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 despite the bullish recovery, the lower high at about $8,800 and the new lower resistance at $8,610 were bearish signs. I thought that bulls should remain encouraged but should be cautious due to this deep pull back. Overall, I thought that the odds would still tend to favour the bulls.

In fact, the bears have won out, pushing the price down quite far, although the support level at $7,830 seems to be holding. We have a major bearish lower high at $8,800 and this deep retracement makes the picture much less bullish overall, although the price is certainly in a long-term bullish trend still by any measure. As such, a long from this supportive area at $7,830 may be interesting. It is likely to be today’s pivotal level and if the price can get established below it, I think that would be a bearish sign and suggest we are not going to see $9,000 again soon.
