NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Most bank stocks showed weakness Thursday, following a mixed batch of economic reports and the Federal Reserve's announcements of two key dates in March for large-cap bank stocks investors.
The broad indices ended with moderate declines, following a new record for the S&P 500
Jim Cramer in an article on Real Money discussed the broad market's pop on Monday following followed the weekend news of the removal of Ukraine President Viktor Yanukovych -- considered by many to be a thumb in the eye of Russian President Vladamir Putin.
Cramer wrote that "waiting this one out" might be best:
You should never buy on the way up because you think you have to. You buy on the way down because you think you have to.
That's called discipline.
So you wait. During this period, individual stocks have come unglued when they shouldn't have. They are giving you chances, and not all of the chances are bogus.
