Bitcoin price action has seen further decline over the last days. After another swift break lower on Friday, the $42,000 next support was tested.

From there, BTC/USD made a quick retrace above $43,000. However, any substantial upside failed to follow as sellers quickly pushed BTC to even further lows.

Yesterday, a new several-week low at $39,500 was reached as around 9 percent were lost in less than 24 hours. Since then, the Bitcoin price has seen a slight upsurge, indicating exhaustion for sellers for now.

However, when considering the overall momentum since the beginning of the month, we expect BTC/USD to see further tests of the downside shortly.

Bitcoin price analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bearish today as we have seen only a slight recovery to $40,500, where rejection was seen during the second half of the day. Likely BTC/USD will look to test further downside over the next 24 hours as sellers are still in control.
