Bulls are market participants and commentators that believe the price of a security will rise.
Other Trading Basics
Equities that follow the economic cycle. For example banking shares typically rise and fall with a cycle.
Backwardation occurs when a bid price exceeds the ask price.
This usually occurs when stock is suspended or under a share repurchase scheme.
It can also mean that a futures contract will trade at a higher price when it is coming close to expiring.
The opposite of backwardation is known as contango.
How big companies finance short-term cash flow.
Like bonds but without the coupon, instead, the APR is determined by the discount the agreements are entered into and the length of time to repayment.
For example, a blue chip company might borrow $9.95m dollars today and repay $10m in a month’s time.
