Ethereum price analysis: ETH set to move lower again after sharply rejecting $1,600 resistance
As mentioned in our previous Ethereum price analysis, Ethereum has a strong decline over the past weeks. From the all-time high of $2,040 to the low of $1,300, Ethereum has lost around 36 percent. Therefore the market has probably exhausted its bearish momentum.
Over the past day, we saw a consolidation around the $1,550 – $1,575 price area after further upside was rejected. After printing a bearish 4-hour, pin-bar ETH eventually started moving lower again and right now trades at the $1,500 support. This Ethereum price action should lead towards more downside over the next hour as the market looks to test the previous swing low, around $1,300 again.

Looking at the 4-hour chart for ETH/USD, we see a clear reversal over the last hours after $1,600 resistance was tested and a bearish pin-bar was formed. Ethereum currently tests $1,500 support, and if it is broken, we should see ETH moving towards the next support at $1,400.
ETH/USD 4-hour chart by TradingView
Overall, Ethereum price is still in a downtrend. After peaking at $2,040 on the 20th of February, the market has declined by 36 percent and set a new several weeks low at $1,300.
Earlier last week, the $1,400 support was tested several times and did invite a lot of bulls into the market. However, after several days of consolidation around the $1,400 – $1500 area, ETH dropped lower again and set the current low.
This caused a massive reaction at the end of last week, resulting in a very bullish push higher on Monday. Ethereum moved around 22 percent in less than 24 hours and reached the $1,600 price mark that currently holds the market from moving higher as it is strong resistance.
After testing the $1,600 resistance with a rejection, ETH set a 4-hour bearish pin-bar that invited sellers into the market. From there on, ETH dropped lower again and currently sits at $1,500. If the $1,500 support is broken, the analyst expects further downside towards the next support around $1,400. Alternatively, we could see another retest of the $1,600 resistance.
Ethereum Price Analysis: Conclusion
Ethereum price prediction is bearish as the market has clearly rejected the $1,600 resistance. The further downside would allow Ethereum to retest the previous low or potentially reverse around the $1,400 support, which would also mean that a new higher low is made.
Therefore, more downside is expected for the meantime, and a short position could be made. However, the best option would be to wait for further Ethereum price action in the form of a higher swing low.
