ETH/USD 4-hour chart: ETH ready to continue higher soon?

The 4-hour chart shows a mild retrace over the past hours targeting previous resistance turned support at $1,175. Once ETH/USD tests it, we expect a higher local low to be set and further upside to follow from there.

Ethereum price action has seen a steady retrace end at the end of June, with a new swing low set at the $1,000 mark. After some consolidation, ETH/USD started to push higher and set the initial higher local high at $1,175.

From there, a quick retrace and another push higher followed on Wednesday, leading to the $1,250 resistance late yesterday. Therefore, the previous swing high is currently tested, with failure to break higher just yet.

Most likely, the current quick reaction lower will soon serve as the basis for another attempt to push higher. Previous resistance at $1,175 should serve as a support and reversal point over the next 24 hours. 

In case the Ethereum price holds it, we expect another push higher to follow over the weekend. When the $1,250 resistance is broken, ETH/USD will have room for a lot more upside towards the $1,450 resistance.

Ethereum price analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bullish as we have seen substantial retracement already set, likely leading to a reversal back to the upside later today. From there, ETH/USD should continue to make attempts to break the previous swing high and continue towards the next major resistance at $1,450 later in July.
