Bitcoin price action continued to decline over the past weeks and has so far lost 20 percent to the $29,500 support. This price action development was a result of a rebound from the $29,000-$30,000 support area at the end of June.

On the 29th of June, BTC/USD retraced and set another higher low, however, it failed to break new highs from there. What followed was a steady retracement with increasingly lower highs and lows set over the past weeks.

This price action development resulted in a drop to the previous major support of around $29,500. After some consolidation overnight, Bitcoin price started to rally and quickly reached the $32,000 resistance where previous support/resistance area was established. 

BTC/USD is likely to set another lower high around this area and start to push lower over the next 24 hours. Therefore, we can expect BTC to finally breach the $29,500 support later this week and start its way towards the next major support, around $27,500.

Bitcoin Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis indicates bearish momentum to follow later today as BTC/USD has regained most of the loss seen over the past days and aims to establish a lower high. Therefore, BTC/USD will likely decline further over the rest of the week and try to breach the previous major low of around $29,500 next.
