Bitcoin price action has continued to rally over the past week after a slightly higher high was set above the $41,000 mark at the end of July. From there, BTC/USD retraced and established a clear higher low from which to push higher over the following days.

What followed was a rally of over 20 percent to the $47,000 mark. BTC/USD slowed down from there and could not reach further highs today, indicating market exhaustion after a strong rally.

This Bitcoin price action development should lead towards another retracement later this week, with the $41,000-$42,000 previous resistance likely acting as support this time. From there, BTC/USD should rally further later this month and try to reach the next major resistance area around $53,00.

Bitcoin Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bearish for the upcoming days as the market could not breach the $47,000 resistance and has since slowed down its advance. Therefore, BTC/USD needs another retracement over the next days before another rally can be attempted.
