Ethereum price action has seen a retrace over the past days after a new swing high was set at $1,760. From there, a new low was set at $1,560 and a clear higher low set.

A slight reaction higher followed later this week, setting a lower local high at $1,680. Consolidation continued later in the week, leading to a drop back to $1,600 as bears attempted to continue the several day retracement.

However, Ethereum price reversed before the $1,600 support could be broken, leading to a quick spike higher. ETH/USD quickly reached $1,720, before more downside began, indicating that selling should continue over the weekend.

Ethereum price analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bearish today as we have seen a quick spike higher above $1,680 resistance, with an immediate reaction lower shortly after. Therefore, we expect ETH/USD to begin retracing further over the weekend, likely with a break below $1,600 support.
