Bitcoin price action has seen more downside tested over the past week. After setting a slightly lower low at $39,000 on the 23rd of February, BTC/USD made the last push lower, quickly leading to $34,500.

From there, buyers quickly regained control, leading to a slightly higher high set around $39,500. After some consolidation, another quick spike higher was seen on Friday, taking the market above $40,000 for a brief time.

Since then, the Bitcoin price action has remained calm, moving sideways below the $39,500 mark. Today another attempt to move higher was quickly rejected, leading to believe that next week will start in the red.

Bitcoin price analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bearish today as we have seen resistance at $39,500 reject further attempts to move higher. Therefore, BTC/USD is likely headed for another drop early next week, likely to set a higher low that would confirm a trend reversal.
