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 due to several bullish technical signs, I took a bullish bias on Bitcoin, which had been boosted by the improvement in global risk sentiment we have seen over recent days.

I thought the long-term bullish trend was likely to continue and so I decided to enter a long trade if we got two consecutive hourly closes above $16,000.

The price has not even reached $16,000 so this call was enough to keep out of trouble. In fact, a long trade from a bullish bounce at support did set up.

The technical picture remains bullish, we are seeing a bullish consolidation in the form a triangle pattern, while all the key support levels are remaining valid.

I think we will see more upside, although this is not close to being certain – it is just more likely.

Therefore, I prefer to wait for the breakout, so I will again be ready to enter a long trade if we get two consecutive hourly closes above $16,000 later.BTC/USDThere is nothing of high importance due today regarding the USD.
