" Bulls make money. Bears make money. Pigs? They get slaughtered!"
(Gordon Gekko)

In the financial jargon, the word “bull” stands for “upward” or “positive”. This is due to the fact that when a bull attacks, it lowers its head and then suddenly raises it trying to hit and lift the opponent with its horns. From this similitude with uptrends in financial markets, traders use to say that a growing and positive market is “bullish”.

A bull, ready to attack and lift its opponent with its dreadful horns.

The most famous bull in the financial world is the Wall Street Bull, even if other stock exchanges have placed bulls sculpture, as in the Bombay Stock Exchange. Frankfurt Stock Exchange, instead, doesn’t just host the statue of a raging bull that watches over the current market trend: in the german exchange, in fact, both a bull and a bear are present as they gaze at each other, unmovable as it is in the nature of statues to be so, but concretely true and present in every moment, in every market.

In conclusion, a positive and growing market is called a bull market.
