Cramer's 'Mad Money' Recap: Putting Europe Into Perspective
In his "No Huddle Offense" segment, Cramer sounded off on the sharp decline in trading volumes. Does it even matter if fewer and fewer people are trading stocks, he asked? "It depends on where you sit," he concluded.
Cramer said there's no doubt the "flash crash" and the initial public offering of Facebook(FB) have greatly contributed to the disintegration of stocks as an asset class. It's no wonder many investors now think of stocks as simply a playground for high-frequency traders. Individuals feel it's reckless to own stocks.
Making matters worse, those who should care -- the brokers and exchanges -- are doing nothing to reverse the trends. There's simply no urgency to restore faith in the markets, said Cramer.
But in the end, "I don't care," said Cramer. Trading volumes don't matter as long as investors are able to buy stocks that can appreciate and make them money.
