    Three signs we're close to a market top, according to Mark Hulbert: 1) A bull market's best returns typically come right before it dies, with the average bull gaining 21% in the year before topping. The SPY is currently up 23% Y/Y. 2) Riskiest stocks do best ahead of tops, and growth stocks have trumped value stocks by triple the historical norm in the last year. 3) Contrary to expectations, a nosebleed level of a P/E ratio is not a necessary condition for a market top.

    The stock market's (VTI, SPY, DIA) in for a rough summer, says Guggenheim's Scott Minerd as his favorite indicator - the advance/decline line - dropped more than the indices during June's decline, suggesting something bigger coming soon. The action is very similar to what we saw in 2007, he says. The deteriorating technical picture combined with worrying signs for the global economy makes this a rally to sell, not buy.

    "We still haven't had the capitulation phase, we still have negative attitudes," says Laszlo Birinyi, arguing the market (SPY, QQQ, DIA) is headed higher. There's no better indicator than money flows, he says, and it's a lot more than the Fed putting money into the market. HIs year-end target S&P target of 1,700 is just a few points away, so what then? "This is a long trip and people want to know when are we going to get to L.A., and I'm saying let's get to Chicago first."

    BAML hikes its year-end S&P (SPY) target to 1,750, with the team noting a strict medium-term fundamental/valuation analysis calls for just a 1,720 target. Experience shows, however, that tactical, technical, and sentiment models need also be incorporated. Adding those in boosts the gauge to 1,750 compared to the current price of 1,682.

    Short interest on S&P 500 (SPY) stocks fell to just 2.3% of outstanding shares last week, a 6-year low according to Markit. PNC's Bill Stone says short are so accustomed to losing money, they're wary of stepping in. Another interpretation may be the shorts - having banked some coin - covered their bets.

    The recent drawdown in the S&P 500 (SPY) is a minor one compared to historical norms, says Goldman in a research note today. While reiterating its view of a 1,750 closing level this year for the index, the team expects there could be another 3-5% down in this current move.

    Technicians are eying the S&P's (SPY -1.5%) breach today of its 50-day moving average. The 50-day line has held a number of times this year, putting chart-watchers in awe, writes Tomi Kilgore, but the unwritten rule says the more times a level is tested the more likely it is to break.

    Bond prices (TLT -0.7%) slip following the more upbeat assessment of the economy from the FOMC. Higher growth and lower unemployment projections spell maybe a quicker schedule for tapering and eventual tightening, but materially lower inflation expectations say the opposite. Stocks give up a bit of ground as well, the S&P 500 (SPY -0.3%). The dollar (UUP +0.3%) pops higher across the board.

    "Sell in May and go into cyclicals," says Ralph Acampora after the last month. He reminds of an old adage saying sectors going down the least during a selloff become the new market leaders. During SPY's 5.2% decline from May 22-June 6, the best performers were Tech (XLK) and Industrials (XLI). The worst were Telecommunications (IYZ) and Utilities (XLU). This "rolling rotation" between sectors is necessary, he says, to give further life to the secular bull market begun in March 2009.
