Bitcoin price has shown signs of strength so far this week. After previously continuing to set higher lows, the previous resistance at $38,500 was eventually broken overnight to the 1st of February.

Later on Tuesday, BTC/USD peaked at $39,300, leading to consolidation and a drop lower during the second half of yesterday. Overnight, the selloff continued, leading to the previous low tested.

After the support around $37,000 prevented more downside at first, a quick spike lower was seen today, leading to the belief that sellers want to regain control. However, considering the substantial decline over the past 24 hours, we could expect some upsurge overnight before more downside is tested.

Bitcoin price analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bearish today as we expect more downside to be tested over the next 24 hours. However, some upsurge could be seen overnight as the $36,500 mark seems to offer support over the last hours.
