This article assesses the risk within the bull and bear market. This article presents research which seeks to extend the market models of Professors F.J. Fabozzi and J.C. Francis to include an analysis of the variation of returns of securities and portfolios in fluctuating markets. This research divides the total variation of the portfolio returns into two parts: the variation when the market is performing well and when it is underperforming. The researchers used a single-index market model to tabulate the returns.
