'Fast Money' Recap: Volatility Knocking

Most of the crew sees more bumpiness ahead.

The crew on CNBC's "Fast Money" show Tuesday tangled with whether the stock market has finally seen the worst, or whether it's just resting before the next decline.

Pete Najarian said volatility is starting to subside and there's now a great chance for the


to sit on the sideline. Jeff Macke said to buy the

CBOE Volatility Index


, as this is just the calm before the storm.

Constance Hunter said the yen rallying means the carry trade is still under pressure; she'd also buy the VIX.

Najarian believes the credit worries are now priced into the market and he'd be a buyer of stocks like

Crude oil fell below $70 after the hurricane missed key gulf oil platforms. Guy Adami believes oil is getting cheap at these levels as hedge funds have had to liquidate energy stocks recently.

Tech stocks were again some of the strongest performers on Tuesday. Najarian would be a buyer of

Research In Motion



(RealMoney Take: Dan Fitzpatrick recently said, "EMC has been in a steep uptrend for the past year. A strong on-balance volume indicator (a gauge of accumulation vs. distribution) increases the likelihood that this latest pullback is a function of profit-taking rather than an outright rejection of the uptrend."

Fed Trade

As Goes Target Goes America?

Tossing out economic data, with stores in 47 out of 50 states and $150 million worth of goods sold per day -- is Target the best indicator for economic behavior in America? Macke said Target's earnings looked just fine and the numbers showed the consumer isn't dead.

Is The Energy Trade Over?

With crude oil falling below $70 a barrel Tuesday, is the great bull market in energy finally over? Najarian believes energy stocks are going down more and the put buying on the

Energy SPDR

(XLE) - Get Free Report

and the

Oil Service Holdrs Trust

reconfirms his thinking. Najarian also thinks

is going lower.

However, Najarian sees falling oil prices as good for the airline stocks. Adami says one bad thing that could happen is if another major storm actually hits the gulf this time -- that would take crude up to $80. Adami would be a buyer of Exxon on dips and he would buy
