The overall BTC/USD price action still trades with a several-week bearish price structure. After several higher highs were set during March and April, Bitcoin set a new all-time high at $65,000. Since the market momentum slowly decreased over this time period, bears already expected a much serious reversal.

On the 15th of April, the Bitcoin price started pushing lower until support was found at the $47,000 mark, resulting in a total retracement of over 25 percent. From there, Bitcoin consolidated for more than 24 hours and established a base from which to push higher. After a brief spike to the $47,000 mark on the 25th of April, the market started to push higher and reached the $59,000 mark after two short-term upswings.

Over the next few days, the $59,000 resistance was retested several times, indicating that the market cannot move any higher without a serious retracement. This, indeed, was true as another drop of 20 percent was seen on the 12th of May, with support found around the $47,000 mark once again.

Around the $50,000 mark, BTC/USD started to consolidate again over the past days, with the $51,500 resistance retested yesterday. This resulted in another retracement overnight with support found at the $48,000 mark this time.

Therefore, we expect the Bitcoin price action to reverse again and try to break above the $51,500 resistance. From there, the next resistance is relatively close by at the $53,000 mark. Once it is reached, BTC/USD price structure would start to become bullish once again.

Bitcoin Price Prediction: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price prediction is bullish as the market has set a higher local low, indicating that bulls are establishing a base from which to push higher over the next 24 hours. Once the next resistance at $51,500 is broken, we expect Bitcoin to rally even further over the next week.
