A Five Year Bull Run | RCC Viewpoints

By Mark Anthony Howard

 

The cliche “What goes up, must come down” is no bull. But a five year bull run sure is fun.

The use of “bull” to describe  a market comes from the way the animal attacks its opponents.

Bull Market by Mark Anthony HowardWhen attacking a bull is known to forcibly thrust its horns up into the air. This action is a metaphor for the movement of a market. If the trend is up, it’s a bull market.
The term “bull market” is most often used to refer to the stock market, but can also be applied to anything that is publicly traded, such as bonds, currencies and commodities.

Investopedia’s dictionary tool defines a bull market as a financial market of a group of securities in which prices are rising, or are expected to rise.
The particular market usually occurs when those group of securities prices rise faster than the overall average rate.

The average duration of a bull market lasts about 4.5 years. This March, 2014 marked the start of the 5th fiscal year of  wall streets 12th historical bull market.

Since the stock market on March 8, 1817.  Only three of the 11 previous bull markets have gone on into a 6th year.
The key to capitalizing upon a bull market is optimism among investors and economic growth periods.

As the market rates return securities of higher and higher,  we’ll see if which investors and traders greedy will incline them to try to defy physics, gravity and history by riding this wild bull into a 6th year.
