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 the ongoing bullish move was weak and there was selling every time the price approached $3,900. However, we did have new higher support at $3,816 which looked relatively likely to be today’s pivotal level. If we got a bullish bounce there later, I was ready to take a bullish bias. This was a good call as it reflected what happened, but the bullish bounce at $3,816 unfortunately did not happen until it was too late, on Friday.

The picture remains weakly bullish as long as $3,816 continues to hold. I would take a weak bullish bias if there were a strong bullish bounce at that level following a bearish retracement.
