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 picture remained weakly bullish as long as $3,816 continued to hold. I was ready take a weak bullish bias if there were a strong bullish bounce at that level following a bearish retracement. This was a good call but a narrow miss: the bullish turn took place slightly below $3,816.

Bulls and bears now seem to be evenly balanced despite the move up from $3,800, with the price currently just below two resistance levels. I ignore $3,858 for the time being but $3,875 could be more interesting.

The best approach will probably be to take a bullish bias a couple of hours after $3,876 is cleared or a bearish bias after a breakdown below $3,800 for a couple of hours. I think the downside has more potential.
