NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- On Jim Cramer's Tuesday Stop Trading! segment on CNBC, Cramer said that the "waffling" of Jean-Claude Trichet, president of the European Central Bank, is what's making the markets nervous right now.

Cramer said he thinks that Trichet needs to tell the world that European Union leaders will fix Europe's debt crisis, "by any means necessary," given that the global economy is currently in a "by any means necessary" situation.

"I'm looking for gigantic quantitative easing," Cramer said.

Cramer said he's been unimpressed with EU leaders' handling of the debt mess and wonders where German chancellor Angela Merkel has been throughout the crisis.

So what are some of Cramer's top picks in this volatile market?

IBM

Verizon
