Bullish investors should turn into shrinking violets as the stock market continues its shocking downward spiral, CNBC's "Mad Money" host Jim Cramer told Ann Curry on TODAY Monday.
In what Curry called a "dramatic statement," Cramer emphatically urged any investor who has money they may need in the next five years tied to stocks to pull their dough out.
"I thought about this all weekend," Cramer told Curry. "I do not want to say these things on TV. Whatever money you may need for the next five years, please take it out of the stock market right now, this week. I do not believe that you should risk those assets in the stock market right now."
