Bears are good animals, especially when they are stuffed and sitting on your bed, but probably not when you meet them in the middle of a dense jungle. Nevertheless, they are synonymous with crashing stock prices. Much the way bulls are with rising stock prices.
Anyone who’s invested, or not, would know what a bull market and bear market mean. Hence, the name Bulls & Bears for our webcomics.
All of us love comics, don’t we? Comics are a fun way to look at life from a different perspective. Bulls & Bears will try to help you look at investments in a newer way and make a better investor out of you.
