BTC/USD Forex Signal – 18 March 2019

By Adam Lemon

Last Thursday’s signals could have been triggered by the large doji candlestick producing a profitable bullish trade, but the action would probable not have looked attractive to most traders at the time.

Short Trade

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 the price needed a breakout on high volatility and when it eventually comes it should be worth riding it. This was a good call as after an initial huge doji candlestick, the price broke upwards to make a high above $4,000, printing higher support levels along the way.

The picture now is generally more bullish, with no resistance to halt a further advance until $4,374. However, the price action of recent hours has suggested a topping out at about $4,000. It looks likely that today’s pivotal level will be $3,936 – a strong bounce here and I would take a bullish bias, but if the price breaks below I would avoid any long trades unless $3,876 survives a test from above later on.Regarding the USD, there is nothing of high importance due today.
