- The S&P 500 could surge 30% from Monday’s close to 4,600 in a bull market cycle that extends into 2022, according to a technical analysis note from Fundstrat.
- The cycle backdrop for stocks remains bullish and is still improving, market breadth is expanding, and the laggards are bottoming, the note highlighted.
- “We would encourage investors to keep in mind the improving longer-term cycle backdrop underway that should support equities well into 2021,” Fundstrat said.

The stock market should continue its run for at least another two years, according to a technical analysis note from Fundstrat sent to clients on Tuesday.
Specifically, monthly cycle indicators point to a continued uptrend that is supportive of the S&P 500 rising to 4,400 to 4,600, representing potential upside of 25% to 30% from Monday’s close, respectively.
“Our long-term monthly quadrant balance oscillator, tracking 2-4 year market cycles, continues to build positively from oversold levels signaling the current cycle likely has room to run into 2022,” Fundstrat analyst Rob Sluymer said.
The percentage of stocks in the S&P 500 with rising monthly momentum continues to rise from its COVID-19 low in March, and has plenty of upside left. This supports Fundstrat’s view that a new four-year cycle bull market “is still in the early stages of developing,” the note said.
On top of that, other bullish technical indicators are building a more supportive picture for stocks longer term.
