Bear Market

Loading the player...

A financial market with declining asset prices fueled by investors’ pessimism, lack of confidence and negative expectations. While bear markets are partly based on actual investment performance, they are also partly based on investor psychology. The bear market may get its name from the way a bear swipes its paws downward at its victims. When investors are pessimistic about investment performance, they are called “bearish.”
