Since hitting its February low, the S&P 500 has rallied 15 percent and come within 2 percent of its all-time highs. But according to one market watcher, the top could be in for the year, if history is any guide.

Technical analyst John Kosar said that from a seasonal standpoint, Friday marks the end of peak week for stocks in the second quarter.

“Since 1957 we have April being the strongest month of the year for the S&P 500, and on average it has closed 1.5 percent higher on the month since that time,” Kosar said Thursday on CNBC’s “Futures Now.” The S&P 500 is currently up 1.6 percent this month. “That tells me that we’ve already gone, seasonally, as high as we should,” he said.
