Bitcoin price action has traded within an increasingly tighter consolidation range since the last spike lower was seen last Wednesday. From there, BTC/USD reacted higher to the $18,000 resistance, with further lower local highs and higher lows set since.

Over the past days, failure to break the upper resistance at $17,000 resulted in further low volatility movement yesterday, slowly leading back toward the middle of the trading range.

Selling pressure should continue later in the day, likely as Bitcoin price action will look to briefly dip below $16,500. Once that is done, we could see further attempts to break above the $17,000 upper consolidation resistance next week.

Bitcoin price analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bearish today as we have seen failure to reverse over the past week and a slightly lower local high set overnight. Therefore, BTC/USD has likely headed lower once again, potentially to retest the $16,000 support or create another local low above it.
