Bitcoin price saw reversal after a strong rally last week. From the, $44,400 previous high, BTC/USD has already retraced almost 8 percent to the $41,000 support.

Furthermore, a lower low was set early in the week, indicating bearish momentum dominating the market. Therefore, the current brief spike higher should result in more downside tested over the next days.

Currently, we see the $41,000 mark offering some support. However, Bitcoin price should fall below it soon and look to test the next major support at $40,000 by the end of the week.

Bitcoin Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bearish today as we expect another reversal to the downside to follow shortly. Earlier today, BTC/USD rejected upside again at $42,500, indicating that strong bearish momentum still dominates.
