Bitcoin price action has continued to retrace since the start of April. After several attempts to break higher at the beginning of the month, BTC/USD quickly dropped to $43,000 on the 7th of April.

More downside followed to $42,000 on the 8th of April. It briefly reclaimed some of the losses as BTC rallied above $43,000. However, the bears quickly regained control, leading to more downside tests overnight.

By midday, the Bitcoin price had already dipped past the $41,000 next support, indicating the strength of the selling pressure. We expect to reach the next support at $40,000 by the end of the day, a very deep retracement from the massive rally in March.

Bitcoin price analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bearish today as we have seen a substantial decline since late yesterday. The $41,000 support did not offer much respite, likely leading BTC/USD to $40,000 next.
