Secular Bull Market

Market Terms

We don't know everything about the markets.  We're just devoted to learners.  Taken from those smarter than ourselves, here's how we define Secular Bull Market.

A prolonged period of above-average returns where drawdowns are relatively shallow and recoveries from pullbacks are relatively rapid.  This is in contrast to a Secular Bear Market, or a prolonged period of below-average total returns where drawdowns are severe and recoveries are lengthy.  The United States has experiences secular bull markets from 1949-1966, 1982-2000, and 2016- (potentially) 2033.
