Ethereum price action has seen a strong reversal this week. After previously making its way higher, ETH/USD peaked at $4,160 on the 23rd of December. 

Consolidation followed last weekend, with slightly lower highs set, indicating an upcoming reversal. ETH did indeed see a strong break lower from Monday, resulting in a loss of over 12 percent to the current low at $3,600, which was found on Wednesday.

Reaction higher followed yesterday, with the $3,775 mark offering resistance under which to form a consolidation. After more sideways action overnight, the Ethereum price quickly spiked higher this morning, with selling pressure returning shortly after.

Therefore, we expect ETH/USD to move for another downswing over the next 24 hours. Likely, bears will retest the previous major swing low at $3,600 over the weekend.

Ethereum Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bearish today as we expect a reversal to follow after a brief test of more upside this morning. Likely ETH/USD is headed for another test of downside over the next 24 hours.
