Ethereum price action has traded sideways for the past days below the $1,350 resistance. After previously, ETH/USD failed to break both higher and lower, the current trading range was set from $1,250 to $1,400.

Overall, this means that either a break above or below the area is needed before a clear trend direction can be set for the rest of the month. Currently, the $1,350 resistance has reversed ETH again, leading to a steady decline over the past few days.

Since Ethereum price has already moved past the $1,300 support, we expect further downside to follow soon. Likely ETH/USD will actively target the $1,250 support early next week, which, if broken, would open up the way for a lot more downside later in October.

Ethereum price analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bearish today as we have seen a substantial decline from the $1,350 resistance over the last 24 hours and the $1,300 support actively tested. Therefore, ETH/USD should drop even lower overnight and look to move towards $1,250.
