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 there was no reason not to be bearish but watch out for the support at $4,137. This was a very good call as the price continued to fall until it touched that level, when it bounced bullishly and then began to move up. It will probably be difficult for the price to move much higher than this over the short-term, so when the price action turns more bearish, we are likely to get another push down towards $4,137. I would be very bearish if the price can trade below $4,000 for a couple of hours.BTCUSD
