Ethereum price action has traded sideways over the past days after reaction from the $1,100 support peaked at $1,350. Since then ETH/USD has moved sideways above $1,200 support, slowly setting a higher low.

Breakout attempts below $1,200 support failed yesterday, leading to believe a higher low was set. However, the following reaction higher has ended at the $1,275 resistance, where rejection has been seen over the past hours.

Ethereum price is likely to continue lower as a result, with the $1,200 support likely to be broken over the next 24 hours. Once that is done, ETH/USD is should target the $1,100 support. 

Ethereum price analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bearish today as we have seen a lower local high set at $1,275 over the past hours and selling pressure returning since. Therefore, ETH/USD will likely continue even lower later today and look to retest the $1,100 major support by the end of the week.
