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 the big picture here was a consolidation pattern between $7,463 and $8,143. If the price could get established above $8,153 and begin to use it as higher support, I would take a bullish bias. This was a good call insofar as I was right to look to the bullish direction, with the former resistance level nearby becoming invalidated, although the new higher support is now at $8,071 and not $8,153.

I take a weakly bullish bias and would enter a long trade if we get a strong bullish bounce at either $7,930 or $7,754. If the price can get established above $8,340 that would be a very bullish sign and indicate that we will probably see a break of the multi-month high close to $9,000 soon.BTCUSDThere is nothing important due today concerning the USD.
