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 was now much more bearish than it was last Thursday, with the price breaking down below the former bullish channel. I thought that there may be another short opportunity if there was a convincing bearish reversal between $3,600 and $3,570 and I would have taken a bearish bias if that happened.

This scenario seemed close to playing out before the price suddenly spiked up and stabilized close to the next resistance level of $3,732, before selling off a little. We can now expect the level just below $3,570 to probably be supportive.

I have no bias, any bounce off a level could be good, but if $3,568 holds as support then we may be seeing the final leg of a bullish “over and under” pattern begin to form.
