Bear Market (Bear Market)
A bear market is characterised by falling prices and increased selling of assets. The situation is often self-sustaining due to the fact that falling prices encourage investors to sell assets which in turn exacerbates the downward trend. A drop in value of 20% or more, for a period of minimum two months, is often regarded as an official entry into a bear market.
