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 the price may consolidate now, I would wait until the price got established above $5,645 before taking any new long trades, unless there was a pullback and a strong bullish bounce at $5,355. This was a good call as the price has fallen and is now trading within a wide consolidation after failing to rise above $5,645 but also printing new higher stairstep support at $5,441. I think the price is likely to consolidate between these two levels and may have already bottomed at this new support a couple of hours ago.

A break above $5,645 would be a very bullish sign if it happened today.
