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 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. As long as this support at $8,436 held, it made sense to be bullish and hope for new higher highs at $9,000 and above.

This was an acceptable call as the price has risen a little over the past 24 hours after being supported at the nearest key level, which is a bullish sign.

There is no change to the technical picture until the price breaks one of the nearby support or resistance levels.

My preference would be for a long trade entry following a strong bounce at the nearby support – I would take a bullish bias if that happens, in line with the long-term bullish trend.BTCUSDRegarding the USD, there will be a release of Preliminary GDP data at 1:30pm London time.
