Bitcoin price action has lost over 27 percent from the last swing high at $40,000. After initially failing to reach the $29,500 next major support, BTC/USD moved into consolidation for more than 24 hours.

Therefore, a base from which to reverse is established. If further tests of the downside fail, BTC should soon see a reversal and push above the $32,000 resistance.

Once that is done, Bitcoin price action should head even higher to retest previous support levels as resistance. The first obvious mark would be the $34,000 previous support. However, likely even further retracement will follow when considering the substantial loss seen over the past week.

Bitcoin price analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bullish today as we have seen more consolidation after a strong decline earlier this week. Therefore, the rejection seen over the last hours could be the catalyst for reversal over the next days.
