One of the worst performances is seen for Stellar (XLM), which has lost almost 7 percent and trades at $0.61.
Bitcoin price prediction: Bitcoin peaks below $65,000, targets $62,000 in a retracement
Today, BTC/USD opened at $63,588 after a strong rally yesterday took the market from $60,000 to $63,500. Earlier today, BTC/USD pushed even higher until the Bitcoin price action reversed just below the $65,000 mark. Strong retracement has been made over the past hours as the market retraced to $63,000. Therefore, we could see further downside later today as the previous major resistance at $62,000 likely be retested.
Bitcoin price movement in the last 24 hours

BTC/USD 4-hour chart – BTC spiked lower over the past hours as it looks to retest $62,000
On the 4-hour chart, we can see sharp rejection over the past hours towards the $62,500 mark. Over the next hours, we can expect a pause in bearish price action momentum. However, overnight, BTC/USD could push lower to retest the $62,000 mark as support.
Overall, Bitcoin price continues gaining momentum as a new all-time high below $65,000 has been set earlier today. This is a result of several day upswing from the last major low around $55,500, which was set after the market previously failed to move above $60,000 resistance and retraced in an ABC pattern.
Monday, we saw BTC/USD consolidate below $61,000 as the Bitcoin price action built up momentum to move higher. Yesterday, BTC started pushing higher and quickly pushed through the previous all-time high of around $62,000. From there, the bullish momentum continued and, after a slight slowdown around the $63,500 mark, made another small spike higher to 64,783 all-time high.
Currently, the Bitcoin price action looks to retrace some of the gains, with a new low at $62,500 already established. Further support is seen at the previous major resistance at $62,000. If Bitcoin retests this level, a re-entry into the market would mean a relatively good risk/reward potential for the upcoming days. The next target to the upside is set at the $70,000 round number price mark.
Alternatively, if BTC moves back above $64,000, we could see a continuation higher later today. However, without a decent retracement and the following consolidation, this would be a very uncertain move. Therefore, the best option is to wait for further Bitcoin price action development.
Bitcoin Price Prediction: Conclusion
Bitcoin price prediction is bearish for the next 24 hours as a new all-time has been set just below the $65,000 mark, and BTC/USD looks to retrace some of the gains. Therefore, we expect Bitcoin price to consolidate and retrace some more before a much more serious push higher is made later this week.
