    Sabrina,
    In the stock market there are two oposing trends:
    bull market is "a prolonged period in which investment prices rise faster than their historical average."
    bear market means "a prolonged period in which investment prices fall, accompanied by widespread pessimism." So, bulls good, bears bad...

    Hi Sabrina!
    Additionally, in Spanish, bull market is "mercado alcista" and bear market "mercado bajista".
    Cheers!

    Default bulls v. bears

    I agree with all your definitions: "bull market" is a situation, in the stock market, where prices are rising and lots of shareholders are buying, and "bear market" is just the opposite. (you can find the explanation in the Oxford Dictionary of Business English).
    Greetings,
