Overall, Bitcoin has become bearish over the past few days. After rallying by almost 20 percent from $51,000 at the end of March, the market found strong resistance at the $60,000 mark. As BTC/USD price approached this resistance, we saw a substantial reduction for the previously bullish price momentum.
At the end of March and the beginning of February, the Bitcoin price action moved sideways until support around $58,000 was broken on the 3rd of April. From there a lower high was set around $59,500, and the market reversed again. This resulted in another push lover over the last 24 hours, with another lower low being set at the $55,500 mark.
Currently, Bitcoin has started to push higher after consolidating for several hours above the $55,500 support. First resistance at $57,000, which previously served as support, is likely to offer some resistance. However, when considering the overall bearish wave, we are likely to see BTC/USD retrace higher towards the next resistance level at $58,000.
From there, the Bitcoin price action will likely reject further upside and set another lower high. This means that further downside should be seen later this week, with the $54,000 level as the next target for the next downswing lower.
If the $54,000 level is reached, the bearish momentum should start to diminish as the market price would have retraced enough of the previous gains. Therefore, bulls would have a good incentive to start pushing the market higher, which should lead to a reversal back to the upside.
Bitcoin Price Prediction: Conclusion
Bitcoin price prediction is bearish as the market has broken below the previous support around $57,000 and moved lower until support was found at $55,500. Right now, we expect BTC/USD to move higher and retrace some of the loss seen overnight as it likely prepares to set another lower high. The first resistance level is seen at $57,000, which is likely to be broken. The next resistance is located around $58,000.
