I agree with you completely. That is exactly what I did. I covered my short based on losses and went long instead. Only a fool will fight with the big banks and the Fed. Banks have already swore the past few weeks that they will do whatever it takes to protect this financial investment market along with the strong commitment and speech from Benanke that he will do whatever it takes to protect the dollars and the U.S. financial market. All the banks have made so much money in the last 5 years from the housing market that although they will face to lose some big amount of money, but I have been told that it is just a drop in the bucket for them. The big guys will stay and have a big come back again. I finally learned and told myself that now in fact is the best time to get into some investment of some valuable companies and make some serious money in the future when finally this crisis goes away. Trust me, the crisis will go away. U.S. will stand again.
