Friday's run in

Nucor

(NUE) - Get Report

is a good "tell" for the broader market and suggests the economic cycle isn't overextended, Jim Cramer said on

CNBC's

"Stop Trading!" segment Friday.

The fact that "copper is up and gold is down" shows that people still believe in growth with low inflation. It's bullish, Cramer said.

Cramer praised the

Nasdaq

I:IXIC

for its unsolicited $4.2 billion bid for the London Stock Exchange and said the

New York Stock Exchange

(NYX)

should be looking at something similar. He said other exchanges like the

Chicago Mercantile

(CME) - Get Report

and

CBOT

(BOT)

also need to find a way to grow.

Cramer said

(SHRP)

has been victimized by a series of articles saying its best product, the Ionic Breeze, "doesn't do anything."

"This is a once hot stock that isn't so hot anymore," Cramer said. He advised staying away from retail.
