ETH/USD opened at $3,917 today after pushing from the $3,500 to $4,000 major price target yesterday. Since then, the market has started to trade sideways, indicating an upcoming retracement after a very strong rally. Therefore, we expect Ethereum to retrace towards $3,600 support over the next few days.

The overall market continues moving in a very strong bullish momentum after a strong support base was established around $2,100 in the middle of April. Since then, Ethereum price has rallied by more than 90 percent and has reached the next round number milestone of $4,000.

Earlier this week, we saw ETH/USD reach the $3,500 mark, after which consolidation was seen with a retracement to the $3,200 mark. From there, Ethereum moved slightly higher towards the $3,600 resistance, where another several-day consolidation area was formed with a $3,400 mark as support. Overall this indicated a slowdown for the several-week bullish momentum.

However, Ethereum spiked above the $3,600 mark on the 8th of May, with the $4,000 mark reached shortly after. Overnight, Ethereum attempted to break the $4,000 mark unsuccessfully, with a small retracement seen shortly after. This failure to break the $4,000 price mark could lead towards a retracement over the next few days as the Ethereum price action structure seeks to establish a base from which to move higher over the next week. 

Ethereum Price Prediction: Conclusion 

Ethereum price prediction is bearish as the market price has spiked higher over the last 24 hours and currently shows signs of exhaustion. Therefore, we expect ETH/USD to retrace over the next 24 hours, with the first major support target located at the $3,600 mark.
