Bitcoin price action has seen a steady downswing turn into a strong upsurge over the past weeks starting from Monday. After the last spike lower to the $38,600 mark on 18 April 2022, BTC/USD quickly recovered above the previous high at $41,500.

Therefore, a strong bullish signal was seen in the market. Further upside followed as high as $43,000 until the second half of yesterday.

From there, the Bitcoin price action reversed rather quickly, declining by over 9 percent in a little over 24 hours. The last support at $39,200 is currently tested, indicating that reversal might soon begin. However, if further downside follows, we could see a lot more downside by the end of the weekend.
