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 we could now expect the level just below $3,570 to probably be supportive.

I had no bias, but I thought that if $3,568 held as support then we may be seeing the final leg of a bullish “over and under” pattern begin to form.

I was broadly correct about the support, which was a few dollars lower than I expected but still held. However, the bulls look relatively weak, so I have little confidence in an upwards move from here. For bulls, holding the support at $3,563 will be crucial, but a sustained break below that level and the lower triangle trend line would be a more convincing bearish sign. I would take a bearish bias down to $3,450 if get this bearish break.
