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 wrote yesterday that as the price was coming up from new 1-year lows just a couple of days ago, so don’t expect much in the way of a rise, but the short-term action suggested the price was quite likely to rise a little more as long as it holds above the new support level at $3,870. This was an accurate call and the price has not only risen, it has created new higher stairstep support at $4,077. The action now looks quite bullish, but the price will need to trade above the key resistance at $4,374. If it does so for a couple of hours, this will be a bullish sign, as the price has quite a long way it can rise without meeting any resistance, so I would take a bullish bias at that point.

Regarding the USD, there will be a release of the FOMC Meeting Minutes at 7pm London time.
