  • Put the stop loss 1 pip below the local swing low.

  • Move the stop loss to break even once the trade is $50 in profit by price.

  • Remove 50% of the position as profit when the trade is $50 in profit by price and leave the remainder of the position to run.

Short Trade Idea

  • Go short after a bearish price action reversal on the H1 time frame following the next touch of $14,256.

  • Put the stop loss 1 pip above the local swing high.

  • Move the stop loss to break even once the trade is $50 in profit by price.

  • Remove 50% of the position as profit when the trade is $50 in profit by price and leave the remainder of the position to run.

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 situation continued to look bullish as $12,383 continued to hold. I thought that if this new support held up, the price was likely to advance to at least $13,166 in line with the long-term bullish trend. I take a bullish bias above this price.

The level at $12,383 did not hold up precisely, but the bullish price action from a little below that saw the price continue to rise over the past day. Note that my resistance level at $13,166 has held almost to the pip: Bitcoin against USD tends to behave very technically, so obvious flipped support and resistance levels tend to hold relatively precisely.

For today, a break above $13,166 would be a very bullish sign, but the price may well fail before reaching the next resistance at $14,256 as the recent high price is between these levels.

I would take a bullish bias if the price will close above $13,166 for a couple of hours consecutively.BTCUSDConcerning the USD, the Chair of the Federal Reserve will be testifying before the House of Congress at 3pm London time, and there will be a release of FOMC Meeting Minutes at 7pm.
