Bitcoin price action has seen steady retrace earlier in the week as double top reversal was formed below $21,000. Steady move back to $20,000 followed over several days, setting a consolidation range.

However, the following move higher managed to break past the $21,000 previous resistance after some quick reaction. Eventually, new high was set at $21,500, with a steady move lower seen since.

Likely Bitcoin price action will continue even lower overnight, opening the way for further retrace early next week. If another higher low is set above $20,000, we expect BTC/USD to attempt another wave higher later in the month. Otherwise, if previous support fails to hold, a lot more retrace could be seen over the rest of the month.

Bitcoin price analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bearish today as we have seen a steady retrace from the newly set swing high at $21,000 over the last 24 hours. Since no signs of bullish momentum were seen during the day, we expect BTC/USD to drop even lower and retrace past the $21,000 support.
