The price has room to rise to $33,445.
Previous BTC/USD Signal
My previous signal on 9th May was not triggered, as there was no bullish price action at any of the key support levels I had identified when they were reached that day. Unfortunately, the price came close to $33,828 but never quite reached that level.

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.
I wrote in my last piece on 9th May that Bitcoin had fallen with strong bearish momentum after breaking down from a consolidating triangle chart pattern and entered what had historically been a very pivotal zone, from the support level at $28,607 to approximately $35k. I thought that if the price could get established below the support level at $28,607 it could quickly fall to $10k or even lower.
The price did get established below $28,607, but my call was not great as the price rebounded quite firmly and is now making a bullish consolidation above what is again the nearest key support level at $28,607.
I see Bitcoin’s recovery from the price area below $28,607 as technically significant, showing that buyers are still prepared to step in strongly when Bitcoin reaches long-term lows.
If the support level at $28,607 does not break down, I see the next likely price movement for Bitcoin as upwards to the next resistance level at $33,445.
I will be happy to take a long trade here if we get a retracement to $28,607 and a bullish bounce off that level.
Concerning the USD, there will be a release of Retail Sales data at 1:30pm London time.
