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 we had a bullish consolidation threatening higher prices, the question was whether sellers or profit-takers would hold the $4,000 area as resistance. If the price could make new highs for about 3 hours, I thought that it will continue higher as the line of least resistance was certainly upwards.

This was a good call as the price did make higher closes, above the key $4,000 level, and continue upwards from there.

The picture remains bullish.
