The overall Ethereum price action structure is still bearish for the past weeks. After the $2,900 resistance was tested several times, ETH/USD retraced by more than 40 percent until support was found around $1,725.

After retesting the $1,725 support for the second time, ETH started trending higher on the $26th of June. Over the following days, ETH/USD moved towards $2,200 resistance which previously acted as strong support. From there, we can expect Ethereum to start pushing lower along the several-week bearish momentum to try to reach further low.

However, support could still be found around $1,900 and $2,000 level. This could be the area where a higher low is set over the rest of the week. In this scenario, ETH/USD could head towards a move above the $2,250 high next. From there, Ethereum would create a much more bullish price action structure.

Ethereum Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bearish for the upcoming day as further upside was rejected overnight, and the market reversed to retrace some of the gain seen over the past days.
