Ethereum has seen a strong upsurge finally come to an end after the $1,600 mark was reached on Tuesday. After another attempt to push higher, bulls were rejected again a day later, indicating that a shift in momentum was about to follow.

Another clear higher low was set during the middle of the week at $1,480, opening the opportunity for another test of upside. A slightly higher high was indeed reached yesterday as the $1,640 was briefly reached.

However, not much further upside followed, sending Ethereum price back below previous resistance at $1,600. Since then, the resistance has been retested again with another local lower high set. This indicates that ETH/USD is about to drop even further, opening the room for a lot more downside next week.

Ethereum price analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bearish as we have seen not much further upside reached yesterday, leading to a reaction lower and a lower local high set at $1,600 over the past hours. Therefore, another bearish setup has been created, likely leading ETH/USD to push to $1,400 later in the weekend.
