Ethereum price action has seen a strong new swing high set earlier this week as a new high was reached at $1,640. After further tests of upside, only a slightly higher high could be set on Friday, moving ETH/USD into another push lower.

The following retrace also set a slightly higher local low, indicating that the market is still in a consolidation phase. The current test of upside should soon set a lower local high to confirm this, bringing, Ethereum to the downside next week.

The first obvious target is the $1,400 support. Once that is broken, we expect Ethereum price to decline very rapidly. Alternatively, if current consolidation support is not broken, we could see further tests of upside early next week.

Ethereum price analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bearish today as we have seen consolidation around $1,600 continue over the last 24 hours with a lack of momentum to push any higher. Therefore, ETH/USD has established a strong reversal area, which should be used as a base from which to start pushing lower next week.
