Jim Cramer said with U.S. hiring on the rise, along with commercial construction and the rebuilding of U.S. company inventories, the "USA trade" is one that will likely be with us for some time to come. With the Chinese economy still slowing, stocks like BHP Billiton (BHP), the Australian mining company that supplies China with tons of coal, saw its shares slump, taking mining equipment maker Joy Global (JOY) down with it. Steelmaker Nucor (NUE) also saw its shares shed $1 a share. Likewise with engine maker Cummins (CMI), which also has Chinese exposure. Meanwhile in the U.S., Cramer said regional banks like SunTrust Banks (STI) or banking giant Wells Fargo (WFC), saw no such decline. American restaurants like Panera Bread (PNRA) and Darden Restaurants (DRI) saw shares rally nicely Tuesday. Cramer was also still bullish on the home improvement stocks, mainly Home Depot (HD) and rival Lowes (LOW), as well as American retailers like Ross Stores (ROST) and Amazon.com (AMZN). OFF THE CHARTS: Cramer and colleague Mark Sebastian over the chart of CBOE Volatility Index (VIX), more commonly known as "the VIX." The VIX is often seen as a fear index for the markets, denoting investor confidence. The VIX currently trades at $15.58, well below its historic average of $20. According to Sebastian's assessment, the VIX moves in stages averaging around five years. Our latest period of volatility, from 2008 through 2012, is nearing a close, and we should once again enjoy several years of stability and growth. Cramer concurred. EXECUTIVE DECISION: Cramer spoke with Joseph Carrabba, chairman, president and CEO of Cliffs Natural Resources (CLF), a mining company that recently raised its dividend to 3.5% and left its growth outlook unchanged, despite bearish comments from its rivals regarding slowing growth in China. Cramer said that investors looking for yield and growth, as well as exposure to both China and the red-hot U.S. market, need to consider Cliffs Natural Resources. Cramer also sat down with Don Sinclair, president and CEO of Western Gas Partners (WES), an oil and natural gas master limited partnership that offers both a 14% growth rate and a 4% dividend yield. Cramer said he likes what Sinclair has done for shareholders and continued to recommend the stock. NO HUDDLE OFFENSE: Cramer said investors are already up 34% in Lions Gate Entertainment (LGF) based on his recommendation, but with speculation running rampant that the company could have a colossal flop on their hands, this stock may not be for the squeamish investor. Cramer said he would continue to own Lion's Gate for the long-term and not worry about how big or small opening weekend for "The Hunger Games" turns out to be.

14:30 EDTROSTRoss Stores technical comments ahead of earnings news
The shares are trading close to life highs ahead of earnings. The trend has become somewhat parabolic which could mean a harder landing if there were to be a negative surprise. First support on the downside would be the 30-day moving average at $53.27. If there is a breakdown below that support, next levels to watch as potential downside objectives would be at $50.50 and $48.61. A move down to the latter level or lower would confirm a topping action in shares. If the news is a bullish surprise, the only resistance level remaining on the chart is the life high at $56.68. A breakout above that high would leave open a run to $60. That could leave shares further extended technically, which may not be sustainable over the longer-term.
13:18 EDTAMZNAmazon.com falls, levels to watch
The shares are down 2.8% at time of writing to $517.99. The last established support level before the large bullish gap from last earnings is at $513.06. If that level is taken out on the downside, a gam fill will begin. And the chart will be left with a blow-off top formation. Resistance is at $522.62.

05:36 EDTLINELegacy Reserves downgraded to Neutral from Buy at UBS
UBS downgraded Legacy Reserve (LGCY) to Neutral after after stress testing upstream MLPs to reflect scenarios in which oil remains depressed and recovery is limited. The firm expects MLPs that are better capitalized, well hedged and less levered to crude oil to outperform. It lowered its price target for shares to $5.50 from $14. UBS coupled the downgrade with an upgrade of Mid-Con Energy (MCEP) to Buy. Other Buy-rated upstream MLPs at the firm are Vanguard Natural (VNR), Memorial Production (MEMP) and Eagle Rock Energy (EROC). Sell-rated names are LINN Energy (LINE) and LinnCo (LNCO).
