Ethereum price action has traded with strong bullish momentum earlier this month as a new major swing high was set above $2,000. However, further upside did not follow, indicating that this week we will see a steady retrace lower.

At first, ETH/USD retraced to $1,900, where consolidation was formed earlier this week. Higher low could not be set as recovery did not follow, as upside was rejected earlier today. 

Eventually, the Ethereum price reacted even lower as selling pressure continued throughout the day. However, the next support at $1,800 could not be reached, likely meaning that further tests of the downside will follow overnight.

Ethereum price analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bearish today as we have seen rejection for upside and a swift move toward the $1,800 next support. Therefore, ETH/USD should see further downside tested before another strong wave higher is seen later in the week.
