Bitcoin price action saw recovery last week, leading to a strong high local high set slightly above $44,000. The reaction higher clearly indicates an upcoming change in trend direction, meaning that we can expect more upside reached by the end of this week.

The following retracement to $42,000 established a strong higher low, further indicating bullish market structure forming. However, the following move higher did peak below $44,000, setting a slightly lower high.

Since then, the Bitcoin price action has slowly retraced and set a higher low around $42,500. Likely from there, we will see BTC/USD push higher again later this week.
