Bear market
A market in which traders and investors are feeling negative and prices are falling or static.
    
Market trends are described as periods when bulls (buyers) consistently outnumber bears (sellers), or vice versa. The terms "Bull market" and "bear market" describe the trend and sentiment.
    
A bear market is often accompanied by widespread pessimism. Investors fearing further losses are tempted to sell, with negative sentiment feeding on itself in a vicious circle. The most famous bear market in history was after the Wall Street Crash of 1929 and lasted from 1930 to 1932, marking the start of the Great Depression. A milder, Low-level Long-term bear market occurred from about 1967 to 1982, encompassing the Stagflation economy, energy crises in the 1970s, and High unemployment in the early 1980s.
    
Prices change constantly on the Open market; a bear market is not a simple decline, but a substantial drop in the prices of a Range of issues over a defined period of time. According to The Vanguard Group, "While there's no agreed-upon definition of a bear market, one generally accepted measure is a price decline of 20% or more over at least a two-month period."[6] However, no consensual definition of a bear market exists to clearly differentiate a primary market trend from a Secondary Market trend.
    
Investors frequently confuse bear markets with corrections. Corrections are much shorter lived, whereas bear markets occur over a longer period with typically greater magnitudes of loss from top to bottom.
