Ethereum price has seen bearish momentum return over the past week. After a strong recovery from the previous massive spike to $3,600, ETH/USD peaked below $4,500 on the 9th of December.

From there, bears took over again, pushing the market towards the previous low around $3,900. Further downside was rejected yesterday, leading to a slow upside reaction over the last 24 hours.

Resistance was found at $4,100 earlier today, with the market consolidating since. Likely the Ethereum price action currently prepares for another push lower as bears are not done yet.

Ethereum Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bearish today as we saw the $4,100 mark prevent more upside after a slow rally higher yesterday. Therefore, ETH/USD is not yet ready to move any higher and another push lower should be seen early next week.
