Bitcoin price action has continued to trade along with the several-week long bearish momentum. From the $32,000 resistance, BTC/USD lost over 20 percent to the $25,500 mark.

From there, a quick reaction higher followed early on Thursday, indicating that retracement had begun. More upside did indeed follow as BTC retraced as high as the $31,000 mark.

Yesterday, Bitcoin price consolidated around the new high as sellers slowly took over the momentum again. Drop lower began overnight, leading back below the $29,500 support.

Since then, BTC/USD has slowly traded even lower, meaning that another push lower can be expected soon. Likely the $27,500 next support will be tested by the end of the week, with a potential for a higher low to be finally set. 

Bitcoin price analysis: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price analysis is bearish today as we have seen selling pressure take over late yesterday, leading back below the $29,500 support. BTC/USD is now free to drop until the $27,500 mark, where some reaction higher could be seen tomorrow.
