Cramer Says Fed Rate Cut to Give New Leg to Bull Market

CNBC’s Jim Cramer said Thursday that Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell’s interest rate-cut hints could spark the beginning of a “new leg to the bull” market in stocks.

“We change the inverted yield curve back to where it should be, our rates are way too high, and next thing you know we’ve got a real bull market going,” Cramer said on “Squawk Box. ” “I think that’s going to happen, a new leg to the bull.”

U.S. stocks opened higher Thursday on Wall Street after the S&P 500 on Wednesday briefly broke above 3,000 for the first time ever before finishing just shy of another record close. The S&P 500 went back above 3,000 early Thursday.
