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 action looked quite bullish, but the price would need to trade above the key resistance at $4,374. I was ready to take a bullish bias above that level. This wasn’t a bad call as the level has produced the high price ever since, so it was the key pivotal level of the day.

The price now is hard to call: it is medium and long-term bearish but over the short-term seems to be close to making a bullish term. The key things to watch out for are whether the medium-term trend line shown in the chart below holds, and also whether the support at $3,870 holds. I would be bearish if the price trades below that latter level for a couple of hours.
