BTC/USD 4-hour chart: BTC current tests $59,000
On the 4-hour chart, we can see the Bitcoin price rallying to $59,000, where selling pressure could return later today as bears are looking for another lower high to be set.
Bitcoin price has found strong support at the $56,000 mark this week. After declining from $69,000 during the middle of the month, the support was reached first on the 19th of November.
Retracement to $60,000 followed, setting a clear lower high before selling pressure returned. Over the weekend, BTC/USD slowly declined back to $56,000, with a small consolidation formed on Monday.
After several attempts to break lower, the Bitcoin price action started to move higher late yesterday. Currently, BTC/USD has reached the $59,000 mark, which is an area where another lower high will likely be set over the next 24 hours, given the current market sentiment. Therefore, we will likely see BTC test downside again by the end of the week.
Bitcoin Price Analysis: Conclusion
Bitcoin price analysis is bearish today as we expect not much further upside after a steady retracement over the last 24 hours from the retest of the $56,000 mark. Likely BTC/USD will set another lower low, before moving to finally break below the current swing low and continue the overall several-week bearish trend.
