I'm a carnivore bull that eats fish until hunting season's over. The I hibernate like a furry bear.

I avoid to be a pig.

Bull & Bear

Bull markets are characterized by optimism, investor confidence and expectations that strong results will continue. It's difficult to predict consistently when the trends in the market will change. Part of the difficulty is that psychological effects and speculation may sometimes play a large role in the markets.

The use of "bull" and "bear" to describe markets comes from the way the animals attack their opponents. A bull thrusts its horns up into the air while a bear swipes its paws down. These actions are metaphors for the movement of a market. If the trend is up, it's a bull market. If the trend is down, it's a bear market.

Fish isn't anything.

A whale is someone who buys large quantities of something, in this case Bitcoins.

Bears generally believe the price is going down and try to profit from it.
Bulls are optimistic about the price and try to profit from gains.
Fish just swim along.

whales not only buy but also tend to take big dumps on market to shake the tree a little and profit from scared fish that forgot to hold and think longterm.

Who uses the term Fish? Shocked
I've heard whale but..

In poker, fishes are those who pays sharks.

In market trades it might be the same ?
