    To start with trading, firstly you need to identify the dead cat bounce pattern, you should short the stock when the price action breaks the last bottom created. Then open your trade on the right time. So, make sure to identify a relatively strong bearish trend then mark the bearish impulse with a bearish trend line. You’ll notice price breaks the trend line and increases. Then mark the level of the last bottom and take a note of how price breaks the last bottom, confirming the pattern. Next up, short the stock and place a stop loss order above the top. Lastly, stay in the market until the price creates a bearish move equal to the initial impulse.

    In order to explain bull market, I shall also include the bear market because the terminology arrived from both of them. Broadly speaking, the terms “bear” and “bull” are thought to derive from the way in which each animal attacks its opponents. Its interesting to see that the name comes from the fact that a bull will thrust its horns up into the air, while a bear will swipe down. These actions could then be related metaphorically to the movement of a market. Suffice to say, if the trend was up, it was considered a bull market and if the trend was down, it was a bear market.
    Conversely, because bears and bulls were widely considered to be opposites or each others rivals due to the once-popular blood sport of bull-and-bear fights, the term bull stands as the opposite of bears.

    Generally, a credit crunch is caused by a sustained period of careless and inappropriate lending which results in losses for lending institutions and investors in debt when the loans turn sour and the full extent of bad debts becomes known. It can happen due to some major causes, like risky loans. Normally, a bank or lending agency would not give out loans to customers who have a low likelihood of paying back the loan. However, the climate among mortgage brokers was such that these so-called sub-prime loans were sold in huge numbers. Companies offered incentives and created consolidation loans to mask the sub-prime risk factor which all made it worse. Easy credit condition and bubble formation can also lead to a credit crunch. If the prices are already rising and in that investors start to speculate than that would again lead to credit crunch.
