Are you new to stock investing and ever wondered what people meant by referring to markets being bull or bear? Well, let me explain it to you in simple terms what they mean.
A Bull Market is when the overall market’s share prices are rising. This is a time when many shareholders are buying a lot of shares in the marketplace, causing higher prices and more profitability. Don’t we all love Bull markets?
A Bear Market is when the overall market’s share prices are falling. Shareholders are selling off their shares causing lower prices, profit loss, and less profitability.
You may notice when stock analysts describe a particular market or stocks having a bullish trend or bearish sell-off. They are simply referring to highs, lows and the attitude of the market. Do you think we are in a bear market, or is it bearish? Leave your answer in the comments below!
