Bitcoin price action saw a fake breakout from the previous consolidation area at the end of last week. After briefly testing the $28,000 mark, BTC/USD rejected the downside and started to pivot higher.

On Monday, BTC saw a strong push higher to the $31,000 major resistance. Break higher followed after some consolidation, leading to a new high at $32,500, indicating that the market has turned increasingly bullish.

Yesterday, further upside was clearly rejected, leading Bitcoin price to begin reversal. Push lower indeed followed earlier today, quickie leading below $31,000. Overall, considering the price action seen over the last hours, BTC should drop back to the $29,000 major support over the next days.

Bitcoin price analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bearish today as the market has started to rapidly decline since morning. Therefore, we expect the $30,000 mark to be broken next and BTC/USD to drop even further by the end of the week.
