Ethereum price saw strong signs of reversal last week as a higher high at $3,400 was set on the 12th of January. The following retracement established a strong higher low at the $3,200 previous resistance, further strengthening the market structure.

However, the following rally peaked below $3,400, essentially forming a double top reversal pattern. Therefore, the current break below $3,200 previous low has sent a very bearish sign in the market.

Despite this, ETH/USD has already lost over 8 percent in a couple of days, and it’s not for a rebound. Most likely, we will see the Ethereum price retrace and set a lower high before more downside is tested later in the week.

Ethereum Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bullish today as we expec the $3,100 mark to prevent further downside after a substantial drop over the last 24 hours. Therefore, ETH/USD should move to set lower high soon.
