What Is The Bull Market?

By Jack Wogan

In trading it is very important to know the trend in order to achieve performance in this commercial sport. Everything can be traded from stocks, to bonds and commodities. The market can evolve in various way changing its direction not only every day but also every minute. These modifications need to be known as soon as they appear for agents to be able to make the correct and, if possible, profitable decisions.

A bull market is one in which demand is higher than the offer. The name of this trend was inspired by the way a raging bull attacks. It lifts its horns in the air which makes it look bigger and more threatening to its opponent. The bulls are usually the name of the market participants as they follow each other in the same direction the way it happens in a herd.

When the general tendency of prices is to rise you have a bull market. It marks a moment of great optimism on the part of investors. That is why they dare to make more transactions and to diversify their portfolios following a wise saying which is “don’t keep all your eggs in one basket”. Such periods are triggered by several factors such as an economical recovery or high morals on the part of investors. They can obtain great profits by making the right movements in such times.

The idea of bear market might turn out to be useful in understanding the previous term. These two are opposite as the latter describes a period when the market is down. The bear attack is one focused on its swiping its paws to the ground. That is why it became an appropriate name for such moments. The main features of this period is less boldness in investing and a sensible decrease in the participants’ expectations. Some of them even quit the market until it becomes friendlier again.

The general trends in trade are most of the times opposite from the way precious metals are rated and sold. The reason is that in times of recession, when the power of the currency drops, people think of alternative ways of maintaining the value of their fortune. Investing in gold bullion is one of these choices and that is why gold and silver are in high demand and sold at higher prices.

When you decide to invest in gold you need to have into consideration buying gold bullion coins, which have 99.9% purity.
