Is There A New Word For 'crash'?

Recommended Posts

Fionula Early on the Today programme this morning was spounting the usual VI cr*p about 'of course there won't be a 'crash' - all those doom-mongers predicting a 'crash' have been proved wrong.

Much as I hate the woman, she has a point about the past data (so far).

Is there a new word we can use, so we can make new predictions about price falls, that can't be dismissed as repetitions of old, false warnings?

And if so, what should the word be? 'Stumble'? 'Flop'? 'Trip-up'? 'Dive'?

I don't like the use of the C word either -- it means very different things to different people. Correction is a better word to describe what's happening. The International Monetary Fund use 'contraction' to describe anything more than a 14% fall in property prices. I rather like the term 'disorderly readjustment'.

How about fender bender? Sounds less harsh than crash. Needs to be pronounced carefully though, otherwise you'll get all sorts of unwelcome attention.

How about the VI and Ea's favourite word: consolidation

A word often used by Companies that are losing money but have come up with a plan to show that the losses aren't real losses but just paper reflections of reality.

I expect a "sharp slide" in 2006,

which may or may not morph into a "CRASH".

Anyway, "At best, Property will provide boring returns for the Bulls".

GOLD will be the place to be.

Historically speaking, has gold tended to move in the same direction as house prices or does it go in the opposite direction?

Seems that the current frenzy to get into gold follows months of increasingly bad international press on house prices. IF money is not pouring into houses and its not going into stocks where else can it go for a fast buck? Problem with gold, IMHO, is that it can "turn on a dime" and head in the opposite direction leaving little time to get off the bandwagon.
