The imagery of the bull and the bear have long been associated with the movement in global financial markets. Originally linked to the first futures traders in the 1700’s, the middlemen in the sale of bear skins would speculate on the future purchase price of skins from the trappers, hoping they would drop. Conversely, because bears and bulls were widely considered to be opposites due to the once-popular blood sport of bull-and-bear fights, the term bear stands as the opposite of bulls. The bull keeps the bearish market in check as it thrusts its horns into the air while the bear swipes down on the unfortunate prey.
