Consumer confidence is currently at levels not seen since the Dot Com bubble days of the late 1990’s and early 2000’s. Consumer confidence has historically peaked toward the end of an economic cycle.

“We’re still quite bullish of the consumer, but I’m quite concerned it’s less strong from its cyclical peak of February,” McCullough says in the clip above.
“A lot has happened in the world since February and a lot is going to continue to happen, but I would not be betting on a breakout to a higher high.”
