Bitcoin price action has traded with strong selling pressure over the first half of October. After the last spike lower, reaction higher was seen at the $16,000 support last Thursday.

From there, BTC/USD set a local lower high at $18,000 and has since consolidated in an increasingly tighter range with both a lower high and slightly higher low set at $17,000 and $16,000, respectively.

Yesterday, Bitcoin price action attempted to move higher once more. However, resistance was strong around $17,000 as momentum was weak throughout the day, leading BTC to form a local double-top reversal.

 Slight selling pressure has returned since, indicating that another pivot lower will be seen overnight. In case sellers can gain momentum, we should see an aggressive test of the $16,000 support. 

In case the support breaks, a lot more downside could follow over the next weeks. Alternatively, BTC will attempt to finally set a higher high and create a much stronger retrace towards the previous major support level at $20,000.

Bitcoin price analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bearish today as we have seen failure to break through the previous local high at $17,000 and slight selling over the past hours. Therefore, BTC/USD is likely to move even lower and attempt another break past the $16,000 current major swing low.
