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

Last Thursday I thought it was likely that a ranging situation would prevail, although the picture had become decidedly less bullish. However, the market actually became quite bearish and continued to move down within a bearish wedge pattern. Despite that, there is now a triple bottom forming at $9,374 which may provide a supportive floor. If that level breaks down, there is a long-term supportive trend line currently confluent with a round number at $9,000 which may provide alternate support. There is no support a long way below $9,000 so if it breaks down the price could fall much further. Alternatively, a break up above $9,886 could see a reasonably strong bullish movement develop quickly.BTCUSD
