Ethereum price action has continued to decline over the past weeks as another strong push lower took the market from $2,400 to $1,700 on Thursday. Therefore, the current several-week decline totals a loss of over 50 percent from the last major swing high at $3,580.

However, after the $1,700 mark was reached, ETH/USD did see a strong reaction higher. Likely, bulls are not yet done and even further upside will be tested after the current consolidation ends.

A key area where the next resistance could be found is located at the $2,200 previous support. From there, ETH will likely pivot lower again and continue moving towards the current swing low at $1,700.

Ethereum price analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bullish as we expect further retracement after failure to reach more downside yesterday. Likely ETH/USD will move to the $2,200 next major resistance and look to pivot from there early next week.
