Ethereum price action has traded without a clear direction over the past weeks as recovery above the $1,400 previous high failed last Tuesday. ETH/USD immediately returned to previous lows, indicating that further sideways action would follow.

From there, ETH retraced to $1,350, where another short-term consolidation followed and set a local lower high. However, since no further upside followed, selling pressure returned yesterday, slowly leading back below $1,300 support.

Ethereum price could not sustain enough pressure towards the $1,250 overnight, leading back above the $1,300 mark today, where some resistance has already been found. Likely ETH/USD will look to move even lower over the next days, to finally break the $1,250 support. 

Ethereum price analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bearish today as we have seen a reaction higher and a retest of $1,300 after a substantial drop over the weekend. Therefore, we expect ETH/USD to start declining once more soon and drop towards the $1,250 support as it is the next major support.
