Bear Raid


Full Definition of Bear Raid


A trader’s attempt to force down the price of a particular security by heavy selling or short selling. In the case of short selling, the trader then makes a profit by buying the stock cheaply to cover the short position. Bear raids are often carried out by large groups of traders together, since an individual trader might not have a large enough trade to influence market price significantly. This practice is not allowed under SEC regulations.
