When CNBC's Jim Cramer talks about the "era of good feelings," he's not referencing the U.S. history books.
"No, I'm talking about this week of Thanksgiving, where the buyers pay up and the sellers walk away," the "Mad Money" host said. "It's almost as if there's a selling ban."
Cramer found more than a few examples of this in Tuesday's market layout. He said the lapse in selling is typically a "Thanksgiving phenomenon," but given the state of the bull market, even Cramer wasn't sure when it would end.
"Maybe investors have simply decided they should pay more for the same earnings numbers, giving us the gift of multiple expansion," he said. "I've got an idea: if you really are scared of this market like so many are, if you truly believe there will be a crash or something terrible is out there — a view I do not subscribe to — then feel free to use the era of good feelings to lighten up. Nobody ever got hurt selling into strength."
