Stop Trading!: A Deep Dow Decline?

Wednesday, 2 Apr 2008 | 3:29 PM ET

Take profits while you can, Cramer told viewers during Wednesday’s Stop Trading!, because this market might be ready to snap back from yesterday’s rally.

“I really think we’re in an incredibly overbought moment here where I am concerned,” Cramer said. “The last time we were this overbought we caught a 1,500-point decline in the Dow. That’s worrisome to me. I want people...to ring the register on the hot stocks.”

As for stocks that are working right now, Cramer recommended the gold sector and oil driller Nabors , which is “very, very right.”
