Ethereum price action has seen a slow reversal from the previous major swing low at $1,000 last week. After several days of consolidation, ETH/USD began to push higher and broke out of $1,100 previous resistance.

Further upside followed yesterday, with only minor pauses before each push higher throughout the day. Overnight, the next resistance at $1,175 was already reached, indicating that bullish momentum is powerful right now, and the medium-term market structure could soon start to turn bullish again.

This morning, quick retrace followed, leading to a very quick 8 percent retrace, with support found at $1,075. Since further downside has not yet followed and a slight reaction higher is seen, we expect a reversal back to the upside to follow soon. From there, likely Ethereum price will set another strong higher high, which would further indicate strong bullish market sentiment.

Alternatively, if ETH/USD fails to reverse and further downside follows back to the $1,050 mark, we could see the bullish momentum end soon. In this case, we can expect a break below the $1,000 major support by the end of the week.

Ethereum price analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bullish today as we have seen a strong higher high set at $1,175 and a quick retrace earlier today. This means that both a strong higher high and higher low has been set, and bulls are preparing for another strong rally higher over the week. Likely the next target will be the $1,250 resistance.
