The FTSE-100 index is "generally overbought," Steven Mayne, head of research at Falcon Securities said Tuesday, adding that "is does seem like a small, little pullback is needed." But he does see the UK index rising to 5,000 points before the year is over.
He voiced concern that the market may be overextended and cautions investors that a pullback may be on the horizon.
Mayne therefore suggests not adding "aggressively" to long positions, and instead thinks investors should "take a couple of chips off the table here and just let the market sort itself out over the short-term."
"Just because we think the market's overbought doesn't mean there's not value out there," Mayne told CNBC.
