Bitcoin had seen steady sideways action since the end of last week when it retraced from the $25,500 support. From there, support was established at around $29,000, while resistance was at $31,000.

This week, BTC/USD moved around this price area with several retests both ways, indicating indecision. Therefore, until a clear break lower is seen, the next market direction is still not fully clear.

However, considering that a slightly lower high was set previously and that the current test of upside failed to breach $30,000 significantly, we could soon see a break to the downside.

Bitcoin price analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bearish today as the market has failed to reach above $30,000 and stay there. Therefore, another lower local high has been set, and we can expect BTC/USD to drop even further early next week, with the $27,500 mark as the next target.
