Bull Market

A Bull Market phase refers to a period of sustained rising prices in a particular market. The term can refer to the overall state of the stock market or to a specific commodity like gold or platinum. It’s characterised by rising prices and investor optimism, as opposed to the state of pessimism that pervades during a Bear Market phase. During Bull Market periods, prices continue to rise steadily and future forecasts are good.
