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 wrote that I would remain bullish, provided the price remains above $10,481, but I noted there is now a descending trend line which can connect the two swing highs which matches a lower trend line to form a symmetrical bearish channel. The price did not remain above $10,481 so I have no directional bias now. That support level has been invalidated so it seems as if the price is most probably going to consolidate between minor support at about $10,200 and an area of resistance beginning at about $11,000. I have no directional bias and I thin both bulls and bears are quite strong and will just fight it out within this area.
