BTC/USD opened at $62,971 after a new all-time high was set just below $65,000 yesterday, and a retracement of around 5 percent was made over the following hours. Overnight, the Bitcoin price action moved slightly higher and reached a minor resistance level of $63,500.

Overall, Bitcoin continues gaining ground as a new all-time high was set just below the $65,000 price mark. Over the past days, BTC/USD has increased by 17 percent from the last major swing low of $55,500.

From this point, resistance around $61,000 prevented the market from moving higher for several days. However, on Tuesday, a sharp spike higher broke through both the $61,000 and $62,000 resistance levels. Highly bullish Bitcoin price action momentum slowed down around $63,500, indicating some resistance around the area.

Early yesterday, another small spike higher was set as the market peaked just below the $65,000. Over the following hours, BTC/USD started to retrace rapidly as it dropped by 5 percent until support was found around the $62,000 previous resistance. Further downside was rejected, and a new higher low was established at $61,277.

Overnight, BTC/USD started slowly pushing higher again until local resistance around $63,500 was reached. Right now, Bitcoin respects this price mark, meaning that we will likely see consolidation around this resistance and the $62,000 support over the following hours.

If Bitcoin breaks above the $63,500 resistance, we can expect further upside, with the $65,000 current all-time high resistance being the level to watch. If Bitcoin price momentum can continue moving higher, we should reach the major price target at $70,000 over the next few days.

As mentioned in our previous Bitcoin price prediction, the $62,000 previous major resistance was retested as support late yesterday.

Bitcoin Price Prediction: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price prediction is bullish; however, we expect the market to consolidate later today around the $62,000 – $63,500 price range. When the $63,500 local resistance is broken, we expect another push higher as bulls attempt to push the Bitcoin price to even further highs.
