NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The bears may control the game but they don't control the market, Jim Cramer told "Mad Money" viewers Tuesday. Cramer said the stocks that are getting hit the hardest, Caterpillar ( CAT), FedEx ( FDX) and Norfolk Southern ( NSC), are already behind the market since they are among the companies that blame a slowing global economy for lower earnings and expectations. Cramer said the power of positive thinking and the belief these companies will do better next year are behind the cushion keeping them from falling further. Money managers and hedge fund managers who are 90% behind the averages now need to make up that difference. Lately, the reaction to bad news has been benign, Cramer said. The markets should have fallen a lot further than they did -- but the end-of-quarter phenomenon and managers trying not to lose their shirts helped keep stocks from dropping as far as expected.
