Bitcoin price action trades with a strong bullish momentum over the last weeks after the previous major swing low around $29,500 was retested. From there, BTC/USD rallied by more than 40 percent until the $42,500 mark was reached.

From the $42,500 mark, Bitcoin started to retrace on Sunday and reached the $38,000 mark yesterday. After a quick rally higher overnight, BTC/USD found resistance at the $40,000 mark and reversed once again.

This Bitcoin price action development has resulted in another rapid move lower today, with the previous low currently tested. BTC will likely steak past the low and target the $36,500 support over the next 24 hours.

Bitcoin Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis indicates bearish momentum to follow later today as a lower high was set overnight and BTC/USD started to decline earlier today. Therefore, we expect BTC to move past the $38,000 previous support and test the next support at $36,500.
