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 last Thursday that the price was showing short-term bearish price action, so although the downwards movement was probably mostly played out already, it looked likely to continue down to hit the support level at $9,073, so might be traded short on the shorter time frames. This was not a great call in the end because the price was not really able to get much below the $9,400 level before turning around and rising slowly from there.

The technical picture is still quite bearish. The price is failing to break above the resistance level at $9,801 which seems certain to be today’s important pivotal point. The longer this level holds, the more bearish the outlook will be. However, for today, I would prefer to wait for a bearish reversal at the next higher resistance level near $10,000 before taking a bearish bias.BTCUSDThere is nothing of high importance due today regarding the USD, it is a public holiday in the U.S.A. today.
