ETH/USD opened at $2,241 after a strong move to the downside resulted in a brief retest of $2,000 support. From there, the market then pushed higher, closing the day with a substantial wick. Overnight a lot of the loss was retraced as the market aimed to retest the $2,300 previous support as a resistance.

Overall, Ethereum has performed great this month as a new all-time high was set at $2,550 after a 64 percent rally from the $1,550 low. Key support/resistance levels around $1,940, $2,040, $2,120, and $2,200 were established on its way up. 

After reaching the new all-time high on the 15th of April, the Ethereum price action momentum shifted, and a failure to move higher was seen the following day. From there, Ethereum started to slowly trade lower until previous support at $2,300 was broken. The breakout below the $2,300 mark served as a catalyst for a much stronger push lower over the following hours until support at the $2,000 was found as predicted in our previous Ethereum price prediction.

After a quick spike towards the $2,000 support level early yesterday, the market quickly rejected further downside and was pushed to the $2,200 mark. From there, another move lower was seen yesterday, resulting in a double bottom formation that indicates a new major low has been established.

Overnight, we saw ETH/USD push higher again until the market slowly reversed just below the $2,300 mark. Over the past hours, ETH has moved lower again and currently trades just above $2,200 support. If it is broken, we should see further downside later today as the market price action looks to establish a higher low, from which to move higher later this week. 

Ethereum Price Prediction: Conclusion 

Ethereum price prediction is bearish as the market momentum has shifted overnight after failing to reach the next resistance at $2,300. Therefore, we expect ETH/USD to move lower over the next hours to establish a higher low, from which to attempt to move higher later this week.
