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 technical picture had become considerably more bullish, but the resistance level just above the price at $10,562 also looked very solid and important. I thought bulls should have a slight edge, so I was prepared to take a bullish bias if we had gotten a solid bullish bounce following a retracement to $10,254.

Unfortunately, the low of the day was a little higher than that level, but I was correct to look towards the bullish side as the price advanced for another day.

It looks like we are getting a bearish retracement which will take the price back down towards the two support levels and the broken trend lines. I would be prepared to again take a bullish bias if we get a solid bullish reversal bounce at either of those two support levels today.BTCUSDThere is nothing of high importance due today concerning the USD.
