Over the last week, the coin lost close to 6% of its value and in the last 24 hours, BTC fell by 3%. The past week has been extremely choppy for Bitcoin and also for the altcoin due to continued market weakness.
The coin had plunged to a low of $25,000, BTC had last traded about that price level in December 2020.
Bitcoin has recovered by $5000, however, a chance of a further downslide cannot be ruled out. The technical of the coin pointed towards continued selling pressure in the market.
Bitcoin was priced at $29,100 at the time of writing after the coin was rejected from the $31,000 price level. Immediate resistance for the coin stood at $25,000.
A fall beneath the same will send the coin straight to $19,000. On the flip side, if the bulls send a temporary relief then the coin will target moving above the $30,000 price level and trade close to the $31,000 resistance mark.

Support from the buyers can push the coin above the immediate resistance of $30,000. The support from buyers seems like an unlikely situation considering how the coin has formed a bearish flag (yellow).
A bearish flag indicates further push from the bears and this could cause the coin to trade below the $20,000 support mark.
