Long Trade Ideas

  • Go long after a bullish price action reversal on the H1 time frame following the next touch of $9,190 or $8,802.
  • Place 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 $9,489.
  • Place 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 the picture had become more bullish technically with the breakout, and beyond the next resistance level at $9,489 the price had even more room to rise with no resistance, although the big round number and psychological level at $10,000 would probably have an effect if it is reached.

This was a good call as the price has held up. Technically, I have just had to adjust the nearby support level downwards slightly.

The price is now showing a bullish consolidation pattern. Due to the strength of the recent bullish move, this is a bullish sign, but it would make sense to only take a long bias and enter a long trade following a bullish bounce at $9,190 or following two consecutive hourly closes above the resistance level at $9,489 later.

It is notably bullish to see Bitcoin advancing or holding firm in the current risk-off market environment.
