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 getting bearish here looked dangerous as we had major and probably strong support close below at $3,646. This meant that if the price could get established above $3,750 then I thought that it would be likely to move higher for some distance. This was a good call as after clearing $3,750 it did continue up before being stopped by the resistance I had placed at $3,859.

Today, if the price can trade above $3,859 for a couple of hours and show some bullish momentum there, I would take a cautiously bullish bias. If the price settled above $4,000 that would be a very bullish sign. Today the pivotal level is likely to be $3,859 but a move down from there currently looks unlikely.BTCUSDThere is nothing of high importance due today regarding the USD.
