Ethereum price still attempts to regain some of the loss seen in June after support was established around $1,725. From there, ETH/USD moved higher again and reached the $2,400 mark over the following weeks.

However, since only a slightly lower high was set, we can assume that Ethereum has lost its momentum and further downside can be expected over the next weeks. Yesterday we saw ETH/USD set a higher low around $2,100, which will likely result in another push higher over the following days.

When considering that the previous swing high was only slightly higher, we could see a lower high finally set and Ethereum move lower from there. Likely ETH/USD will find resistance around the $2,300 mark and pivot lower from there.

In this case, the next major downside target is located around the $2,000 mark, and if reached, will likely send Ethereum into a low more downside later this month.

Ethereum Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bullish today as the market looks to regain some of the loss seen over the past few days. The next resistance target is located around $2,300 and could serve as the area where a lower high is set as the several-day bullish momentum has turned bearish again.
