Berkowitz and Cramer have been debating what to do all morning. Now they are waiting to see who caves first.
Publish date:

One benchmark worth watching is Europe. Those markets are all down 2 to 3%. As we precipitated this decline, I can't get comfort yet.

We have put a couple of million to work in tech. Down 200, we will be more aggressive. But our buys have been desultory.

and I have been in an intense debate all morning. I have been more inclined to put a lot more cash to work, but Jeff says, what the heck, let's wait until we have the bonds bottoming. When we are at loggerheads, we tend to do nothing until one of us caves.

No one is caving yet.

Betcha he caves first.
