Bitcoin price action has seen a lot more consolidation over the past ten days as the market was indecisive on where to move next. With clear support formed at $29,000 and resistance at $31,000, BTC/USD retested both during the last days.

However, a slightly lower local high was set yesterday around $30,000, indicating a potential break lower incoming. Overnight, sellers slowly piled in, taking BTC to the critical $29,000 major support.

Break lower did indeed follow as a quick spike to $28,000 was seen during the middle of the day. Over the following hours, a quick reaction higher was seen back above $29,000, potentially indicating that more upside is to come.

Overall, a clear bearish signal has been seen in the market. Once BTC sets another lower local high, we expect more downside to be tested by the end of the month.

Bitcoin price analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bullish today as we have seen a swift drop to $28,000 being met with a strong reaction higher. Therefore, more upside can be expected, likely to set another lower high.
