During the middle of January, the Bitcoin price action saw relatively calm, but bearish trading. After retracing to $40,000 on the 10th of January, a strong lower high was set around $44,000.
From there, bears took over again. Over the following days, BTC/USD retraced lower again. A quick spike higher was seen on the 20th of January to $43,500. However, substantial selling pressure was seen from there, taking BTC much lower over the next 24 hours.
Initially, BTC dropped to $38,000, with an additional drop on the 21st of January, taking the market to the current low at $34,000. In total, the Bitcoin price had lost over 20 percent in a couple of days.
Therefore, we expect bearish momentum to finally be exhausted. Likely we will see BTC/USD begin to retrace early next week, with the $36,000 mark being the first one to break on the way up.
Bitcoin Price Analysis: Conclusion
Bitcoin price analysis is bullish today as we expect recovery to follow after rejection for further downside yesterday. Likely BTC/USD has bottomed out at $34,000 and is now ready to retrace this week’s loss.
