BTC/USD 4-hour chart: BTC prepares for a reversal?
On the 4-hour chart, we can see Bitcoin price action testing the $41,000 resistance for the second time this week with signs of exhaustion for further upside.
Bitcoin price action has traded with an extremely strong momentum over the past few days. After previous major support level of around $29,500 was tested on the 20th of July, BTC/USD rallied to $41,000 previous major swing high and rejected further upside on Monday.
From there, BTC retraced to retest the $36,500 previous resistance as a support and built up momentum for another push higher. Yesterday, BTC/USD started to rally again and reached the $41,000 resistance earlier today once again.
Currently, the $41,000 mark still gets tested with a slightly local high set again. However, we can expect a lot of selling pressure to come in for any further attempt. Therefore, BTC/USD is likely to decline later today and potentially start retracing most of the 35 percent upswing seen over the last days later this week.
Bitcoin Price Analysis: Conclusion
Bitcoin price analysis is bearish for the next 24 hours as previous resistance around $41,000 currently gets retested for the second time. Therefore, we expect BTC/USD to respect the resistance and move lower later today to test previous support levels.
