Bitcoin extends steep fall as uncertainty grows

Bitcoin extends steep fall into second day, being down over 7% into early US session, following Tuesday’s 9.5% drop (the biggest one-day loss since Sep 13).
Cryptos are under increased pressure for the second day, as fears about the financial health of major exchange FTX grow, despite plans for a rescue deal from bigger rival Binance, which signed a nonbinding agreement to buy FTX’s non-US unit to help cover a liquidity crunch of the rival exchange.
The uncertainty remains high and could lead to further losses as two sides so far did not disclose the terms of their agreement and also unclear situation over whether they will proceed with agreement.
Bitcoin fell to the lowest in two years, with break of a multi-month base at 18600 zone (reinforced by Fibo 76.4% of larger 3317 / 68911 advance) adding to negative outlook.
Firm break here would risk acceleration towards 12633 (100MMA) and unmask psychological 10000 level.
Bearish daily and weekly studies support the action, with bears expected to remain firmly in play unless a substantial  change in fundamentals occurs.
