The overall market trades with a bearish momentum over the past weeks after ETH/USD set a clear swing high around $2,400. This was a result of a several-week rally from the $1,725 previous low that was reached at the end of June 22nd and retested on June 26th.

However, the further upside was not seen and Ethereum price saw a quick decline to $2,100-$2,200 area first and another push lower to $1,900 over the past days. This price action development resulted in a brief spike higher as the market wanted to retest the $2,000 mark as a resistance.

Once ETH/USD reached the $2,000 mark, any further upside was quickly rejected and bears started pushing the market lower again. This has resulted in another local lower low set over the last hours. Therefore, we expect the Ethereum price to drop further later today and reach the $1,725 mark next.

Ethereum Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bearish for the next 24 hours as bears currently push the market below the previous low of around $1,865. Therefore, we can expect further downside over the weekend, with the $1,725 mark targeted next.
