Ethereum price action saw strong bullish momentum during the first days of October. From the previous major swing low of $2,750 to the current swing high of $3,650, ETH/USD gained more than 30 percent.
What followed was a slow reversal over the past week. Ethereum slowly set lower highs and lows, with the $3,400 mark tested on Monday. Therefore, ETH/USD currently trades in an increasingly tighter range, indicating a bearish breakout later this week.
Once Ethereum price breaks $3,400, we expect a lot more downside to follow this week as the next support is located at the $3,150 previous major resistance. Around this support, we could see ETH/USD establish a higher major swing low and reverse to the upside again.

Ethereum price analysis is bearish today as bears continued to set increasingly lower highs over the last 24 hours, while the $3,400 support still holds. Therefore, we expect ETH/USD to break lower later today eventually and head towards the $3,150 next major support level later this week.
