Bitcoin price has finally shown signs of failure for the consolidation area that was seen over the past weeks. Ever since a slightly lower local high was set on Wednesday, BTC/USD started to push for a break lower.

Yesterday, a quick break below $29,000 consolidation support was seen during the middle of the day. However, a quick recovery followed back to the previous high, indicating that further preparations are needed for BTC to reach $27,500 next major support.

Overall, more downside can be expected over the next days as the $29,000 support has already been breached. Likely the next target at $27,500 will be soon reached, opening the way for more downside early in June.

Bitcoin price analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bearish today as we saw further consolidation with bearish momentum after a quick spike lower and recovery yesterday. Therefore, BTC/USD should continue to decline, with the first obvious target to the downside being the $27,500 previous major support.
