The overall market trades with a bearish price action structure over the past weeks as bears continue looking for lower lows after the market failed to break above the $2,900 resistance earlier this month.

As we saw earlier this week, the Ethereum price briefly held the $2,200 previous support level, however, after more than 24 hours of consolidation, bears pushed the market lower, and, after a retest of the $2,200 support as a resistance, ETH/USD saw another strong push lower.

ETH/USD spiked to $1,725 initially on the 22nd of June. From there, the further downside was quickly rejected. However, after a slight upside and consolidation around the $2,000 price area, Ethereum moved lower again and approached the $1,725 support once again over the past hours.

Therefore, we can assume that further downside will be seen later today and bears will target the next support at $1,550. In this scenario, the ETH/USD price action structure will become even more bearish, meaning that a lot more downside could be seen over the next weeks.

Ethereum Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bearish for today as the market continued to move lower earlier today after a strong decline was initiated yesterday. This price action development should lead ETH/USD towards further downside over the weekend, with the $1,550 mark as the next support target.
