Ethereum price analysis is bullish today as we expect the second retest of $2,650 to offer enough support for a reversal to follow. Therefore, ETH/USD should head higher and retrace some of the previous losses.

Ethereum price action has seen more downside reached over the past days. After a strong spike to $2,950 on 4 May 2022, ETH/USD quickly reversed and broke past previous lows.

Therefore, the overall trend remains heavily bearish. However, bears are exhausted again as the market consolidates around the $2,650 mark.

Likely Ethereum will soon look to reverse and set another lower high before more downside follows later in the month. Overall, as long as the $2,950 current high is not broken, we expect ETH/USD to reach more downside.

Ethereum price analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bullish today as we have seen a slowdown for the previous swelling pressure and a second retest of the $2,650 support. Likely, ETH/USD will reverse from there and look to test $2,775 previous support as resistance next.
