Ethereum price action has traded with strong selling pressure over the past week. After a new swing high was set below $1,800, ETH/USD initially retraced to $1,550, where a strong higher low was set.

However, after a slight recovery higher to $1,650, ETH reversed again and quickly lost over 10 percent to the $1,450 mark. Recovery could not be made again, leading sellers to test even further lows overnight.

Not much further downside was reached as the $1,400 support reversed Ethereum price action. Since then, ETH/USD has consolidated and retested previous support. Likely, buying pressure will soon return as a result, and some of this week’s loss will be retraced. 

Ethereum price analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bullish today as we have slowly reached further downside over the last 24 hours. However, the $1,400 support holds strongly so far, likely resulting in a shift in momentum over the next days.
