Ethereum price action has traded with strong bullish momentum over the past week. After the first push higher back to $1,800 previous high, ETH/USD swiftly set a substantial higher local low at $1,680, indicating that more upside will follow.

From there, ETH quickly made another push higher, breaking past previous major resistance at $1,800 in a clear way. Further upside followed to the $1,900 next major resistance, with the $1,950 mark briefly tested.

However, since then, Ethereum price has moved into consolidation as bulls are finally exhausted. Over the past hours, we have seen selling pressure slowly taking over, likely resulting in a retrace to $1,800 previous resistance, which will be retested as support.

Ethereum price analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bearish today as we have consolidated around $1,900 resistance over the past day after a strong spike higher earlier this week. Therefore, ETH/USD is exhausted, and we can expect another retrace that sets another higher low over the weekend.
