One of the first most important and fundamental thing for any trader to do, is to properly define price levels on chart.
Dealing with Bitcoin price in 2019 you can witness it's peak near 20 000 price range and as price went down by now to 3750 area, this means most traders will set their levels at closest round numbers like of course at the middle 10 000 and...
Here's another example of the larger time frame providing plenty of chances on the lower time frame.
A healthy breakout is one with buildup against the level under attack. If we keep probing/failing....and STILL attacking the level from closer and closer, you know where the pressure is.
I'm sure you already use variable size to consistently risk the same % of...

(These are not trades I took, I'm just building a solid study library and I suggest you do the same).
When you have your eyes consistently at the same important levels (preferably horizontal ones), you'll quickly see the difference between a buildup that creates a powerful breakout vs a breakout fail / trap.
Naked run ups like this can be scary to get in front of, and it's not a straightforward entry, especially if you're executing on the H1. But this is why you...
