Bullish And Bearish

Recommended Posts

Having read some of the BOE's inflation report I see they refer to the RICS as being bearish. Obviously the term bull and bear are long standing terms for investors, but they're not often (until recently) applied to the housing market.

It struck me that the use of the term 'bearish' by the BOE, and other recent references in the media, hint of perhaps a greater influence of the HPC website (and TMF) than might be assumed?

Mostly the media stick to the terms 'experts' and 'doom-mongers' so why the now more common use of bulls and bears?

It could be a subtle expression admitting that property prices move in a cyclical way like all other financial markets.
