Bitcoin price action has seen a reversal over the weekend. After previously setting a new higher high at $48,000, BTC/USD quickly dropped to $45,000, where a higher low was set.

However, the following rally did not last for long. BTC set a lower local high at $47,000 and formed a clear descending trendline of resistance. Since then, a steady decline has been seen along the trendline, indicating that more downside should be tested soon.

Likely the next target at $45,000 will be broken over the next 24 hours. From there, an important level to watch is the previous local low at $44,500. If this support breaks, a lot more downside can be expected for the Bitcoin price action later in the month.

Bitcoin price analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bearish today as we have seen clear rejection for upside and a steady move below $46,000. Therefore, BTC/USD is likely headed to test further downside, with the closest support located at $45,000.
