Bitcoin price has reached another several-month high this week. After another strong rally at the beginning of the week, BTC/USD saw the $48,000 mark reached on the 28th of April.

Consolidation followed later in the week, eventually leading to a quick drop below $45,000 previous resistance turned support. Since another strong higher local low was set, the market structure still remains bullish and more upside can be expected later in the month.

However, yesterday’s spike higher resulted in a rejection around $47,000. Therefore, more downside likely needs to be retested first, meaning that we can expect more downside by the end fo the week. 

Bitcoin price analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bearish today as we have seen sharp rejection at $47,000 and slightly bearish consolidation formed since this morning. Therefore, BTC/USD is likely headed for another test of the downside, potentially leading to a lot more downside over the weekend.
