NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- "The market is giving investors everything," Jim Cramer told his "Mad Money" TV show viewers Wednesday.

He said today's market was so good, investors should take a picture so they can remember this day forever. Cramer said today's markets gave investors so many ways to win and better yet, it gave it when investors were least expecting it, making it even sweeter.

So what went right today? Cramer said that Whirlpool (WHR), for one, was able to beat and raise estimates, all while most investors thought the housing market was still declining. He said that Boeing (BA) shares were able to trade higher, despite defense cutbacks in Washington. And Navistar (NAV) also ticked higher on news of its partnership with Clean Energy Fuels (CLNE).

Then of course there was the announcement of the Facebook IPO, a deal that's so hot investors are even buying up shares of the underwriters. Cramer said Facebook is the best advertising an ailing market could have and should do wonders for bringing retail investor back into the market.

In technology, Cramer admitted that Amazon.com (AMZN) disappointed, but the markets also has a surprise beat from disk drive maker Seagate (STX), which rose 21% in a single day.

Internationally, the markets received news that China's economic soft-landing is indeed happening, something that bodes well for companies levered to China like Caterpillar (CAT), Yum Brands (YUM) and Coach (COH), the latter two hitting 52-week highs today.

Put all of these factors together, said Cramer, and its easy to see why he's so excited about the possibilities.
