Looking closer at the Ethereum price action over the past hours, we can see that the market currently has established a local consolidation.

The overall market price action is still bearish over the past weeks as the Ethereum price action continues to retrace from the $2,900 resistance. After first reaching it at the end of May, ETH/USD started to move lower until the $2,200 support.

However, the $2,200 support broke on the 18trh of June, indicating that further downside will be seen over the next few days. This indeed was true as ETH/USD spiked lower to the $2,050 mark first and, after a retracement, yesterday, spiked lower again overnight.

This price action development has led Ethereum towards a move below the $2,000 support, which means that further downside to the previous major low around $1,725 is expected over the next days.

Before the 1,725 marks can be reached, there is still minor support around $1,900. Therefore, for now, the best option is to wait for a slight retracement before Ethereum moves further.

Ethereum Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bearish for the rest of the day as we can expect the market to continue lower over the next 24 hours after some retracement higher over the next hours. This should lead Ethereum towards the next support at $1,900.
