Bull Market

Loading the player...

A bull market is a financial market with rising asset prices that are fueled by investors’ optimism, confidence and expectations. While bull markets are partly based on actual investment performance, they are also partly based on investor psychology. The bull market gets its name from the way a bull thrusts its horns upward. When investors are optimistic about investment performance, they are called “bullish.”
