Yesterday’s signals were not triggered as there was insufficiently bearish price action at $8,893 – however, this level did contain the high of the day almost to the pip so was very accurate as resistance.

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 still bullish, with higher support formed at $8,546 and the price has continued to advance. However, bulls needed to be aware that we also had new lower resistance which was likely to be a pivotal level now.

This was a pretty good call as support continues to hold so the picture remains bullish, but the nearby resistance is holding as well, giving a ranging pattern between $8,893 and $8,546.

As the major movement is still upwards, I think it is wise to keep a bullish bias as long as the support at $8,546 continues to hold. So, I would be very happy to take a long trade if we get a bullish bounce at $8,546 today.

As Bitcoin is at relative lows and is being bought as 2020 begins, I think there is a good chance we are seeing the start of a long-term price rise.BTCUSDConcerning the USD, there will be a release of Retail Sales data at 1:30pm London time.
