Ethereum price slowed its decline over the past days after a more than 30 percent drop last week. Initial support was found at $2,300, with reaction higher, setting the current high at $2,550.

Early yesterday, ETH/USD made another spike lower, bottoming out and setting slightly lower low at $2,200. Since then, bulls have pushed ETH to $2,450, where consolidation has been formed since.

Therefore, we expect the Ethereum price action to pivot again to the downside. Likely by the end of the day, we will see ETH/USD test the current low at $2,200. 

Ethereum Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bearish today as another drop should follow the current consolidation below $2,450. If another lower low is set, we expect more downside to follow this week. Alternatively, ETH/USD could finally begin to reverse.
