The overall market structure has turned bearish again over the past week. After Ethereum reached the $2,400 mark on the 7th of July, two sharp spikes lower were seen, pushing the Ethereum price to the $1,900 mark.

This price action development was due to the inability of Ethereum to set substantially higher highs as bulls got exhausted. Therefore, a new medium-term lower low was set, indicating that the overall market structure is still bearish after the massive retracement we saw in May. This indicates that ETH/USD is set to drop even further later this month. 

Yesterday a sharp rally was seen to $2,000, with a strong rejection for further downside. Over the past hours, ETH/USD has already started to move lower, likely resulting in another wave to the downside of more than 10 percent over the weekend, with the $1,725 support as the next major target.

Ethereum Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bearish for today as bulls quickly tested the $2,000 mark overnight and saw a strong rejection for further upside. Therefore, ETH/USD is expected to see another strong push lower over the next few days, with the $1,725 major support targeted next.
