  1. 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.
