During the beginning of the year, Bitcoin price continued to consolidate above $46,000 support until the beginning of this week. On the 5th of January, BTC/USD saw heavy selling return, quickly leading to around 9 percent loss to the $42,500 mark. 

A day later, more downside was tested, leading to a further low reached at $41,000. Since then, BTC has retested the $42,500 previous local support as resistance and began to consolidate.

A brief move below $41,000 was quickly rejected yesterday, indicating the return of buyers in the market. Therefore, we expect the Bitcoin price to start recovering next week, with the $42,500 mark being the first target to be broken.

Bitcoin Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bullish today as we expect more upside to follow after rejection from the $41,000 support was seen again yesterday. Likely BTC/USD is currently preparing to finally reverse and retrace the loss seen this week.
