  • Ethereum price analysis is bearish today.
  • ETH/USD broke past the $2,750 major resistance.
  • Overall market structure has turned bullish.

Ethereum price analysis is bearish today as we expect a retracement to set a higher low over the weekend after a clear break above the $2,750 previous highs. Therefore, the weekend should see selling pressure return, as bulls take a pause after a strong break higher.

Ethereum price action has continued to decline this week. After further series of lower lows and highs, the last push lower reached the $2,300 mark on the 24th of February.

From there, bulls quickly pushed ETH/USD back to the $2,750 resistance, which previously was tested several times. Despite rejection for further upside at first, buyers did not give up yesterday, leading to a break higher close to midnight.

Further, a new higher high was set above $2,850, potentially indicating a shift in momentum after several weeks of bearish dominance. Therefore, if the Ethereum price can set higher low during the upcoming retracement, we could see a lot more upside over the next weeks.

Ethereum price analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bearish today as we have seen rejection for further upside after a clear higher high was set. Therefore, ETH/USD should retrace and look to set a higher low to confirm the current attempt to reverse the several-week downswing.
