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 continues to consolidate and was respecting the flipped level at $3,557 enough to identify this as new support. However, there was also a descending trend line close by which had had three taps already, so the bulls and bears seemed to be evenly balanced. I was looking for a breakout beyond those boundaries to take a bias in the direction of the breakout. This was a good call insofar as the price has remained contained so no trade. I would take the same approach today, so no change, but I would like to see any breakout making some higher volatility.BTCUSDConcerning the USD, there will be releases of Retail Sales and PPI data at 1:30pm London time.
