Bitcoin will trend lower if sellers beak below $13,600 support

Bitcoin (BTC) is in a sideways move below $14,000 after the bulls fail to break the $14,000 resistance. On October 31, Bitcoin in its current price surge reached a high of $14,055 but buyers failed to sustain the bullish momentum.

Today, BTC is trading at $13.705 at the time of writing. Nonetheless, for the past three days, the price movement has been confined between $13,600 and $14,000.  

The bulls have been defending the current support while making attempts to break the resistance. BTC will trend lower if sellers break below the $13,600 support. A breakdown will result in price reaching the low at $13,000 and the subsequent drop to $12,800. On the upside, the $14,000 resistance can be broken, if the coin rebounds above $13,800 support and momentum is sustained. Meanwhile, the sideways movement of the crypto will continue, if the range-bound levels remain unbroken.
