Cryptocurency markets sharply retreated from March highs due to a sell-off in risk assets, amid surging US bond yields and a strengthening US dollar.

Some positive news surfaced over the weekend that Grayscale Investments CEO Michael Sonnenshein sees a possible launch of a bitcoin ETF, with the US Securities and Exchange Commission approving an application for the Teucrium Bitcoin Futures ETF earlier this month.

From the technical perspective, bitcoin may encounter a near-term rebounding opportunity with a double bottom pattern.
