Ethereum price action has traded with strong bullish momentum during the middle of October. After several waves higher, a new swing high was set at $1,650. However, substantial retrace is yet to follow.

Over the last weekend, ETH steadily retraced, setting a local higher low around $1,556. From there, an attempt to move higher failed, resulting in further lower local high.

Selling continued late yesterday, again without strong momentum. Since then, Ethereum price has tested the $1,600 resistance and formed consolidation. Likely ETH/USD will soon break down again, with the target to set another slightly lower local low as the overall momentum is still weak.

Ethereum price analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bearish today as we have seen retest of previous highs result in a clear lower local high set over the past hours. Additionally, ETH/USD has already reacted lower, likely as selling will soon follow.
