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 I would take a bullish bias today if the price could advance beyond the trend line and stay there for two hours. The price was never able to reach the trend line, so that scenario did not occur.

The picture remains bullish, as the nearest support level has held, and seems to be acting as support after the recent bearish retracement. The most likely outcome is that the level holds, and the price continues to advance from there, so I will take a bullish bias if we now get a strongly bullish bounce from this level without the level breaking down.BTCUSD

Regarding the USD, there will be a release of the FOMC Statement and Federal Funds Rate at 7pm London time.
