Ethereum price action saw a strong upswing last week, resulting in a strong higher high set at $1,760. ETH/USD saw several days of consolidation later in the week as selling pressure slowly returned early this week.

Decline followed as low as the $1,560 mark, where the current local low is located. No further downside followed yesterday, leading DOGE to return higher during the second half of the day.

After the first slight spike higher, the Ethereum price found resistance at $1,680, with another retest seen during the past hours. Therefore, ETH/USD is ready to drop even lower over the next few days as further retracement still needs to be made.   

Ethereum price analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bearish today as we have seen a slight reaction higher back to $1,680 previous resistance. From there, we expect ETH/USD to drop lower again and move its way towards the next support at $1,500.
