Quero escrever este post para demonstrar como funciona a especulação. O mercado é movido pelas massas, mas sinceramente, muita das vezes, não existe muito fundamento em um forte movimento. Algumas vezes nada de novo acontece, mas o mercado insiste em se mover da maneira desejada. Entendam que as redes mundiais são pagas para te informar a razão da queda ou alta do mercado naquele dia. Sinceramente, não faço a menor questão de saber o motivo relatado por eles, simplesmente sigo meu sistema e não olho para os lados, e sugiro o mesmo a vocês. É o que vamos incentivar em nossa nova empresa, a EliteInvest, que estará no ar em breve. Enfim, queremos que o investidor atue por conta própria e tome individualmente, e conscientemente suas decisões. Veja, hoje tivemos uma forte queda pelo temor de nacinalização do sistema bancário amercicano. Porém, hoje mais a tarde, o próprio Tesouro e a Casa Branca disseram:
"DEIXE-ME ASSEGURAR N.O.V.A.M.E.N.T.E. DA MELHOR FORMA QUE POSSO: ESTA ADMINISTRAÇÃO ACREDITA FORTEMENTE QUE O SISTEMA BANCÁRIO PRIVADO É O MELHOR, ASSEGURAMOS QUE ELE É REGULADO O SUFICIENTE PELO GOVERNO. ESSA ERA NOSSA CRENÇA POR MUITO TEMPO E CONTINUA SENDO"
ENFIM, ESTE É UM POST PARA REFLEXÃO.......

The White House and Treasury Department late Friday sought to shoot down persistent rumors Citibank and Bank of America are about to become wholly owned subsidiaries of Uncle Sam.
The White House said it strongly believed in a privately held bank system, after rumors that the U.S. government could nationalize banks saw shares in Bank of America [BAC 3.79 -0.14 (-3.56%) ] and Citigroup [C 1.95 -0.56 (-22.35%) ] plummet to shares fall to fresh lows.
"Let me reassure as best I can on banks," White House spokesman Robert Gibbs told a news conference.
"This administration continues to strongly believe that a privately held banking system is the correct way to go, ensuring they are regulated sufficiently by this government. That's been our belief for quite some time and we continue to have that."
The White House spokesman's comments helped lift U.S. stocks from their lows of the day, traders said. The Nasdaq Composite index briefly turned positive, and the Dow Jones industrial average and Standard & Poor's 500 index both cut deep losses.
Separately, Treasury spokesman Isaac Baker said in a prepared statement that there are rumors in the market, but they should not be regarded as an indication of the administration's policy.
"As Secretary (Timothy) Geithner has said, we will preserve a financial system that is owned and managed by the private sector," Baker said.
Earlier Friday, executives at both Citigroup and Bank of America both said they are not in danger of nationalization. But the comments did little to soothe markets.
BofA CEO Ken Lewis attributed speculation about the government taking over his institution to a "lack of understanding" regarding the company's operations.
"Our company continues to be profi ," Lewis said in a statement. "We see no reason why a company that is profi with strong levels of capital and liquidity and that continues to lend actively should be considered for nationalization.
Investors dumped shares in droves Friday, sending shares tumbling about 20 percent. The stocks had been weak, but sunk lower after statements from Sen. Christopher Dodd indicating that while the government would prefer to avoid it, nationalizing some banks was a possibility.
Still, Lewis held resolute about his bank's position.
"Speculation about nationalization is based on a lack of understanding of our bank's financial position as well as a lack of appreciation for the adverse ramifications for our customers and the economy," he said.
Meanwhile, two sources close to Citi said the bank has not held talks with the U.S. government about nationalization.
The U.S. Treasury has not disclosed much more to Citigroup than it has to the broader public about its plans for the banking sector, the people said.
