Bear rally

Bear rally

A temporary surge in stock markets while the primary market trend is bearish.

Bear Rally

A rapid increase in stock prices following a downturn. A bear rally occurs when investors begin buying stocks in large amounts, which represents an increase in demand and therefore raises the price. However, because fundamental information has not improved, the bear rally is short-lived and is unlikely to be sustained. A bear rally is thus a brief respite between two downturns.
