Bull Market

In a bull market many securities in a market are having their values go up progressively. This is generally a market where the values are increasing for three or more months. This can be caused primarily due to confidence in investors. A bull market is the opposite of a bear market. An example of this came during the massive increases in the American stock markets during much of the 1990s.
