Ethereum price action has seen a steady decline over the past weeks ever since the market failed to reach its previous all-time high at the beginning of the month. When a massive decline formed a new swing low at $3,600 a couple of days later, the market saw huge volatility slowly decrease.

During the middle of December, ETH/USD slowly retraced back to the $3,650 mark after a strong lower high was set at $4,500. From there, higher lows were finally found, while the market still set lower highs, indicating an increasingly tighter range consolidation.

After another higher low was set yesterday, the Ethereum price finally had the right setup to break higher. Earlier today, ETH/USD reached a higher high at $4,060 and clearly broke above the several-week descending trendline.

Ethereum Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bearish today as we expect a retracement to follow after a higher high was set earlier. Likely ETH/USD will move towards the $3,900 mark to set a higher low.
