It is said that the Bull and Bear expressions were first explained in 1775 in the book “Every Man His Own Broker” by Thomas Mortimer. At that time a Bull was someone that was long a stock and could be seen running up and down “Exchange Alley” (London’s version of Wall Street at the time) looking to get the best price. A Bear was someone that was short a stock and was calmer, quietly waiting for the stock price to drop.
