The S&P 500 Could Soar To 1,500 Before Collapsing

In the near term, I believe that markets can still rally somewhat for the simple reason that in every market, you have a few strong stocks, and they are breaking out on the upside. Then, you have a lot of stocks that are down 40 or 50 percent and are very oversold, so they can also rebound… 
I think that we may still rally somewhat into August – mid-August, end of August – and then probably we’ll have a tougher second half. In other words, September, October, and November could be somewhat tougher months… 

The high was this year on April 4 at 1422. I think it’s possible, based on the few stocks that are strong and the rebound candidates, that we will exceed that high – maybe move to 1450 or even 1500. 

“I think these lows could be exceeded and I think it may be October or November – or after the U.S. election – we could essentially have a decline of around 20 percent in the market.”

Ed Note: Seasonality studies from also seem to support Marc Faber’s take:
