Ethereum price action has seen several days of bullish momentum from the $1,500 support. After an initial rally to $1,650, ETH/USD began consolidating on Friday, indicating a lower high will be set.
However, further upside quickly followed during the weekend, leading to the next resistance at $1,720. Another consolidation failed to reverse the market, with a quick spike setting the current high at $1,790.
Since then, Ethereum price has formed steady reversal consolidation and started to retest previous lows. Therefore, we expect the current retest of upside to create a base from which to break past the $1,720 previous low.

Ethereum price analysis is bearish today as we have seen steady reversal below $1,800 and a quick drop to $1,720 previous support. From there, ETH/USD has made a slight reaction lower, indicating that a lower local high will be set and selling pressure will return soon.
