No-brainer

A market in which it does not take very complex analysis to figure out how securities are going to perform, such as a strong bull market.

No-Brainer

Informal; a market that is obviously making a certain movement. Generally speaking, this refers to a strong bull market or a strong bear market in which every investor is either making or losing a great deal of money. A no-brainer means that little analysis is required to know whether to buy or sell.
