Bitcoin price has consolidated between $56,000 support and $59,000 resistance so far this week. After setting both a lower high and lower low last week, BTC/USD saw a reaction higher by the end of the last weekend.

Bulls set a slightly lower high again at the $59,000 mark. The resistance was tested several times, with clear rejections each time, indicating bearish momentum slowly taking over.

Since the last retest of upside, the Bitcoin price action has started to consolidate in a very narrow range at the $56,000 support. Therefore, we can expect BTC/USD to finally break lower and continue along with the overall several-week bearish trend later this week.

Bitcoin Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bearish today as we saw upside rejected yesterday once more, leading back to the $56,000 support. Likely BTC/USD is now ready to test further downside, meaning that the current support should be broken later today.
