Ethereum price action has seen a strong upswing over the course of this week. From the last swing low at $1,360, ETH/USD gained over 30 percent and set a clear higher high as it peaked just below $1,800.

Since then, a slight retrace has created a consolidation area of around $1,700. As the trading range gets increasingly narrow, we can assume that a push lower will soon follow as bulls are finally exhausted.

Likely, Ethereum price will look to retest previous major resistance as support first, which would mean only a slight retracement if reached. However, most likely, further downside will follow to the next support at $1,500 later next week.

Ethereum price analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bearish today as we have seen failure to move higher over the past 24 hours and consolidation in an increasingly tighter range. Therefore, we expect ETH/USD to soon drop below $1,700 and retrace towards the $1,600 next support.
