Cow


Used to refer to optimistic investors who believe that prices will continue to go up.

In the Bull market, investors will feel interested in the market, they are willing to enter the market hoping to make a profit.

A Bull market is often associated with a healthy economy. The way the bull market is named is based on the way it attacks - raising its horn and moving forward.

Bear


Used to refer to pessimistic investors who believe that prices will go down.

In contrast to the Bull market, the Bear market is where investors have negative sentiment, causing them to flee the market, and this will sometimes push the market down even further.

A Bear market is often associated with a weak economy. The way the bear market is named is based on the way it attacks - slams its claws down on its victim.

Rabbit


People who exercise positions in an extremely short amount of time.

It is also easy to imagine the reason why people use the image of a rabbit to characterize this type of trader, right?

This type of investor can avoid the risk overnight or long term because they only seize the opportunity to make quick profits during the day. Their typical transaction timeframes are just a few minutes.

Turtle


Buy slowly, sell slowly, the long-term view - these are the "keywords" representing the "turtle" investor.

They are not interested in immediate price action but more about the end-of-day or weekly results. In contrast to the Rabbit, the Tortoise faction will try to earn as much as possible from the least number of trading

Pig


Impatience, greed, emotion and are the biggest losers in the market.

This is the type of trader who likes to trade regularly with great risks and very often disregards strategic principles. Instead of trading with profits, "pigs" just like to mess with tips on making money quickly (short time period, high-profit target and don't know when to exit), so the end is of the method is often counterproductive.

Chicken


The lowest risk-taking, fearful investors will be represented by the image of a chicken.

Contrary to the Pigs, the Chicken is very worried about losing money, so they avoid doing too large transactions and often choose safe (risk-free) instruments such as government bonds or bank deposits.

Lamb


They follow the crowd and are not interested in developing their investment strategies.

This type of trader often misses out on meaningful market moves because they are often the last "sheep" in the herd of lumbering behind.

The reason for the sheep image, you probably already know what ... have you ever seen a sheep standing alone? And as long as one bird moves, the whole flock will follow, no matter what is going on. That is also the characteristic of crowd trading traders.

Deer


They go looking for opportunities, not on the Bulls, nor on the Bear side. Or rather, they are the short-term speculators and do not care much about the situation.

They will move in and out of positions quickly and try to profit from short-term market movements.

Whale


These are extremely large investors who can move the market.

This mascot represents traders who motivate the market, attracting many followers, because it is believed that profits can increase when trading with whales.

This term generally applies to hedge funds, banks, and large players such as corporations. The wealthy individual investors are named "sharks".

Whales or sharks also imply that only investors have a very large capital, but the biggest is still whales, and then comes the sharks!

Epilogue

In a lethal and highly competitive world like trading, each mascot has its own reason for existence.
