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.

The terms bullish and bearish are usually only to signify a directional bias or to signify theres alot of buying or selling pressure. But for a fun observation, sometimes in assets like bitcoin for example you can see the difference visually .... quick bullish moves tend to spike higher quickly resulting in candle formations that once a retrace is apparent you have what could resemble bullhorns.... then with some of the bearish moves you notice price rolling over and dropping giving a crude sillhouette of a bear side on

Bullish means that anticipation of price rising, while bearish means the anticipating of price falling.

Simple way to view this.
Bull attacks with horns, hence up. Bear attacks with claw, hence down.

When talking about markets, a bull market is a market that is predominantly controlled by bulls, and a bearish market is a market where the bears are prevailing. One example of a bull market is the long trend up that lasted for more than ten years in the S&P500 after the financial crisis of 2008. An example of a bear market is the one that followed when stocks declined sharply because of the lockdowns in many economies due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Bulls are buyers as they push prices up and bears are sellers as they push prices down. The names are inspired from these animals' habits when fighting.
The market is bullish when prices rise and bearish when prices fall.

The bull's task is to have time to buy an asset that is starting to rise in price at the very beginning of the cycle and sell it at the most favorable price. It is advisable to close the deal as close as possible to the trend reversal point - this will allow you to get the maximum profit.

Bullish means traders are willing to pay for the price they are getting and this series of activity take the trend to up eventually making up the bullish trend.

Bearish means traders do not want to hold their positions in the anticipation of price will go down and start selling the position to get maximum out from the moment. This keeps on going thus making a bearish trend.

Long and short has a small difference or a lot at the same point. When you long on any asset you have the ownership of that which I think more descriptive than buy. And same case with sell too. Sell means you are selling something that you own but going short tells that you're selling something that you don't have at the moment.

Bullish investors believe stocks are going up. ... Simply put, "bullish" means an investor believes a stock or the overall market will go higher. Conversely, "bearish" is the term used for investors who believe a stock will go down, or underperform.

bulls are the buyers while the bears are the sellers. A bullish trend signifies the rise in buying activities while the bearish trend signifies the rise in selling activities
