Fast Money Recap: The Bulls Are Running

Dennis Gartman and Charlie Gasparino joins the crew for Fed day.

The Fed's big 50 point cut sparked stocks Tuesday, and the crew at CNBC's "Fast Money" discussed why the bulls are running -- and in particular, what it means for financial stocks.

Pete Najarian proposes that Tuesday's action was all about the financials. As example, he points to the

Financial Select Sector SPDR

(XLF) - Get Financial Select Sector SPDR Report

call options, where he saw a ton of volume. Jeff Macke advises that you can't be short financials now.

Guy Adami continues to like financials, especially after

Lehman Brothers


blew out the numbers. He feels that

Goldman Sachs

will kill the numbers when they report. (

All Clear on Wall Street?

Did the Fed rate cut on Tuesday signal all is now clear for Wall Street and the credit problems?


Charlie Gasparino joined the crew to discuss if the brokers are a buy now. Gasparino feels confident about most of the brokers except

Bear Stearns


. He maintains that Bear is the least diversified and is too tied to the credit markets.

However, if you do buy Bear, you only buy it for a possible takeover. Bear is the wild card in the broker sector for Najarian. Gasparino thinks the worst is over for Lehman and that Goldman will benefit the most from trading and a rebound in M&A activity. Macke says he is now bullish on the brokers.

Oil Thanks the Fed

Crude oil hit another record touching $81.51 and gold traded to $735, its highest level in 27 years. Dennis Gartman, publisher of

The Gartman Letter,

joined the show to comment on the action in commodities. The Fed decision shocked Gartman and he indicated that the stock market would continue to climb higher.

The Fed decision makes it clear to Gartman that the Fed isn't fretting inflation, so gold and oil will continue to go higher. Gartman's best trade ideas are

and wheat.

Rate Cut Raises the Roof

The equity markets problems all began with concerns of poor lending practices in the housing market. Was the big rate cut on Tuesday a signal from Ben Bernanke that he will not let housing blow up?

Adami declares that housing stocks are back for a trade. He likes

Global Notes

Emerging markets like China and Brazil soared on the rate cut. Tim Seymour, Principal at Red Star Asset Management, joined the crew to discuss the emerging markets. Seymour likes gold and
