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

The signs are worsening for Bitcoin, with a new lower resistance level, a dominant bearish trend line, and a feel that the key support around the $4000.00 area is in danger. There is also a new steeper bearish trend line that can be convincingly placed within the chart below. If the price breaks down below the $4000.00 area, then we are in a Bitcoin bear market with a fall of more than 20% off the all-time high. Alternatively, if it holds, it could be a great buying opportunity.

I would not yet say there is a “bursting bubble”, but there could be a deep and sharp drop if the $4000 area does not hold.BTCUSD
