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 is now generally more bullish, with no resistance to halt a further advance until $4,374. However, the price action of recent hours has suggested a topping out at about $4,000. It looked likely that the day’s pivotal level would be $3,936 – a strong bounce here and I would take a bullish bias.

This was a very good call as the low of the day was just slightly above that support. I say the picture now looks more bullish still, with the short-term price action telegraphing that higher prices are likely over the course of today.

Regarding the USD, there is nothing of high importance due today.
