I think today was a perfect
example of a "dead cat bounce".

From wikipedia:

"In finance, a dead cat bounce is a small,
brief recovery in the price of a declining stock.

[1] Derived from the idea that
"even a dead cat will bounce if it falls from a great height",

[2] 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."
