Ethereum price aiming for a rebound to $700

Perhaps, even more importantly, is the number of Ethereum coins deposited inside the Eth2 deposit contract.

It also seems that the social dominance of Ethereum has significantly dropped over the past few weeks, especially with Bitcoin rallying above $24,000 and Ripple being sued by the SEC. This is, in fact, a positive metric as it represents a good opportunity for new investors to jump in.

ETH IOMAP chart

Unfortunately, according to the In/Out of the Money Around Price (IOMAP) chart, there is steep resistance ahead, specifically between $628 and $645. A breakout above this point can quickly push Ethereum price towards $700.

However, failure to break this critical resistance area will most likely lead the digital asset into another correction. The IOMAP shows very little support on the way down. Bears could target a low of $500.
