INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Gold Bull'

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.
