So today, let’s discuss Bull Markets and Bear Markets – Terms we sometimes hear. What do they mean, Eric? It could be confusing:
“It has to do with these animals, and the way they attack. So a Bear Market, if you think of a bear, stands up and it swoops down.”
“A Bull Market, you put your head down, you whack it up, and that’s the concise version. So a Bull Market is when things are up. Bear Market is the other way.”
