Dead Cat Bounce

1. trading

A slight price recovery during a falling market. After an asset's value drops 10-15%, it will often recover some of that (~5%), only to continue it's drop in value. This slight recovery - or bounce of price - is known morbidly as a dead cat bounce.

The swings can also be much larger for volatile assets, sometimes dropping ~50-60%, and recovering by 40-50% before dropping again. Sometimes dead cats can bounce multiple times.
