Ethereum price action has traded with a strong selling pressure over most of last week. A new swing low was eventually found at $1,550, with a reaction higher following to $1,650, where local resistance was retested.

Since then, a double bottom reversal was formed as ETH attempted to break even lower, however, it found support at $1,550 again. Since then, steady move back to the $1,650 resistance followed as a reversal attempt continued.

The next sign of reversal was a brief break above the $1,650 mark. Since a slightly higher local high was set, we can assume the current retest of the downside will provide a strong base from which to rally higher later in the week.

Ethereum price analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bullish today as we have seen further signs of reversal from the strong push lower seen last week. Therefore, ETH/USD is ready to continue higher and look to push towards the next major resistance at $1,800.
