The overall cryptocurrency market continues pushing higher over the last hours. Bitcoin is up by 4 percent, while Ethereum still holds around 1.7 percent gain. The worst performance from the major altcoins is seen for Ripple, as it is down by 2.63 percent over the last 24 hours. Theta has posted the best result, with a gain of 21 percent. If the current bullish momentum persists, we should see even higher price increase by the end of today.

BTC/USD opened at $54,333 after very calm yesterday. Since then, the market has moved much higher as it looks to retest resistance at the $57,000 mark. If the bullish Bitcoin price momentum can continue later today, we are likely to see the resistance broken. Alternatively, the market will reverse and set another lower swing high, which should lead to more downside over the next few days.

Overall, Bitcoin has experienced bearish momentum over the past 10 days. After setting a new all-time high just below the $62,000 mark, BTC/USD retraced by over 10 percent and found support around $54,000.

From there the Bitcoin price unsuccessfully attempted to move higher again and peaked at the $60,000 mark. After consolidating below this area for several days, BTC reversed lower and dropped all the way back towards the previous support of $54,000.

This drop has resulted in another consolidation around the support yesterday. However, today, Bitcoin started moving higher again and currently is close to testing the $57,000 mark. Additional resistance is provided by the area between both 50 and 100 period MA`s. 

If the current Bullish Bitcoin price momentum continues, we should see this resistance break over the next hours. This could lead Bitcoin towards the next resistance of $60,000 by tomorrow and indicate that bullish momentum has taken over again.

Alternatively, if BTC/USD gets resisted by the resistance at $57,000, we could see another lower swing high set and another medium-term downswing lower. Potential next support level around $51,500 would mean another drop of around 10 percent from the current price.

Bitcoin Price Prediction: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price prediction is bullish as the market retested previous support at the $54,000 mark and currently pushed higher towards $57,000 resistance. If this resistance is broken, we can expect more upside over the next 24 hours. Alternatively, if BTC/USD rejects $57,000 resistance, we could see another medium-term push lower as the market looks to set another lower swing low.
