According to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, a bear market occurs when a broad market index falls by 20 percent or more over a period of at least a two months and the outlook is generally pessimistic. The average length of a bear market is 367 days, and they are usually accompanied by recessions—periods when the economy shrinks and unemployment rates soar.

A bear market is defined by falling securities prices that cause

people to continue to sell because they fear a loss. Generally, a

loss of 20 percent or more in two months is considered the

beginning of a bear market.

Investing in bonds is a safer option when the economy is dipping. Bonds give a fixed rate of income up to the maturity period. During this phase, stocks lose their value and, the phase is called the bear market.
