Cramer: No Real Bottom until European Resolution
CNBC.com | September 12, 2011 | 06:18 PM EDT

The market may have rallied Monday, but Cramer isn’t jumping for joy yet.

Don’t get him wrong, the “Mad Money” host is happy the day ended up. However, he’s skeptical that the gains will hold more than a couple of days.

“These reversals never seem to have much staying power, he said. “There can be no real bottom, just an emotional bounce, without some resolution to the European issues in general and to Greece, in particular.”

Monday’s late-day rally was due to a report from the Financial Times , which said Italy’s center-right government is turning to China to help pay their bills.

Cramer has long thought intervention from China was a good plan for getting Europe back on track. But part of him thinks it’s too good to be true, and that the only reason stocks rallied is because the short-sellers were afraid something positive might happen.

In any case, it’s too soon to get excited, he said.

“So we play it out. We celebrate the rally. We get ready for a couple of days of nice gains that take us toward the upper end of the range,” he said. “Then, boom, we hit the European chute and we start all over again.”
