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 recent new high just under $9,000 presented a much more bullish picture. and that the short-term price action remained quite bullish, as there had only been a shallow bearish retracement.

I thought there was every reason to be bullish here in line with the long-term trend. I was ready to take an immediate bullish bias if the price were to retrace to the nearest support at $8,436 and make a strong upwards bounce there.

We got this bounce a few hours ago and it remains to be seen what will happen, but the price has risen a little. As long as this support at $8,436 holds, it makes sense to be bullish and hope for new higher highs at $9,000 and above.
