"I don't think the market is as overbought as it was in '87, so I don't expect a crash. But I think for the time being, the market has peaked out, and I think in the meantime, bonds, which are extremely oversold, could rebound," he said.
The S&P 500 closed at 1,502.52 Thursday. A level of 1,530 could prove to be a longer-term high, Faber said.
"What I maintained in earlier interviews is that either we have a correction now, and then we go up further or we go straight up high in July-August, from where we could crash, so I welcome a correction here," he said. "The question will be, after this correction, we have to watch the market's rebound, whether it can make a new high or not."
