Bitcoin price has seen a strong show of strength over the past days. After another higher low was established at $37,000 on the 28th of February, a massive rally took the market towards the next major resistance at $44,500.

From there, the market continued to test more upside, with another spike higher seen yesterday to $45,000 and today to $45,400. Both times bears quickly pushed the market price down, meaning a likely end of the current advance.

Therefore, we expect the Bitcoin price action to reverse soon and start to retrace. Likely a higher low will be set above $39,500 previous major support, allowing for a base to be set up from which to continue testing further upside later in the month.

Bitcoin price analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bearish today as we saw more attempts to reach upside being met with rejection. Therefore, we expect BTC/USD to reverse soon and start to retrace towards setting another higher low.
