Bitcoin price action traded with strong bullish momentum last week as the previous consolidation was finally broken. New swing high was set at $21,000 last Wednesday, resulting in a swift retrace to retest $20,000.

From there, another rally began, leading back to the $21,000 mark, where a double top reversal was formed. However, BTC/USD lacked the momentum to post a strong retrace, leading to consolidation above $20,400.

Over the past hours, Bitcoin price has started to spike higher, likely as another test of the $21,000 mark needs to be made. Alternatively, a lower local high will be set, and further selling will take place over the rest of the week.

Bitcoin price analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bullish today as we have seen strong consolidation above $20,400, resulting in a quick spike higher over the past hours. Likely BTC/USD will continue even higher as a result and look to move towards the $21,000 previous swing high.
