ETH/USD 4-hour chart: ETH ready to drop again?

On the 4-hour chart, we can see the Ethereum price action breaking past the $2,000 support, likely leading to another major downswing later in the week.

Ethereum price action has seen steady retracement over the past days as the market bounced from the $1,700 current swing low on 12 May 2022. Around 25 percent were regained, and a strong lower high set before signs of selling pressure reappeared yesterday.

Since ETH/USD failed to recover further and a lower high was set at $2,100 yesterday, we expect more downside to follow soon. Therefore, the $2,000 mark should be soon broken and a lower local low set.

From there, the Ethereum price will likely move towards the $1,700 major support and potentially set further monthly lows. However, if support can be found above it, a much more substantial reversal could soon take place.

Ethereum price analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bearish today as we have seen a slightly lower high set and the $2,000 mark getting broken over the last hours. Likely ETH/USD will break down overnight, opening the way for another major wave lower later in the week.
