“We are 12 percent away from the all-time record highs, so now is a great time to focus and rethink strategies and be mindful of risk,” Spiropoulos told CNBC.

“With volatility being so low, now is not a time to be complacent.”

Spiropoulos also noted that there have been parabolic moves in a “lot of sectors.”

“And if they do anything even dumber in Washington like fool with the debt ceiling or anything like that, we could be fairly volatile.”
