I seem to remember hearing that the definition of a bear market, or maybe just one definition of a bear market, is that the value of that market's index has declined at least 20%.This may be a naive question, but are there metrics for defining whether a particular bear market is over?For example, does the market which has been in bear mode need to rise x% over z period of time to indicate that it is no longer in bear mode? Or is there a measure of investor confidence that, when it has passed some historical threshold, indicates that the market has moved out of "bear" mode?bill2975
