A bull market is the market condition when prices continue to rise. Markets follow two general trends over time. Either prices are in an upswing (increase) or they are in a downswing (decrease). Think of a bull market as when a bull uses its horns in an upward motion.
When prices fall over a period of time, that’s a bear market. Think of a bear swiping downward with its claws, knocking the market down. A bull market and bear market are used when describing the trends of securities.
