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

Bitcoin has been slowly recovering ever since the near 50% retracement in price which occurred last month. Bitcoin has gone through several such severe corrections in its history, and there is no compelling reason not to see the fall as a healthy development. That might not be very comforting to long-term investors who bought near $20,000 and after most such severe corrections, Bitcoin took a long time to make new highs. This suggests that we are not going to see $20,000 any time soon and that volatility is going to decrease.

Over the medium term, the price is in a wide and narrowly bullish channel, but the movement is quite consolidative, making it a little difficult to trade long. Fortunately, technical support and resistance levels tend to work well with Bitcoin, so I see the best opportunities as likely to arise at rejections of such levels. I am more bullish than bearish, so long trades are preferred. The price is currently sitting right on a support level which may extend all the way down the big round number at $15,000. There could be a buying opportunity here, but it is too early to tell. The level at $14,222 looks extremely attractive.
