Asset Bulge (in finance)

What does Asset Bulge (in finance) mean?

Bulge, a word similar to bubble, is used to indicate an abnormal increase in price of an asset class. The price increases and demand increases in anticipation of further price-increase in near term. Everybody wants to buy as quickly as possible. This further jacks up asset value artificially. Like bubble in real life, bulge cannot sustain for long. It is short-lived. And suddenly the bubble bursts and price falls drastically, putting investors to a big loss.
