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

We finally got a bearish breakdown from an area of consolidation a few days ago. This went about as far as the important psychological level of $7,750 before beginning a deep bullish retracement. This retracement should logically reach as high as the $9,000 area and may well continue to $10,000 or even higher.

Today’s pivotal point is very likely to be $8,533. It is more significantly bullish above that level than it would be significantly bullish below it.BitcoinRegarding the USD, there will be a release of CPI (inflation) data at 1:30pm.
