Ethereum price action saw a strong lower swing high set last week after several days of retracement. Buying pressure stopped at $1,720m leading to further downside later in the week.

Selling continued for several days, leading to the $1,500 as the first stop. After some hesitance, ETH/USD tested even further downside, leading to the $1,425 support next.

From there, Ethereum price reversed, likely as sellers were exhausted again. Over the past hours, ETH/USD already broke past previous resistance, indicating that more upside is about to follow.
