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 a look at the daily chart showed a slightly bearish picture, so short trades from rejections of resistance levels were likely to be the best bet – I was ready to take a bearish bias if $3,876 broke down convincingly or if the price retraced to $3,936 and strongly rejected that level.

In fact, the price turned around with the support at $3,876 continuing to hold, and recent hours have seen a relatively strong upwards movement which has probably flipped the former resistance levels at $3,936 and below to become new higher support. There are initial signs that the price may be topping out near $4,000 where is there is key resistance close by. If the price can close above $4,008 for a couple of hours, that would be a bullish sign.BTCUSDThere is nothing of high importance due today concerning the USD.
