Bitcoin price has seen bearish momentum return over the last days. After a strong beginning of the week, BTC/USD recovered to $52,000 by the 7th of December.

However, further upside was not seen as selling pressure returned. Over the following days, BTC retraced to $47,000 support, starting to consolidate above it in an indecision.

Slight bullish momentum re-appeared yesterday, taking the Bitcoin price towards the $50,000 mark. Currently, the resistance gets tested and in the case it is broken, we can expect some further upside over the next 24 hours.

Bitcoin Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bullish today as we saw a slow rally from the $47,000 support found yesterday. Likely BTC/USD will continue higher over the next hours as soon as the $50,000 resistance gets broken.
