Insuranceopedia explains Bull Market

The scenario gets its name from the way that the stock market going upward is reminiscent of a bull thrusting its horns upward when attacking.

During a bull market, stocks increase in terms of worth and there is a surge in investments, resulting in a positive economy that can usually be felt by the general population. Economists, however, point out that this is simply a phase in a cycle and that the market will eventually slow down, falter, and sometimes crash.
