Ethereum price action saw a strong wave lower last week, leading to a strong lower swing low set at $1,200. ETH/USD quickly retraced below the $1,350 mark and started to decline lower again.

However, the $1,275 support prevented further downside, leading to another bounce higher over the past few days. Since then, the previous local high at $1,350 was retested, indicating a double top reversal.

Overall, we expect Dogecoin price action to continue declining over the next 24 hours. Likely the $1,300 support will soon be broken, after which we expect either another higher low to be set or further break below $1,275 support.

Ethereum price analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bearish today as we have seen double top formed and selling return over the second half of today. Therefore, we expect further selling over the next 24 hours, likely leading to test of the $1,250 support.
