Ethereum price action has seen sustained selling over the second half of August. From the last major swing high, ETH/USD has already lost around 30 percent to the current low of around $1,450.

From there, recovery followed as the second retracement began. This time, resistance was found at $1,600 and later retested with failure to move higher. Likely this means that ETH buyers are exhausted, and another pivot lower is about to be seen.

The first obstacle for Ethereum price action would be the $1,500 local support. Once it is broken, we expect ETH/USD to drop all the way past the $1,400 next major price mark.

Ethereum price analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bearish today as we have seen consolidation after a clear lower high set at $1,600 at the beginning of the week. Therefore, we expect ETH/USD to drop even further over the next few days and look to move past the $1,420 previous swing low.
