A lot has been happening in the cryptocurrency market recently, but despite all the mainstream news, Bitcoin prices were consolidating for an extended while. It looks like Bitcoin prices were stagnant and the big uptrend that has been going on since 2020 has halted, with prices hovering around the 30K mark. Recently, prices were seen moving again and the traded volume started to pick up again, should we anticipate reaching another milestone?
In this article, we’re going to analyze what happened so far, where the current price is, and predict where prices might reach in the short timeframe.
Bitcoin Price Analysis – What happened to BTC?
Ever since BTC prices managed to reach and breach the 40k milestone, Bitcoin’s trend entered a downtrend, where prices were making lower highs. A double-spend rumor made prices break 30k prices for a brief period. But if we look at the bigger picture, we notice that prices are currently consolidating between 30K and 40K, with occasional fakouts.
After the Elon Musk endorsement, we notice there’s a break in the downtrend, and prices started to pick up, and now we’re closer to the upper band of the consolidation phase.
Bitcoin Price Prediction – Is Bitcoin REALLY eyeing 40k again?

In this specific case, the technicals are already in place, where a newly established uptrend happened thanks to the Elon Musk endorsement. All we need now is fundamental news in the market: New investors joining, technical advancements…
Now, where can prices go? Plotting the Fibonacci Extension clearly shows that the 40K price mark is again on BTCs radar.
