Dead CAT Bounce


In Finance, a Dead CAT Bounce is a small, brief recovery in the price
of a declining stock. Derived from the idea that "even a dead CAT will bounce
if it falls from a great height", the phrase, which originated on Wall Street,
is also popularly applied to any case where a subject experiences
a brief resurgence during or following a severe decline.  (from Wikipedia)
