Bitcoin price action has seen a substantial increase over the last weeks after a new swing low was set around $29,500 on the 20th of July. Since then, BTC/USD has rallied by more than 40 percent until the current high of $42,500.

Additionally, the previous swing high of around $41,000 was broken, indicating that the overall market sentiment slowly shifts back to being bullish over the medium term. However, right now, BTC/USD has extended too far without a significant retracement, resulting in a strong decline over the past days to the $38,000 mark.

This Bitcoin price action development could indicate that we will see the current swing high retested and a lower high set over the next few days. If a further higher high is not set, we expect BTC/USD to start a several-week retracement once again in a similar way as during the beginning of June.

Bitcoin Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bullish for the upcoming days as a new swing low was set around $38,000 overnight, and the market has started to rally again. Therefore, we expect BTC/USD to reach back towards the previous resistance area around $41,000-$42,000 next and try to establish further highs by the end of the week.
