The bull market in stocks has years of runway remaining. 

"This market's in a secular bull market. We have 10 years to the upside," Mary Ann Bartels, chief investment officer of portfolio solutions at Bank of America Merrill Lynch said during TheStreet's August Trading Strategies roundtable.

However, Bartels cautioned that Wall Street won't see a straight shot upward.

"Will we get bear markets? Absolutely," she said. "But the question [will be]: 'Is it a bear market or is it just a correction?' I can honestly say, fundamentally and technically, there is no sign of a bear market that's about to happen here."
