The Bitcoin price action has seen a strong increase over the past month. After establishing a major swing low around $2,950, BTC/USD saw strong bullish momentum take over, with a total gain of more than 70 percent since.

After consolidating for almost a week below the $48,000 mark, BTC found support at the $44,000 last week. From there, a quick rally of 15 percent was seen to the current high of $50,500, where resistance was found again.

This Bitcoin price action development has resulted in a retracement over the last 24 hours as bears look to retest the $48,000 previous major resistance as support again. This support likely will be broken, as bears look to set another significant swing higher low.

However, if the $48,000 mark holds, we could see another 10-15 percent rally over the upcoming days.

Bitcoin Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bearish for today as the market continues to retrace from the $50,000 resistance after failing to move higher. Therefore, we expect BTC/USD to retrace further later today and try to establish another higher low from which to attempt a further rally.
