video Webcast Tuesday.
The market fell on two pillars -- oil and tech -- Cramer told Aaron Task, the host of Wall Street Confidential.
While Cramer seemed less concerned with tech because it has been up and because a lot of people feel that December is the time to take profits in this sector, he said that "it's almost as if when oil goes down the market looks bad."
The market witnessed

In addition, a lot of people were betting that

wasn't going to perform well, and it turned out to be a good call, he said.
Moving on, Cramer said "the rollover in retail" was surprising to him because the products are "hot." However, the retailers aren't making any money, he said.
Task commented on how
