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

I wrote yesterday that the price was looking most likely to continue downwards to an area below $10,000, so I had a bearish bias. The price did move down, invalidating the first support level but leaving intact the level at $9,374. The price is rising at the time of writing, testing the resistance at $10,131 which is showing initial signs of holding. I have only a slight bearish bias as the buying is quite bouncy near the support level at $9,375, but it would not be a surprise if the resistance at $10,131 holds.BTCUSD
