Bitcoin price action has seen more upside this week. Since it broke out from the $42,500 mark, BTC/USD has seen another strong push higher since the beginning of the 23rd of March.

After more upside yesterday through today, BTC spiked as high as the next resistance at $45,000. The latest movement may indicate that the bulls are finally ready to reverse the several-month-long bearish momentum soon.

However, first, we expect another retracement to set a higher low. A potential area where the market may find support could be around $43,200, as local resistance was previously seen there.

If we set another higher low and the $45,000 mark gets broken, we expect more upside over the following months. Therefore, this is a critical area to watch next week.

Bitcoin price analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bearish today as the market has set another higher local high at the very strong resistance level at $45,000. Hence, we expect more retracement, likely leading to another higher local low set before more upside is tested.
