Cramer: Amazon should run the stock market

On a day like Friday when the averages were hammered, Jim Cramer thinks the stock market should be run like Amazon. It would make a heck of a lot more sense to him and do a better job than whatever brought stocks down Friday.

Right now the market seems automated to Cramer, anyways. Every time the price of crude oil drops, the S&P 500 also plunges. Some think that computer programs have been correlated to automatically unleash selling in the S&P every time crude goes down.

Why would the stock market run better on Amazon?

"Because it would become accessible to everyone," the "Mad Money" host said.





Cramer envisioned a system where an investor could buy a put option on oil, using Amazon Prime of course, for commission free trading and a pop up would appear that said "If you dislike oil here, you might want to buy a put option on the S&P 500."

Just like Amazon makes suggestions of items to purchase based on what customers have viewed, Cramer would like it to also interpret linkages within the stock market and act on it.

On Friday, the sellers trashed consumer packaged goods stocks like Procter & Gamble and Clorox, but somehow Kellogg wasn't beaten as badly. Cramer would like to see a little icon on the website that alerts customers that Kellogg hasn't been hit yet.

The Kellogg alert could appear under the column entitled "for those who hate Clorox", and voila, investors would be short Kellogg if they think the stock was about to sell off as well. However, Cramer continued to search for a reason on why these stocks were down because it was unclear.

"It saddens me that the market, so to speak, is doing these things and it is a very significant reason that so many hedge funds are down this year. They make these big macro correlations and they are so often very wrong," Cramer said.

That is why he would like to have an intuitive system that says something like "If you liked the movie 'Star Wars' you might like the stock of Disney." But that would just be too smart and simple for computers to control that sort of action, hence why the stock was down almost 4 percent Friday.

Cramer is officially putting a call out for Amazon to recreate the stock market. It will require horse sense, and Amazon has it. And the good news is that it won't even require delivery drones to get the job done.
