Ethereum price defends key level and aims for a rebound

ETH/USD 12-hour chart
The In/Out of the Money Around Price (IOMAP) chart shows only one crucial resistance area between $2,301 and $2,336 where 35,000 addresses purchased over 8.3 million ETH. A breakout above this range should drive Ethereum price to at least its previous all-time high.

However, at the same time, the IOMAP model also indicates weaker support below. If the area between $2,160 and $2,229 fails to hold, Ethereum price would easily drop toward the psychological level at $2,000.
