Ethereum price has seen steady price development over the last week as the market traded around the $2,000 mark. After failing to reach further upside on Tuesday, ETH/USD set a clear lower local low, indicating that the market has shifted back to bearish momentum.

From there, the $1,900 support was set as the new local low before the upside was retested late yesterday. A new local high was reached at around $2,050 before selling pressure resumed over the second half of today.

This Ethereum price action development indicates that we can expect more downside over the next 24 hours and the weekend as a whole. Likely, bears will actively try to reach the $1,700 previous swing low before the decision is made if the several-week downtrend continues.

Ethereum price analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bearish today as we have seen a steady retrace stop at the $2,050 mark, indicating that another clear lower local high has been set. Therefore, ETH/USD is ready to resume its decline over the weekend and reach the $1,700 major support.
