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

I had a bearish bias last Thursday as the technical picture was dominated by a strong, long-term descending trend line, and because there was a lot of room for the price to fall further before it hit any supportive levels. I was partially correct, as the price did fall quite heavily for most of that day, before turning bullish as the Asian session began. Since then the price has moved up steadily, turning resistant areas into new support and breaking quite strongly through the resistant trend line. This has created a much more bullish technical picture, with only a single resistance level preventing the price rising as high as the $8,900 area. At the time of writing, the price is trapped narrowly between two levels. I would have a bullish bias if the price can break out convincingly above $8,593.
