Ethereum price action has rallied with strong momentum over the past week. From the last swing low at $1,500, ETH/USD has managed to gain over 20 percent and almost reach the $1,800 next major resistance.
However, since the last push higher failed to set substantial further upside, we expect bulls to finally be exhausted and selling pressure to return early next week. The first obvious sign for the upcoming retrace would be a clean move past the $1,720 previous consolidation area.
From there, Ethereum price will likely look to retrace as low as the $1,6500 mark as it previously provided very strong resistance. Once that is done, ETH/USD should look to continue even higher later in September.
Ethereum price analysis: Conclusion
Ethereum price analysis is bearish today as we have seen a very strong rally over the week, with an almost 20 percent gain from the $1,500 previous swing low. Since the overnight move higher could only reach slightly higher highs, we expect ETH/USD to be exhausted and begin retracing over the next week finally.
