitcoin Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bearish for the rest of the day as a strong push lower was seen over the past hours after a clear lower high was established overnight. Therefore, we expect BTC/USD to push towards the next support around $31,000 next.
