Though whale activity around the king of altcoins was high, a few of the metrics hinted at a price correction. An analysis of CryptoQuant’s data revealed that ETH’s net deposits on exchanges were high compared to the 7-day average.

Higher deposits can be interpreted as higher selling pressure. Its Korea premium was also red, meaning that selling sentiment was dominant among Korean investors.

Things looked bearish in the derivatives market as its taker buy/sell ratio turned red, suggesting that futures investors were also selling ETH.

Since a few of the metrics looked bearish, AMBCrypto checked the liquidation heatmap to see the support levels. As per an analysis of Hyblock Capital’s data, ETH has strong support near the $3.3k mark.
