With Bitcoin at daily resistance, we spoke yesterday about price offering an opportunity to get short.

While the trade didn't quite go to plan, the price action is still worth talking about.

BTC/USD Hourly:

As we were above higher time frame resistance (the grey box from the daily chart), we were looking to play from the short side.

We then zoomed into the hourly chart to find a short term area of support that when retested as resistance, could be used to short off (the blue box).

Now here's the hourly price action since:

While the trade didn't work out, look at the way that the intraday zone was retested as support and then how the top of the daily zone also held after the momentum move.

Why Didn't This Trade Work?

With Bitcoin currently in a bullish trend, selling against momentum at the first sign of resistance may not have been the smartest move.

But to be fair, you can see on the hourly char that the short term support turned resistance was retested twice before breaking on the third touch.

This could have given you ample opportunity to get out at break even and is something to consider depending on your risk tolerance.

But hey, this is trading ;)


In case you missed it, this is a setup that uses my simple forex support and resistance trading strategy.
