Ethereum price has failed to retrace further over the past week after the last local high was set at $2,150. From there, ETH/USD set a lower low at $1,900, indicating more downside should follow later in the week.

However, after another lower high was set at $2,050 yesterday, ETH failed to break even lower. Consolidation has followed since around $1,950, indicating that a push higher could soon follow.

If Ethereum price can recover above $2,000, we expect another rally to follow quickly. Once a higher local high is set, ETH/USD could move to the $2,200 major resistance yet to be reached.

Alternatively, ETH will consolidate further and break down even further, gaining momentum to return to the $1,700 major support.

Ethereum price analysis: Conclusion 

Ethereum price analysis is bullish today as we have seen failure to break past $1,900 support and a slightly higher local low set overnight. Therefore, ETh/USD is ready to regain bullish momentum in an attempt to break past the $2,050 local high.
