Jim Cramer explains why he expects a short-term rebound in U.S. equities.

He wants central bank to be more aggressive in the fight against inflation.

The benchmark S&P 500 index slid another 2.0% to a new low on Friday.

U.S. equities are down another 2.0% on Friday, but the Mad Money host says investors should brace for a “powerful” bear market rally in the coming weeks.

Why does Cramer expect a short-term rebound?

According to Jim Cramer, a technical indicator suggests the S&P 500 index around 3,800 level could be up for a short-term rebound. This morning on CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street”, he said:

The advance-decline is up this week. That has not happened in a very long time. So, you have A/D up while averages are down, which is historically the beginning of what could be a very powerful move. This is pretty much day one of a new cycle today.

Amidst the macro headwinds, including inflation and the Ukraine war, Cramer sees defence and the healthcare space as a relatively safe bet for investors at present.

Cramer wants to the Fed to be more aggressive

The influential investor also called for the U.S. Federal Reserve to be more aggressive in its battle against inflation that slid marginally but still stood at a near 40-year high of 8.30% in April. Cramer noted:

When Target and Walmart reported, I was aghast. The amount of inflation in the system that they had to eat is extraordinary. It’s in every aisle. We have to break it, and we have to break it now.

He’s convinced the Wall Street indices are in turmoil right now because the market doesn’t believe the central bank is doing enough to fight inflation. Earlier this week, Fed Chair Jay Powell signalled a 75-bps increase wasn’t being actively considered.
