Etymology of the terms Bull Market and Bear Market

I know a Latvian philologist. She looks like Marina Orlova, the YouTube sensation (I seem to recall one of Ms. Orlova's videos getting two million hits.) I like it when she teaches me words.

Orlova's "Hot for Words" website and YouTube channel receive at least five million hits per month. I figured she peaked last July. Thursday she was #1 and #2 on GoogleTrends. What do I know?
[that's a lot of teenage boys tuning in to philology -ed.]
Here she is talking my lingo.
