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 reason not to be generally bullish just because we have had a day of consolidation. I would take a bullish bias above $8,350 or if there is a strong bullish bounce following a bearish retracement to the $7,582 support level.

There was no retracement to $7,582 but the price did briefly trade above $8,350 so this wasn’t such a good call (yet) as the price has pulled back and printed new lower resistance at $8,134 – this level is too fresh to be included within my resistance levels in the signal above though.

It makes sense to remain bullish, but a period of consolidation or a deeper retracement are becoming less unlikely scenarios. I would take a bullish bias following a retracement to and bullish bounce at the nearby support level of $7,582.BTCUSDRegarding the USD, there is nothing of high importance due today.
