Gold Bull


DEFINITION of 'Gold Bull'

A slang term for a market or investor who is bullish on gold. A gold bull anticipates the price of gold increasing over the next period of time. A gold bull market is one where the value of gold has a rising trend.


Sometimes a gold bull may be confused or mistaken for a dollar bear. In a dollar bear market, investors anticipate a decline in the dollar's value, so funds from the dollar market are transferred to gold. The dollar bear will raise the price of gold, which alludes to the presence of a gold bull. A true gold bull will persist through a bearish dollar market.
