Many countries celebrate Easter Monday today, and although cryptocurrency markets never close, holidays and weekends are usually marked by decreased liquidity. A failure to move above $7,000 may create a short-term bearish trend and push BTC towards critical  $6,000.

ETH/USD has lost 4.5% since the beginning of the day to trade at $153.00 at the time of writing. The coin retains short-term bearish bias amid low volatility; however, in the long-run, ETH is still on a recovery track as long as it stays above $150.00

XRP/USD is hovering around the psychological barrier of $0.1800, down 4% since the start of Monday. The key local resistance is created by $0.1900 reinforced by the intraday high at $0.1896.
