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 have been taking a medium-term bullish bias here, as long as the price is able to remain above $5,000 which is an important psychological level.

I am still bullish as although the price has been unable to advance beyond the resistance at $5,345 for very long, support continues to hold and $5,000 continues to hold.

I would be happy to take a bullish bias if the price can trade above $5,345 for a couple of hours consecutively today. If $5,184 breaks down, the price is likely to fall at least as far as $5,000.

Today’s pivotal point will probably be $5,345.
