Default FA CDEF Task 2

Question to passers, did anyone define what optimistic market and adverse market is? It's not required, but to justify the asset mixes, maybe it's worthwhile?

Any insight is much appreciated!

Personally I just wrote something like "In an optimistic market we can expect that... therefore...", which did not directly define what it means but did describe the implication of it

i followed the sample format in showing a mix for target, optimistic, and adverse markets. since they already provided a sample, i didn't feel the need to define what optimistic and adverse are, but i justified my portfolio mixes (in an optimistic market, you can invest more in equity for higher return and take on a little more risk, blah blah).
