A bull market occurs when stocks are rising, whereas a bear market occurs when stocks are falling for an extended period of time.

Beta is a metric for comparing a stock's volatility to that of the wider market. The beta of the market as a whole is 1. Stocks that have a value greater than one are more volatile than the market as a whole (meaning they will generally go up more than the market goes up, and go down more than the market goes down).
