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 as the price was almost back within its comfort zone, it was likely do little now. The support at $4,732 seemed to be holding, but it was likely that the level at $3,830 had become new resistance, so the price looked like it would not go anywhere. I was partially right as the movement is really just reverting back to its average, even though the resistance at $3,830 was broken and invalidated. I have adjusted the resistance upwards to its true level which seems to be $3,859.

Unfortunately, it still looks impossible to forecast any direction here, so I think this is still best avoided by traders today.BTCUSDRegarding the USD, there will be a release of CB Consumer Confidence data at 3pm London time as well as testimony before the Senate from the Chair of the Federal Reserve.
