Falling knife

It is basically a stock or a company that has a declining financial standing. Most of them can recoup but some would keep falling. When the market in general is declining and an investor wants to buy in into the resulting dip, it is called catching a falling knife. This practice is dangerous as the downward momentum is totally against the investor's assumed position.
