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 there was no long-term trend, but the longer the price stayed below $5,235 the more bearish I would be. We just had a day where the price hardly moved, just consolidated quietly in the same price area slightly below that resistance level, so I am a little more bearish today. Just like yesterday, I would take a bearish bias if there is a solid bearish rejection of the resistance at $5,235 later today.
