The best method to identify a classic “price action reversal” is for an hourly candle to close, such as a pin bar, a doji, an outside or even just an engulfing candle with a higher close. You can exploit these levels or zones by watching the price action that occurs at the given levels.

BTC/USD Analysis

Yesterday I wrote that the action was still evenly balanced between bulls and bears, but I thought that the bulls would prevail over the short term, so I preferred long trades off bullish bounces at either of the two supportive trend lines below. My bullish bias was correct, as the price rose, initially rejected the resistant upper triangle trend line (as shown in the price chart below), but then quickly recovered to break out and advance strongly. There is good bullish momentum here, so I maintain my bullish bias, seeing the price as likely to continue to rise. However, the psychological level of $10,000 is not far away and could prompt some profit-taking if reached, although the last time this price was hit there was almost no reaction. Despite my bullish bias, I see a short trade at $10,370 or even the next level as possible later.
