Bitcoin price action had seen a steady retrace begin since last Wednesday, when a new swing higher high was reached at $24,250. From there, a quick reaction lower and a retest of upside that set a lower high at $23,600 confirmed that more downside was about to follow.

Later, over the weekend, BTC/USD did indeed push even lower, eventually setting a further low local high at $23,000. From there, a strong push lower began early Monday, leading to a quick spike past the $21,500 next support.

Further downside was seen later today, leading past the $21,000 mark with low momentum. Likely this will means that bears are exhausted for now, and a retest of upside is needed next to set another lower high before any further drop can be attempted later in the week.

Bitcoin price analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bearish today as we have seen a strong push come to an end as soon as the $21,00 mark was slowly broken. Therefore, bears are exhausted, and retrace higher should follow next.
