What does bullish and bearish mean in forex?

Solution
When the market makes a bullish move, this means it is moving upwards, and when it makes a bearish move, this means it is moving downwards. Bulls are usually people who have bought a certain currency pair or financial instrument (or those who expect it to go up), and bears are those who sold the instrument or expect it to go down.

The names come from the typical movements of a bull and a bear. A bull usually butts up his opponent whereas a bear smacks his victim down. In the same sense, bulls want to take the price up, and bears want to take the price down. The price eventually moves in the direction of the strongest of either one of those two sides.

Bulls think the markets will go up. Bears think the market will go down. 'Bearish' and 'bullish' can describe an individual opinion or a general market trend. A market in a long-term uptrend is called a bull market.

Bullish means when the trader thinks the market will go up and trades will be in profit and bearish means when the trader thinks the market will go down and the trader will have to bear the losses.

A bullish trend is a situation in which the overall trend of the market is moving upwards, a bearish trend is when the prices are continuously falling. Note that it is not fixed that in a bullish trend the prices will not go down, or in a bearish trend the prices will not go up, the whole point is that the overall movement for a particular period of time will define the bullish or the bearish trends.

In simple terms - Bullish means when traders are bullish about an asset, they believe that its price will rise. Bull markets feature rising prices.

And for Bearish, its when traders are bearish about an asset, they believe that its price will fall. Bear markets feature falling prices.
