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 last Thursday the due to the selling earlier above $8,000 the picture looked a little more bearish and less consolidative. I would still be ready to take a long trade from lower support at $7,202. I would take a very weak bearish bias if the price can close below $7,583 for a couple of hours consecutively later.

This wasn’t a great call, but it was enough to keep out of trouble as ever since I wrote that, the price has been rising and continued to rise to a new 1-year high.

Bitcoin has almost doubled in value in recent weeks and this new high just under $9,000 presents a much more bullish picture. There is a strong long-term bullish trend so traders should consider getting interested in Bitcoin again.

I would take a bullish bias today if there were a strong bounce at the support level of $8,436.BTCUSDThere is nothing important due today concerning the USD. It is a public holiday today in the U.S.A.
