The overall Ethereum price action is still bearish as the market continues to reverse from the last swing high around $2,900 set at the end of May. From there, ETH/USD retested the $2,900 mark and slowly retraced for the second time. 

The support area where Ethereum was expected to move to was located around $2,200 as this is where the 61.8 Fibonacci retracement was formed based on the previous swing low of $1,725 and high of $2,910.

This means that entering ETH/USD right now offers a good risk/reward trade setup. However, there is still a strong chance that the market will push even lower after a move higher over the next few days.

Therefore, the upcoming days are crucial for Ethereum. If ETH/USD breaks above the $2,600 mark, we can start to become very bullish again. Alternatively, if another lower low is set, ETH should continue setting lower lows to the next support at $1,900.

Ethereum Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bullish as bears could not move the market any lower overnight. This should lead to an upswing over the next few days as ETH/USD, with the next price target at the $3,200 mark.
