Overall Bitcoin has seen huge retracement over the past few days. After a new all-time high was set just below $65,000, BTC/USD started setting lower lows and highs. 

Yesterday we saw the Bitcoin price action set another lower high, around $62,500. After some initial push lower the market did find some support at the $60,000 mark. However, overnight, BTC/USD started moving lower again. Previous support levels at $59,500 and $57,000 were quickly broken without any price reaction. What followed was a further spike lower towards $51,500.

Right now, BTC has regained some of the loss as it trades below the $57,000 resistance. Once bulls can push the market price back above it, we expect to move towards the next resistance at $59,500. From there, the market will likely start consolidating for some time as most of the loss will be regained.

Next week we will likely see whether this sharp move lower indicates a much larger trend reversal. After setting a new swing high, we expect that a new higher low will be set around the $55,500 previous support. However, if a further downside is seen and the market retests the $51,500 low, we could see a much longer, medium-term trend reversal or at least a several-week consolidation.

Bitcoin Price Prediction: Conclusion 

Bitcoin price prediction is bullish as a further downside was quickly rejected after a quick spike lower overnight towards the $51,500 support. Therefore, we expect further upside later today as bulls try to regain some of the loss and push towards the next resistance at $59,500.
