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 the new lower resistance level at $3,580 was likely to be today’s pivotal level and it would make sense to be bearish if the price kept rejecting it from below. This wasn’t a great call as ultimately the price movement said this level meant nothing.

The price continues to consolidate and is respecting the flipped level at $3,557 enough to identify this as new support. However, there is a descending trend line close by which has had three taps already, so the bulls and bears seem to be evenly balanced. The best I can say is that I would be weakly bullish above the trend line at about $3,640 and weakly bearish below the support at $3,557.
