Those bears who wanted the Bitcoin (BTC) price to dip below the $9,000 level didn't get their wish. According to trader Josh Rager, there has been an "official" bearish-to-bullish trend change. 

The top coin has already printed a series of higher highs and lower lows on the daily chart.

Expert Claims Bitcoin (BTC) Price Directly Linked to Number of Coronavirus Cases

The $9,100 flip was a game-changer 

On Feb. 4, the Bitcoin (BTC) price dipped to as low as $9,062 on the Bitstamp exchange. With bears taking back control, it looked like another "China pump."

The following day made a significant difference for the bulls. A couple of solid green candles put them back in the driver's seat and allowed BTC to reach a new yearly high of $9,777. 

Trader Jacob Canfield says that the $9,100 flip was "a big deal" for BTC since this level acted as support for the big descending triangle that eventually broke in September and the China-driven rally in late October.
