Today’s BTC/USD Signals

Risk 0.75% per trade.

Trades may only be taken before 5pm Tokyo time, over the next 24-hour period.

Long Trades

  • Go long after a bullish price action reversal on the H1 time frame following the next touch of $11,105 or $10,785.

  • Place the stop loss 1 pip below the local swing low.

  • Move the stop loss to break even once the trade is $200 in profit by price.

  • Remove 50% of the position as profit when the trade is $200 in profit by price and leave the remainder of the position to run.

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 took no directional bias, anticipating that the price would consolidate between minor support at about $10,200 and an area of resistance beginning at about $11,000. In fact, the outcome was definitively bullish, with the price continuing to rise in quite smooth waves, printing higher highs and higher lows, as well as new higher support levels. There is now no obvious resistance below $13,000 so there is every reason to be bullish and expect the price to rise higher in the direction of least resistance. I have a bullish bias on Bitcoin and see a bullish bounce at the support level of $11,105 as a great potential buying opportunity.BTCUSD

Regarding the USD, there will be a release of ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI data at 3pm London time.
