Ethereum price action has traded with strong bullish momentum over the last weeks as a series of higher highs resulted in a new major swing high set at $2,000. From there, a steady retrace began as bullish momentum could not return for several days.

Eventually, the steady retrace turned into a strong spike lower, quickly breaking past the $1,800 closest support. Later yesterday, the next major support was already reached at $1,680, meaning a drop of over 10 percent.

However,m despite a slight consolidation at the newly found support, Ethereum price failed to recover. Strong selling pressure returned overnight, leading to the next support at $1,600, where a reaction higher should follow over the next 24 hours.

Ethereum price analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bullish today, as we have seen a quick spike to $1,600 next support, where the decline stopped. Therefore, we expect ETH/USD to retrace higher and look to set another lower local high.
