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 had been a strong upwards push flipping the level at $7,793 from resistance to new higher probable support, and although the price was a little below where the long trade entry would have been made, there was another higher support level we could draw in the price chart at $7,923. These are bullish signs, yet I saw the bearish case and was only weakly bullish.

This was a reasonably good call as the price has dipped over the past 24 hours but ended up back where it was this time yesterday. The support level nearby had to be readjusted to $7,753 (confluent with the psychological level at $7,750) and there is also higher support at $7,930 but I do not want to use that second level yet as it has already almost been reached.

The big picture is a consolidation pattern between $7,463 and $8,143. If the price can get established above $8,153 and begin to use it as higher support, I would take a bullish bias.BTCUSDRegarding the USD, there will be a release of CPI (inflation) data at 1:30pm London time.
