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

Yesterday I noted the triple bottom forming at $9,374 which may provide a supportive floor. Also, a break up above $9,886 could see a reasonably strong bullish movement develop quickly. I was a little late, but this was the way to go, as the price used that level as support to drive a powerful breakout above the bearish wedge pattern, all shown in the price chart below. This picture is now considerably more bullish, and I have a bullish bias, yet there are two resistance levels close by which may halt or reverse this advance. The higher level at $11,191 looks the stronger of the two.
