Philippine Stock Exchange

       I got inspired today and also there was a free time for me in the afternoon that's why I was able to write an article about bull market instead of waiting for the 3 day holiday here next week.
       While browsing an online community several days ago, a post by Sir Gus Cosio, "Bull on the Loose", caught my attention at once that I immediately read it. No, he wass not talking about a live bull running around the neighborhood. Ha ha ha! In his post he mentioned about the PSE index surging around 20% over the past 2 months and he mentioned some of the stocks he has been following that gained so much in just that short span. Also, we have been discussing in LIP thread in the KFAM forum about having a bull market at the moment in stocks. But what actually is a bull market?

Bull market

A bull market is associated with increasing investor confidence, and increased investing in anticipation of future price increases (capital gains). A bullish trend in the stock market often begins before the general economy shows clear signs of recovery. It is a win-win situation for the investors.


Bull market  

A prolonged period in which investment prices rise faster than their historical average. Bull markets can happen as a result of an economic recovery, an economic boom, or investor psychology. The longest and most famous bull market is the one that began in the early 1990s in which the U.S. equity markets grew at their fastest pace ever. opposite of bear market.  


       In Ayeckanic™'s term (as what I have understood from its meaning of course), we have a bull market if the market is "continuously" going up and with the share prices keeps on rising because of some reasons like an economic recovery, an economic boom or investor psychology.
       Example of a well known bull market is in India's Bombay Stock Exchange Index, SENSEX, which had a bull market trend for about five years from April 2003 to January 2008 as it increased from 2,900 points to 21,000 points.
