Ethereum price action has seen strong bullish momentum since the beginning of August when a strong higher high was set just below $1,600. After some consolidation, ETH/USD broke past previous resistance at $1,800 on Wednesday.

From there, bullish momentum continued as high as the $1,900 resistance, where a slight consolidation was formed again. However, retrace did not follow as another spike higher resulted in the current swing high set at $2,000.

Yesterday, Ethereum price attempted to move even higher as the $2,000 mark was briefly broken before bearish momentum quickly returned. Overnight to today, another lower local high was set, resulting in a break below the $1,900 support over the past hours, opening the way for a lot more downside.

Ethereum price analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bearish today as we have seen a pivot around the $2,000 resistance and a steady move below the $1,900 mark. Therefore, ETH/USD will likely retrace even further overnight and look to retest previous major resistance at $1,800 as support.
