 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 last Thursday that I was not particularly bearish, but the odds did seem to be with the bears, so a strong reversal at a rejection of $3,379 would be a bearish sign that lower prices were about to happen, if it set up. It did set up and was followed by a downwards move on low volatility. Unfortunately, the accurate call was interrupted by the kind of sudden, strong, out-of-the-blue reversal that Bitcoin has been prone to over recent months, with the price rising by more than $300 in only a few hours. The picture is more bullish now, and the three former resistance levels have now probably become support. The price is within a relatively wide area without any key levels, so short-term direction is very hard to predict now. I have no directional bias right now.

There is nothing of high importance due today regarding the USD.
