Short Trade Ideas

  • Put the stop loss 1 pip above the local swing high.

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 it looked as if a deeper bearish pullback was underway. I thought that the most probable support level where we were likely to get a bullish turn was $7,477. I was correct about the bearish retracement before a bullish bounce, but I was wrong about the level where it would happen – it was actually the higher support level at $7,698 where we got the turn.

We have a more bullish picture now, but we still have a couple of resistance levels holding the price down, with the most important one at $8,216. I would take a bullish bias if we get a bounce at $7,947 and I would be more bullish still if the price can make two consecutive hourly closes above the resistance level at $8,375.

It is interesting that we may be seeing long-term buying now at these relatively lows as we begin 2020.BTCUSDThere is nothing of high importance due today concerning the USD.
