The Bulls and Bears In The Market

1 March 2011

A Bull Market

This is when the market showing is confidence. Indicators of confidence are prices going up, market indices like the ASX go up too. Number of shares traded is also high and even the number of companies entering the stock market show that the market is confident

 A Bear Market

A bear market is the opposite to a bull. If the markets fall by more than 20% then we have entered a bear market. A bear market is a market showing a lack of confidence. Prices hover at the same price then go down, indices fall too and volumes are stagnant. In a bear market people are waiting for the bulls to start driving the prices up again. However, a bear is a very tentative bull or a bull that is asleep.
