Ethereum price has seen a strong rally over the past days as bulls pushed the market close to the previous all-time high. The move higher was a result of a strong spike lower last Friday, resulting in a lower low set at $3,950.

Therefore, ETH/USD has seen strong volatility both ways, indicating indecision in the market on where to move next. However, considering that a strong higher high above $4,550 was set Yesterday, we expect more upside over the next weeks.

First, the Ethereum price has to retrace some of the gains. Overnight, we saw the first push lower find support at $4,500. ETH/USD consolidated from there, as bears likely prepare to see further retracement realized. Therefore, we expect more downside to follow over the next days.

Ethereum Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bearish today as we expect more downside to follow after a quick rejection of upside. ETH/USD is likely headed towards further retracement over the next 24 hours, with the closest support around $4,350-$4,400.
