Ethereum price action has seen a strong swing high set at $2,000 earlier this week. However, further upside did not follow as selling pressure slowly retraced the market lower.

After the last strong rejection lower on Wednesday, ETH/USD started to decline rapidly, quickly losing another 15 percent to the $1,600 support. Reversal did not follow again, as another lower spike took ETH to $1,525 late yesterday.

Since then, the Ethereum price has traded higher as another lower local high looks to be set. Therefore, until then, we expect further upside for ETH/USD over the rest of the weekend. Additionally, until a clear push higher is set, bearish momentum should continue dominating early next week.

Ethereum price analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bullish as we have seen further failure to recover yesterday and another spike lower by the end of the day. However, since then, ETH/USD has started to retrace, indicating that another lower local high needs to be set first.
