Bear, bearish trading


What is a bear trader?

If traders and investors think that the prices in a market will fall, they describe the market as being "bearish". A trader who wants to profit from expecting a falling or bear market trend will do so by short selling financial instruments such as commodities, stock market shares or currencies.

The opposite — expecting prices to rise — is called bullish.
