Bitcoin price action has traded in a strong bearish momentum over the past weeks after a new swing high was set around $36,500. BTC/USD lost more than 20 percent until support was found around the $29,500 mark on the 20th of July.

What followed was a quick rebound from the support to the $32,000 mark. After some consolidation below the $33,000 resistance level as well as a several-week descending trendline, BTC/USD spiked higher on Friday.  

Resistance was found below the $35,000 mark overnight, with any further upside rejected. This price action development indicates that bears are exhausted as of now and we can expect a several-day-long retracement next week. The first obvious support level to test is located around the $32,000 mark, with the $31,000 mark being a more conservative support level where to expect a higher low set over the next week. 

Overall, BTC/USD price action has become a lot more bullish after a strong spike above the descending resistance line and previous swing high tested around $34,500.

Bitcoin Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis indicates bearish momentum to follow next week as BTC/USD has gained around 18 percent since Tuesday and further upside gets rejected as of now. Therefore, we expect BTC to start retracing and test previous support levels to set a higher low and start heading towards the previous all-time high over the following weeks.
