Bitcoin price found support at $46,000 last week after previously declining over 10 percent. Reaction higher to $48,000 was seen shortly after and retested several times since.

Over the weekend, BTC/USD had returned to the $48,000 resistance again, with further rejection for upside seen until bears pushed the market lower for the third time to the $46,000 support yesterday.

Quick reversal was seen from there, leading the Bitcoin price higher over the last 24 hours. However, since the upside was quickly rejected above $47,500, we expect the market to continue consolidating in the current week-long range.

Bitcoin Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bearish today as another rejection for upside was seen over the past hours. Therefore, BTC is not yet ready to break higher, and further consolidation is needed.
