Cramer reminded viewers that 85% of stocks benefit from lower oil prices and with the price of crude continuing to fall thanks to higher-margin requirements, the trajectory for stocks can only be higher.He said every retailer will soon have more customers walking in their doors with more money in their pockets to spend. Every restaurant will have more patrons. Every delivery truck will soon see some relief, and every company that turns oil into plastics will as well. So where does that leave stocks? Cramer said that sadly, the market is being controlled at the moment by institutional investors that are being forced to sell just about everything in order to cover their commodity speculation losses. Thus everything is being sold, in unison and en mass. But Cramer said that knowing the market's trajectory is one of the most important factors in predicting stock prices, and those investors who think "I missed the move," are wrong. He said not only are retailers and restaurants about to head higher, but with Obama's announcement of more oil drilling, stocks like Halliburton (HAL) and Schlumberger (SLB) will be heading higher too. Stocks may seem like a tainted asset class, said Cramer, but investors should be prepared to pay a lot less at the pump and for stocks in the days and weeks ahead.
