By Roberto PedoneWINDERMERE, Fla. ( Stockpickr) -- According to Jim Cramer, the old playbook is obsolete. In a July 1 blog post, he said the market has thrown out a bunch of conventions in the last few months. He explained that the market won't be seeing a big bump up from new money at the first of the quarter. Cramer said nobody is looking for a summer rally anymore. He pointed out that unlike last year, there was no end-of-the-quarter markup either. Cramer also said we no longer expect to see anything positive out of Congress or from the president. The market has also lost any positive influence from the Fed. He said the Fed just keeps firing the same gun. Cramer thinks the market will continue to trade lower to where the estimates for most companies are a given. Or investors will realize they have to be patient and wait for yields to get ridiculous an safe and the growth obvious for his CANDIES stocks. Recently, Cramer found opportunity in his CANDIES stocks, safe haven stocks his "kid-friendly" basket of stocks. Here are some Cramer highlights from over the past week as aggregated from his "Mad Money" TV show, the "Stop Trading!" segment on CNBC and his RealMoney blog posts (these blog posts might require a RealMoney subscription).
