ETH/USD 4-hour chart – retraces to $2,500
On the 4-hour chart, we can see the Ethereum price retracing to $2,500 yesterday and currently moving sideways.
The overall market trades in a bearish price action structure since a new all-time high was set around $4,400 on the 12th of May. From there, a drop of over 50 percent was seen over the following weeks until support was found at $1,900.
Earlier this week, ETH/USD spiked lower again to the $1,725 support. Therefore, a slightly lower low was set, indicating that bears are losing momentum. Later in the week, the Ethereum price moved towards the $3,000 resistance, signaling that bulls are ready to set a new higher high next week. Once it is done, the Ethereum price should start rapidly building momentum to reach the previous all-time high of $4,400.
Currently, we can see that ETH/USD consolidates around the $2,500 mark, indicating that a base from which to move higher is built. However, if the further downside is seen later today, ETH/USD might still set a higher swing low at the $2,200 support.
