The overall market trades within a neutral price action momentum. After retracing more than 60 percent in May, ETH/USD established a clear swing low at $1,725, and the following retracement to the upside set a clear resistance at $2,900.

What followed was a consolidation in an increasingly tighter range for the past weeks with higher lows and retests of the $2,900 resistance. Therefore, once the Ethereum price action can manage to break above the $2,900 mark we can expect a lot more upside over the next weeks. Until then, we should see Ethereum continue moving sideways.

Over the past days, we saw Ethereum failing to move to the $2,900 mark, and setting a slightly lower low after retesting the $2,600 mark. From there, ETH rallied over the past days to make another attempt to break above the $2,600 resistance. 

However, bulls could not push the market any higher yesterday, resulting in a slow retracement to the $2,500 mark overnight. This indicates that ETH should see further downside later this week as bears likely prepare to test the $2,200 support again.

Alternatively, if the $2,600 mark breaks, we could see a more bullish market development scenario over the next few days. 

Ethereum Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bearish as the market still respects resistance around $2,600. This means that we expect ETH/USD to push lower again over the next days and retest the $2,200 support.
