Next 10 Days Could Signal S&P 2012 High: Pro

The stock market could top out for the year in the next 10 to 12 trading days, technician Tom DeMark said Monday on CNBC.

On "Fast Money," he said that he was looking for the S&P 500 to hit 1,478.03 to 1,485.33, which would signal a top for 2012.

"The overall trend of the market is definitely down, and we're going to see a very long, extended decline. We made the highs for the year," he said.

"With the environment we're in, we can see this spike up. I don't know if it's going to be a catalyst such as the debate, possibly the election, but you'll see a sharp move upside, according to our work," he added. "We're operating against a trend, which we don't like to do."
