    I remember hearing about the ‘dead cat bounce’ several years ago during earlier economic difficulties . The idea was that after any sustained fall, there will be a bounce-back of some sort. This was based on the theory that even a dead cat will bounce, albeit a tiny amount, if dropped from a high enough building!
    Well what about the Spanish economic and property fall – when do people envisage a bounce back? I know that there is no clear answer – but I’d be interested to learn of peoples opinions of just how long the property price slump might last.
    My own feeling is that this problem: an amalgamation of over supply, corruption, world economic turmoil and changes in consumer patterns, probably won’t turn for at least three years.
    What do you think?

    The cat is still very well on the roof of a 100 floor house. She does not have any intention to
    jump yet.

    Wait for her to jump, hit the ground, die, then maybe bounce-back.

    Come back around 2011 and ask again.

    How, cruel you are to some thing that has nine lives. There has to be nine bounces in the price, before the rebound of a dead mass can be worked out.
