Overall, Bitcoin continues trading in a bullish market structure as both major higher high and low was set in March. However, after moving higher to attempt to set another higher high at the end of March, the market momentum saw a slowdown, with consolidation formed below the $60,000 mark.
During the first days of April, BTC/USD retraced and set another higher low, around $55,500. From there, the Bitcoin price action pushed higher and eventually breached the $60,000 resistance. After a quick spike lower to $58,500, the market started consolidating around $60,000.
Yesterday we saw Bitcoin attempt to move higher again with a failure as bears quickly pushed the market back towards local support at $59,200. After some further consolidation, BTC/USD moved higher overnight, leading to another attempt to break above the $61,000 level. As of now, the market rejected further upside again. Therefore, we expect another move lower later today.
BTC/USD will likely found support at the $59,200 mark first. Although, considering how the market previously reacted to several failed attempts to break higher at the beginning of April, we could see a quick spike towards $58,000 support. From there, BTC/USD will have a much better base from which to attempt to break the previous all-time high resistance of $62,000 finally.
Bitcoin Price Prediction: Conclusion
Bitcoin price prediction is bearish as BTC/USD failed to move higher earlier and currently looks to set a bearish rejection pin bar candle. Therefore, we should see Bitcoin push lower later today, with the first support likely seen at $59,200.
