The Bitcoin price action saw mixed signals over the last week. After only a slightly higher high set above $39,000, BTC/USD immediately reversed and declined past the previous local low.

Therefore, there was a strong indication that the market could collapse once again. However, after almost reaching the $36,000 next support area, bullish momentum quickly returned late on the 3rd of February.

Over the next 24 hours, Bitcoin price gained 15 percent to the $42,000 mark. After some consolidation, indicating reversal, BTC/USD spiked higher again late yesterday. 

Since then, bulls have pushed to the next resistance at $44,000. Considering how much the market has advanced over the past days, we expect retracement to finally follow.

Bitcoin price analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bearish today as we have seen the next major resistance at $44,000 reached. From there, BTC/USD will likely reverse and look to finally retrace after a 20 percent rally.
