Bitcoin price has seen more downside this week. After losing around 12 percent at the end of December, BTC/USD consolidated above $46,000 major support for several days.

However, despite the support holding, further local lower lows were set as the market consolidated in an increasingly tighter range. On the 5th of January, bulls gave up, leading to a quick drop of around 9 percent.

More downside followed early yesterday, leading to the next support at $41,000. From there, a reaction higher was seen, indicating that sellers are likely exhausted. Since then, the Bitcoin price has consolidated around $42,000.

The current consolidation likely will resolve to further move higher. Since bears are exhausted after such a massive selloff over a couple of days, the market needs to retrace. A potential target to look for is the $44,000 mark, with a much stronger one at the $46,000 previous major resistance.

Bitcoin Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bullish today as bears are likely exhausted after another slight drop yesterday led to $41,000 support. Target to the upside for BTC/USD is located at $44.000 and would offer a decent retracement.
