Bitcoin (BTC) price analysis, October 26. Following its recent rally to $13,200 high, Bitcoin has resumed a sideways trend.

Bitcoin Price Long-Term Prediction: Bullish

The current uptrend is facing strong rejection at the $13,200 to $13,500 resistance zones. 

Consequently, the king coin has been compelled to a range-bound movement since October 21. For the past five days, the crypto had been fluctuating between $12,800 and $13,200. In the last 24 hours, buyers attempted to break the $13,200 resistance. 

The bearish reaction repelled the upward move as the price fell to the range-bound zone. On the upside, if the bulls break the $13,200 and $13,500 resistances, the upside momentum will resume. Bitcoin will rally above $14,000 if the bullish scenario is met. Otherwise, the current range-bound movement will persist. Today, Bitcoin is trading at $13,091 as the price continues to retest $13,200.
