Expect an April Correction: Technician
The recent run-up in stocks could be reversing soon, Drexel Hamilton Technician Barry Sine said Monday.
"I don't think that this market has been driven by economic fundamentals or earnings. I think it's been driven more by sentiment," he said.
"Look at the earnings we saw last week: Caterpillar, Cintas, Oracle, FedEx. When we see earnings, the stocks decline."
On CNBC's "Fast Money," he said that it was time to expect a selloff in April, maybe earlier.
The S&P 500, which rose to within 1 percent from an all-time high before pulling back, closed down 5 points for the day at 1,551.69.
Sine said that "somewhere below the 1,400 level" in the S&P would be a "reasonable target" for the summer.
"Come back in the fall and buy equities then," he added.
