Ethereum price action has traded with strong bullish momentum over the past days. From the last swing low above $1,000, ETH/USD has clearly regained strong bullish momentum, leading to a strong higher high set over the weekend.

From there, consolidation around $1,350 followed for almost 24 hours before another spike higher followed. This time, the $1,500 mark was reached, indicating another strong higher local high.

However, since then, we have seen slight rejection for further upside. Likely this will lead Ethereum price even lower as bears look to set another local higher low.

Ethereum price analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bearish today as we have seen a strong rally towards the $1,500 mark since the start of the day, where resistance was found at $1,500. Therefore, we assume that bullish momentum is exhausted and a reversal is about to follow over the next days.
