Last night, just like yesterday, Bitcoin (BTC) failed to overcome the last major hurdle before the annual high. However, it remains very exciting as the Bitcoin price is currently not far from the crucial resistance level.

Bitcoin price in tension
The important value in question is around $37,500. This is a strong resistance level that has already stopped Bitcoin from reaching new highs several times this week. Yesterday evening, Bitcoin rose above this level several times and reached a high of around $37,800, but was unable to hold here.
Nevertheless, Bitcoin is still trading at least well above the support level of $37,000. If the price is indeed lower, $36,400 is the next level to keep an eye on.
