It’s important to note that despite Ethereum price rising higher, large investors are not taking profits just yet. The number of whales holding at least 1,000,000 ETH coins has increased since January 6. Similarly, the number of large investors holding between 100,000 and 1,000,000 coins has also been in an uptrend since December 30, 2020.

The IOMAP chart shows only one significant resistance area between $1,215 and $1,239, which gives credence to the bullish outlook as it indicates the $1,290 level shouldn’t be hard to break.

The IOMAP model also indicates that Ethereum is currently sitting on top of a robust support area between $1,142 and $1,178. Failing to hold this range of support would be a significantly bearish indicator and would invalidate the bullish outlook.
