The Ethereum price action saw a substantial advance over the last two days. After consolidating below the $3,300 resistance for several weeks, ETH/USD finally set a higher low around $3,100 on the 26th of August.

This was followed by further upside over the weekend and a following local higher high. On Monday, ETH started to advance rapidly and quickly moved back to the $3,300 resistance. 

After some initial reaction, the $3,350 previous swing high was broken, with the next resistance at $3,600 reached shortly after. Ethereum`s momentum did not slow down late yesterday, with the market price eventually touching the $3,800 price mark. Since then, ETH/USD has consolidated and rejected further upside, indicating an upcoming several-day retracement.

Ethereum Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bearish today as the market struggled to make further upside after a spike to the $3,800 mark yesterday. Therefore, we expect ETH/USD to reverse later today and look to retrace some of the gains.
