Bitcoin price has seen a continuous decline over the past weeks. After setting the previous swing lower high slightly above $59,000, BTC/USD saw a sharp selloff last Friday, leading to a new lower low set around $53,500.

From there, Bitcoin consolidated over the weekend before rapidly moving higher overnight to Monday. At first, the $58,000 mark offered resistance, with a further spike higher leading BTC to the $59,000 previous major resistance on Monday.

Since then, we have seen the Bitcoin price action consolidating mostly around $57,000 – $58,000 price area, with the $59,000 briefly tested twice more. The last retest was met with strong selling pressure a couple of hours ago, indicating that we can expect more downside to come over the next 24 hours.

Bitcoin Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bearish today as another rejection for the upside was seen at the $59,000 resistance. Therefore, we expect BTC/USD to move towards the $56,000 support again later in the day, potentially leading to a more substantial drop later.
