Bears & Bulls

Why do I keep hearing about bears and bulls? These are terms to descrbe how the stock market is doing. A bull market means that the market is trading up on average. The opposite is a bear market. This means that the market is trading down on average.  You always want to invest in a bull market, otherwise you lose money. Nobody knows where the term came from, but some think its because a bull raises its head when its about to charge and a bear lowers it’s head when it’s about to charge.

That’s all for now, Ben
