Ethereum price action has seen a slow reversal at the end of last week as new highs were rapidly rejected. After the last rejection on Monday, ETH/USD rapidly declined, indicating that strong retracement can be expected later in the week.

From there, a quick drop lower reached past $1,400 next support, eventually setting a new low at $1,360. Quick reaction higher followed quickly, leading to another retest of upside.

Bullish pressure continued until late yesterday when a slightly higher high was briefly set. However, since then, ETH/USD has started consolidating and has shown signs of rejection for further upside. Therefore, we expect Ethereum price action to decline quickly, likely leading back to the $1,500 support.

Ethereum price analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bearish today as we have seen a higher high set after a strong spike higher. However, ETH/USD has since consolidated, indicating that reversal will follow over the rest of the week.
