Bitcoin price action has seen a strong increase over the past weeks. After BTC/USD moved past the $42,000 resistance, an increase of over 25 percent was seen from the $38,000 support, with a clear higher swing high set around the $48,000 yesterday.

This price action development indicates taht the market structure has turned bullish once again, and we can expect BTC to rally higher over the next week. However, the bullish momentum has slowed down over the past days, with only a slightly higher high set yesterday.

Overnight, Dogecoin retraced until support was found around $46,000, as well as the 50-period moving average. BTC/USD should rally higher from this price area later today and continue its way towards the $50,000 mark next. 

Alternatively, if the Bitcoin price fails to reach further highs, a more substantial retracement could lead BTC/USD towards a retest of the previous high around the $42,000 mark.

Bitcoin Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bullish for the upcoming days as another higher low currently gets established after a retracement overnight. Therefore, we expect BTC/USD to continue rallying next week and continue its way towards the $50,000 mark.
