Ethereum price action has seen further upside tested over the past week. A new high was set at $3,200 on the 25th of March after a strong break above $3,000 previous resistance.

Therefore, the overall market structure has turned increasingly bullish. Likely soon the previous major swing high resistance at $3,200 will be broken, further strengthening the overall trend.

However, first, the Ethereum price action needs to retrace again. Likely the swift decline to the $3,080 mark seen on Friday is not enough, and another test for downside is needed next week.

Considering the previous sharp advance, a retest of $3,000 resistance as support would mean a healthy pullback overall. From there, bulls will likely regain their strengths and will be ready to break the $3,200 next major price milestone.

Ethereum price analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bearish today as we have seen a steady move higher result in a local lower high set at $3,160. Therefore, unless bulls can suddenly push the market higher, we expect ETH/USD to drop below $3,080 over the next 24 hours.
