Time To Switch to Cash: Elliott Wave's Robert Prechter

Monday, 17 Aug 2009 | 10:41 PM ET

In late February, we had long-time bear Robert Prechter, Founder & CEO of Elliott Wave International on the"Closing Bell," where he predicted a sharp rally. Prechter has been studying the charts for the past 30-years. That's a pretty bullish call for the perma-bear!

Perma-Bear's Perspective
Why it's time to be bearish again, with Robert Prechter, Elliott Wave International founder & CEO and CNBC's Maria Bartiromo.

Since March 9th, the S&P 500 has seen one of the fastest upside moves ever. According to Prechter's latest Elliott Wave Theorist, that 50% gain in five months carried the index to the lower end of his target zone of 1,000-1,100.

Now, he's turning bearish again. His biggest call: the dollar is forming a major bottom and starting a multi-year advance.

Prechter also says that the potential for the dollar's bottom is an important thesis for deflation. Another bold prediction: Prechter is calling for the next wave of deflation!

All of this just another bearish signal for stocks and he's recommending investors switch to cash.
