Ethereum price action has traded with strong bullish momentum over the past few days as a new swing high was reached around $1,800. ETH/USD moved into consolidation and swiftly broke past the $1,760 support.

From there, ETH began to decline rapidly earlier today, leading back towards the previous local low at $1,680. Currently, bears are trying to break even lower, likely resulting in further selling pressure until the end of the day.

Overall, we expect Ethereum price action to set another local higher low soon and begin setting a base for the next push higher, likely above the $1,800 resistance as the overall, several-week momentum is still bullish.

Ethereum price analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bearish today as we have seen a substantial decline from previous resistance as the $1,800 mark served as resistance. Therefore, we expect further retrace and another higher low to be set over the next few days.
