BTC/USD Forex Signal

Yesterday’s signals produced a profitable long trade from the bullish pin candlestick rejecting the support level at $16,000. I would take most of the profit off this trade, so it can’t lose overall, and hope for a dramatic recovery in the price to follow.

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 Bitcoin had reached a pivotal movement: $16,000 will either be a good level to buy at, or, if it breaks down, we were increasingly likely to see another sharp fall that could even go below $10,000. It is time for anyone trading or investing in Bitcoin to watch what happens to the price over the next day or so very closely. My bias will largely be determined by whether $16,000 holds. I think this has proven to be a correct approach. The level at $16,000 is clearly holding, but steeper bearish trend lines can now be drawn, and the price has been unable to establish any higher support levels. The initial indication is that the medium-term bullish trend will survive, but it still looks in great danger. If Bitcoin breaks below $16,000 we are likely to see a fast move down to the next support level near $14,000 and possible even far below that. Anyone in Bitcoin needs to watch the chart very carefully, what happens from $16,000 is going to be the key.
