Bitcoin price action has rapidly advanced higher over the second half of March. Previous major swing highs at $46,000 were broken effortlessly on the 27th of March, with further upside following as high as $48,000.

However, further upside is yet to follow as bulls are exhausted once more. The consolidation formed over the last days has been a clear warning that retracement is about to begin, likely leading back to previous resistance levels being retested as support.

A quick spike lower did indeed follow earlier today. BTC/USD has already broken past $46,000, with the next target at $45,000 probably likely tested soon. Likely another higher low will be set around there, creating a base from which to continue higher next week.

Bitcoin price analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bearish today as the market has finally broken out of consolidation and spiked to $46,000 previous major resistance turned support. If the current momentum continues, BTC/USD should quickly move to $45,000 next support target.
