Long Trade Idea

  • Long entry at a bullish price action reversal on the H1 time frame following the next touch of $10,851.

  • 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 Ideas

  • Short entry after a bearish price action reversal on the H1 time frame following the next touch of $11,561 or $11,808.

  • 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 there are lots of bearish signals, but the price was now close to a stack of key support levels starting at $9,610 and the price had not spent much time below $10,000. This suggests that the price was going to make a either a bullish reversal or begin to consolidate above this area of congested support levels, perhaps aided by buying every time it dips below $10,000. This was a pretty good call as the price bottomed at $9,620 and rose by quite a lot from there before peaking and falling from $11,561. Technically, the medium-term bearish trend lines have been broken, which is a mildly bullish sign.

The pivotal point today is very likely to be $10,851, and if that level holds with a bullish bounce which is strong, I could see the price continuing up to the $12,500 area. I would take a bullish bias in this scenario.BTCUSDConcerning the USD, there will be a release of the ADP Non-Farm Employment Change forecast at 1:15pm London time followed at 3pm by ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI data.
