Hi,

I have some difficulties to translate the following sentence into spanish:

"A collapse in tellurium prices strikes me as just as likely as a run on the stuff"

It is extracted from a Chemistry book in the chapter about tellurium, a chemical element.

My attemp is: Me da la impresión que un colapso en el precio del telurio es justamente lo que pasará

I am not really sure about this! Could you help me?

Thanks for all your comments!!!!! :)

    Thanks cyberpedant!!!! :)

    But I don't understand the meaning:

    A collapse in tellurium prices strikes me as just as likely as a run on the stuff"

    Me da la impresión que es igual de probable que haya un colapso en el precio del telurio como que el precio suba

    What do you think about this attempt?

    Thanks again!

    De acuerdo con cyberpedant; 'a run on something' significa que todo el mundo lo quiere comprar y su precio sube.
