The term bullish can also refer to the whole of a market or a singular stock, token or cryptocurrency as in the case of the phrase “Bitcoin is bullish today since it hit a new high”

 

A bull market makes everyone feel good and makes every trade feel like it is done by a pro, but always be cautious and exercise temperance as bull markets do not last forever.
