Ethereum price has seen trading in an increasingly tighter range over the past week. After a local swing high was set at $2,750 on the 9th of March, ETH/USD retraced to $2,500, setting a clear higher low.

Consolidation around this price area has followed since. Likely it will resolve to the upside as bulls demonstrated strength before. Therefore, we expect another major rally to follow as soon as more upside can be reached.

The next resistance is located at the $2,750 previous high. Once it is broken, the Ethereum price would have a clear way for a lot more upside to be reached over the rest of the month.

However, for now, the consolidation should continue. In case ETH/USD breaks lower, the overall market structure could suddenly turn very bearish once again.

Ethereum price analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bullish today as we have seen rejection for downside again over the last 24 hours. Likely ETH/USD will soon regain strength to break the $2,600 resistance and look to set further highs by the end of the weekend.
