Ethereum price action has rapidly advanced over the last week following the strong rally that began in the middle of March. Further higher high was set just below $3,500 on the 29th of March after previous major swing high resistance levels were broken.

Another quick retracement set a higher low at $3,200, indicating further upside will follow shortly. Quick push did indeed quickly follow, leading towards $3,500 resistance once again.

Today, an attempt to break higher was seen early, with slight rejection following shortly. Right now, ETH tests upside again, with another rejection seen, indicating exhaustion for bulls, which should lead to another retracement by the end of the week.

Ethereum price analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bearish today as we expect the $3,500 mark to offer enough resistance over the following hours. Therefore, ETH/USD is expected to move for another retracement that sets a higher low, opening the opportunity for further upside to be tested next week.
