Jim Cramer's market strategies

aka how he admits to manipulating SEC and markets in general.

I hope I'm not breaking any rules by letting Cramer muse about his hedge funds days, we are individual investors so his strategies would be of limited use but I think it might be of interest, especially following the whole GameStop debacle -

He is currently working extremely hard to take this video down.

"Jim Cramer's market strategies" are to keep his bombastic TV show going and get paid for it.

Well, in this particular video he pretty much admits to breaking the law.

Although not yet part of my IPS, the two strategies I've considered regarding Mr. Cramer is:

(a) Ignore him.
(b) Do the opposite of what he says and does.

Mostly it's (a).

Kramer is nothing but a huckster. Run the other way.

TL,DW;

However, if he admitted to illegal market manipulation on TV I suspect he'd have been brought up on charges, especially since this was just before the great recession started. I suspect it's just more bloviating. As I said though, I didn't watch. I can't listen to him for 10 minutes.

Better listen to his daughter.


He used to be a real TSLA bear. But his daughter convinced him that Tesla was the new Apple/Amazon-ish growth story. And he listened to her and changed his mind.


The video from OP however has helped me understand TSLA stock movements.

While I do not 'day trade', I do watch Cramer (with a "C") every evening. From time to time he offers some general market perspectives which I find helpful.

During the 2008 disaster, he kept me in the market with stunning positive results.

Cramer is a clown. I used to watch him but now when I do it is pretty much to do the opposite!

He is just noise, like running a fan while you sleep. After a while, you forget he is even talking/running.

What protects him from the law is his record, 47% correct. Flipping a coin is better in the long run. He is a one man Motley Fool!

Yes Kramer from Seinfeld is more famous for his crazy ideas.

I was just going to ask if anyone has ever kept track of his record. All though even at 47% you could still make good money if his hits are big winners and his misses aren't huge dogs.

I have known of some momentum traders who wait for his picks to,pop and then sell them short.

Apologies, I must be watching too much Seinfeld. Kramer with a "K" was definitely worth watching and Kramerica Industries had real potential. More correctly however, Cramer with a "C" is a huckster.

I'm with you. I've been investing and trading in individual stocks 25+ years and I don't think ole Cramer is all that bad.

Again, if you are looking for trade insights--or day-trade tips-- you might look elsewhere.

I find his overall, general market perspectives helpful especially during times of crisis. He peeled me off the ceiling during the '08 mess for which I (and my portfolio) are forever grateful.

Not every day, but once or twice a week--I only watch the first six minutes until "bottom line"-- he'll hit on something of value.
