The overall market trades with a strong bearish momentum over the last weeks. After BTC/USD peaked at around $36,500, several lower highs were set, and a clear descending trendline was formed.

Additionally, from the past three lows in June and July, an ascending trendline of support was confirmed on the 8th of July. Therefore, Bitcoin price established a symmetrical triangle pattern, from which the market broke out on the 13th of July to the downside.

This price action development indicated that bears have taken over control again, and we can expect further downside over the following days. Bitcoin price did, indeed, move lower over the past days and reached the $31,000 support overnight.

After some initial rejection for further downside, BTC/USD made a slight move to the upside earlier today to the $32,000 mark. From there, Bitcoin pushed lower again and currently tries to breach $31,000 support again. Likely this will lead Bitcoin towards further downside later today, with the next major support target around $29,000.

Bitcoin Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bearish for today as the market declines after a retest of the $33,000 mark earlier this week. Therefore, we expect BTC/USD to break lower later today and reach the $29,000 next major support over the weekend.
