"wall", "bull", "rally" etc.

is there some kind of online dictionary for currency-trading language somewhere?

Wall- large order on the order book
Bull- person who believes price will go up
Bear- person who believes price will go down
Rally- sharp move up

Does crash mean that the price is rising and I should go all in and buy?

Crash is a sudden move down.  During an uptrend like we're in now a crash is usually a good time to buy.  Until it's the crash that ends the uptrend and starts a downtrend, then it's a bad time to buy.

Cool, but paulie_w is asking for help so I just wanted to make sure we don't confuse him.  I know, it's a futile effort on these boards since we're all making money for sitting on our hands and have too much free time.
