“I have been investing in the market for a number of years. I have had reasonable success selecting good quality stocks but always lacked access to good quality macro analysis of the market environment until I found Asbury Research.  Within minutes each week, I can quickly review Asbury Research models to determine necessary changes in my investment posture. I no longer have to spend considerable time sifting through market research and, more often, opinions from the financial press, financial cable channels, or various brokers. Asbury Research enhances my ability to manage my investment portfolio efficiently and with a solid degree of confidence because I have data to support my decisions.  I only wish that I had found Asbury Research years earlier than I did in 2022. Thank you, John.”

Asbury Research provides an easy, disciplined approach to effective investment management, saving me hours each week. No longer am I wasting time reacting to market chatter, or streaming live market updates, or attending live webcasts on market conditions and endless investment ideas.  Each day I now spend a few quick minutes reviewing the Asbury 6 Metrics, CPM (Correction Protection Model), and VIX. Those three indicators are vital in my decision on whether to invest in Stock/ETF equities or not.  When CPM is Risk Off, and Asbury 6 is overweight negative, along with a concerning VIX trend, it’s time for me to place stop orders and/or sell, take profits, and be thankful.  In summary, mitigating risk and maximizing investment opportunities are paramount. Asbury Research provides a disciplined approach based on best practice proprietary models that are aligned with my investment objectives.

“John, We are happy customers, especially this month. After losing less than half the market losses last year (2022), we are screaming ahead! We just use SPY, your weekly ETF suggestions, and your SEAF model, nothing fancy, and we are very happy with our results. I searched for years to find a service like AR before and after retirement in 2014, and never found it until I found Asbury Research. I now feel sorry for our friends who won’t listen when I say “Get AR.” Thanks!”

Individual Investor, Fort Collins, Colorado 

“I started working with Asbury Research in December 2021. In eight months, I have refined my investing processes around their research and data because it is comprehensive, clear, and concise.  Asbury Research makes the decision-making process very easy, and I make better decisions because of the tools provided on the website, which in turn makes me better equipped to manage risk.  Thank you, John and team, for making investing an efficient and easier process and experience!”

“I am a retired pharmacist, age 73.  Most of my equity investment is in an IRA and a Roth IRA.  My Roth IRA is with a brokerage firm that follows a philosophy of a balanced portfolio and a buy-and-hold strategy. I like to be hands-on, but like so many, I tend to be a more emotional investor and too often buy near highs and sell near lows. I saw you about 5 years ago on a Fidelity education program and liked what I heard.  I primarily use three of your models to invest in equity ETFs.  First, the Correction Protection Model (CPM) gives me a clear and timely “risk-on” or “risk-off” signal. Your record is much better than my emotions.  Second, I have committed a portion of my portfolio to your SEAF model (Sector ETF Asset Flows) which focuses on asset flows in the SPDR sectors and investing where the money is going.  Being in energy for the first half of 2022 was great.  Finally, my favorite is your CARP model (Cross Asset Relative Performance).  Your weekly, monthly, and quarterly tracking of popular ETF categories is easy to follow.  The model is so simple to follow and keeps me outperforming the S&P 500 index.  Each Monday morning I look at your analysis and take 10 minutes to adjust my portfolio.  The bimonthly phone conversations you offer your subscribers have really helped me fine-tune my approach.  My results are much improved (and better than what my broker is doing).Keep up the great work.”

Individual Investor, Indianapolis

I first heard of Asbury Research several years ago while attending a seminar at Fidelity Investments where they were showcasing John Kosar, Asbury’s Chief Investment Strategist.  As a scientist who is used to working with a lot of data,  I was impressed with their ability to mine information from a multitude of sources, synthesize the data and make solid interpretations concerning market direction and sector rotation.  This service has greatly improved my knowledge of the markets and has given me the confidence to make better decisions regarding my portfolio by helping me to place assets in those portions of the market which are most likely to outperform.  I highly recommend Asbury Research to individual investors who want to take charge of their financial future and truly up their game.”

“The more time I spend with your research and reflect on the impact it could have on my decision making, the increasingly thankful I am to have found your research. In the two times we have spoken, I have learned a tremendous amount and you have shortened the time I need to spend learning the models and how to use them.  I have been able to quickly see the value provided by your research and service.

Individual Investor, San Francisco

“I’ve been an Asbury client for more than 5 years and during that time the service has given me a consistent and measurable advantage in my return on investments.  I find it all useful from the Monthly Investment Compass to the Weekly Wrap-Up with the greatest benefit coming from the Asbury 6.  Its six component indexes provide a practical way to interpret gyrations in the broader market. Combined with the clear on/off signal of the Correction Protection Model (CPM), the Asbury 6 has given me a tool to recognize when to sell into a strengthening market and when to rebuild in a weak market. I’m a capable stock picker. Asbury Research has made me a more capable trader.

Individual Investor, Camas Washington

I am very pleased with your service.  It significantly helps my confidence in trying to invest during this crazy time.  The sophistication bundled with its relative simplicity is a key piece to investing that I have been looking for a long time.  I have been listening to John Kosar on the Financial Sense Newshour for years and very pleased that I tried the service.  I am retired.  My current plan is to keep this service active for the remainder of my active investing timespan.  Keep it up. You guys absolutely rock!”

“During these volatile times, I rely on Asbury Research’s Correction Protection Model (CPM) along with their charts and data analyses to guard my investments. At 70, I sleep better at night knowing that Asbury has my back.”

Individual Investor, Millersville MD

“I was searching for a comprehensive source of market insights to guide and inform my investing activity. After listening to an Investment Outlook presentation by John Kosar, I signed up as a client of Asbury Research (Asbury) in August 2017. My reward for becoming an Asbury client is gaining access to a tremendous amount of technical market information in an easily understood format across a broad swath of markets (equities, commodities, currencies, interest rates, etc.). Great additions to the research information are actionable trade ideas and talking with John to get answers to questions and real time insights. My risk management actions have been improved by the tools available through Asbury. I’m very pleased with the service and the research is an asset to my investment activities.

Individual Investor, Bellevue WA

“Thanks for the voice mail last week.  I am very, very happy with your service because it gives me the courage to go into the market and helps me assess when to go out of the market. I also did very well trading with your Asbury Momentum Model and am exited about using your new Asbury Value Model.”

CEO, Small Cap Biotech Firm, Boston



I want to thank you for keeping my investment to a minimum (during the current correction), saving me money.  I would have been much higher percentage invested if it hadn’t been for your Correction Protection Model, so thanks.  I know we investors get impatient, but now I know you will tell us when the time is right to get back into the market.”

Independent Investor, Florida


Asbury Research is the single best market research provider that I have had in the past 20 years of my investing and trading experience.  Their data driven approach to markets has given me more insight and knowledge to make better, more accurate decisions.  It’s an amazing service and well worth the investment!”

Private Investor, Atlanta

“I have used Asbury Research in my practice for a few years now and not only has Asbury’s calls been right almost every time and made my clients money, but I also have been able to use the concise information provided to me every week as talking points with clients. They think that I am really smart, please don’t tell them that it’s Asbury who is the smart one.”

Principal, Financial Services Firm, Pittsburgh

“I joined the Asbury Research “fan club” in the spring of 2016.  For years I have struggled with garnering actionable trades from some very good research, just so esoteric that I could not put it to use — that is, until I met John Kosar and Asbury at a NAAIM (National Association of Active Investment Managers) conference a few years ago.  I can’t begin to tell you what a game changer his research has made in my models and my practice.  If you want concise, technically driven, actionable research – spend the money and hire John and crew for your team like I did.

Principle, Registered Investment Advisor, Sioux Falls, SD

“I’ve spent the last year or so to thinking about managing money for clients and, obviously, financial planners do a lot of different things for clients.  We justify charging our fees because of all the services we perform such as, retirement advice, tax advice, etc. But what is the thing the clients want the most?  They want to know that I’m adding value regarding their money management, that’s the number one item.  Otherwise what are they paying for?  I have tried lots of different ideas and different systems and none of them have been great, But by utilizing your services, I have been able to do some special things for people.

Financial Planning Firm, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

“Excellent presentation today.  It reminded me why I elected to join your service about a year ago: you do a great job of distilling a tremendous amount  of technical information into understandable, actionable insights.  Coming from a technical background myself, I appreciate how very difficult that is to do.  Again, job well done.  Lastly, thanks again for your call late November/early December (2015) recommending that I “play defense.”  Truthfully, your personal attention caught me off guard- I’ve not been used to such service. Although not fully invested at that time, I was in “too much.”  I took your advice to heart and unwound more positions- some that were not that old.   But in hindsight, you gave clear warning.  I now believe that my growing trust in and understanding of your messages will help me better stay on the right side of intermediate and long term trends.  Thanks for all your efforts.”

C. Harris, Independent Investor, Florida

“Asbury Research is our most balanced and detailed research tool.   John (Kosar, Asbury’s Investment Strategist) looks at the markets with a macro view, taking into account a host of factors for each asset and situation.  We’ve worked with a lot of people who have a very narrow view of the markets, and who seem more interested in hiding their secret sauce or hedging their advice than in providing real value in investment analysis, which is why John is so refreshing. And perhaps most valuable of all, John Kosar focuses on tracking leading indicators, not lagging indicators, and turning them into actionable signals. We look forward to our future in partnership with Asbury Research.”

Independent Financial Advisor, St. Paul Minnesota

“We are very excited about the opportunity to work with John (Kosar) and the team at Asbury Research. Being able to look under the hood of the market and better understand areas of strength and weakness will be valuable tools to assist us with our risk management.

“I have reviewed many technical research products over the years and John Kosar’s Asbury Research is the best I’ve seen to date.”

Director, Institutional Investment Research Firm, New Jersey

“Asbury Research should be a key component in any professional money manager’s resources.  Asbury provides excellent charts/analysis, in a timely fashion that clearly frames the pertinent price ranges for major markets, equities and bonds. Their equity sector calls are aggressive, forward looking and lead most others. Asbury identifies the specific key element(s) of the current market environment, simplifying the investor’s task in getting ahead of upcoming moves.”

Private Wealth Manager, Morgan Stanley, New York

“He (John Kosar, Director of Research) does excellent work on helping money managers time markets.”

“For anyone that doesn’t know Asbury Research – they are an invaluable resource in cross asset trading.”

Robert Savage, Chief Strategist, FX Concepts, New York

“John Kosar at Asbury Research has provided us with timely research and has helped us to avoid making bad decisions at market turning points.   I use “Keys” (To This Week) as a part of my decision making process in equities and fixed income and eagerly wait for it on Monday mornings  Well worth the cost.

Investment Committee Partner, Registered Investment Advisor, Wisconsin

“Back in mid March (2012) I sent a prospect an e-mail with some text from an Asbury Research report that stated ‘we’re in the 8th or 9th inning of the current run up (in the US stock market, from the October 2011 lows) and the chances of the market going down is now greater than it continuing up’The market did indeed decline over the next 30 days (by- 11% into the June 2012 lows), and this afternoon the prospect came into my office and signed transfer paperwork to move a $1.1 million IRA over to me.

“With that kind of information that helps me win accounts, I’ll probably be using Asbury for a long time to come.”

Principal, Wealth Management Firm, Greenville SC

“Your research along with your total (as Steve Jobs use to refer) ecosystem on how you present it and deliver is the best I have seen in  my 27 almost 28 years in the business.”

Chief Investment Officer, Hedge Fund, Minneapolis

I have not seen better technical analysis in my 19-year career.  John (Kosar, Director Of Research) is objective, clear, experienced, sensible, and accountable.  He remains disciplined when markets are schizophrenic and does not hesitate to present contrarian calls even when plenty of seasoned participants are pointing the other way.  Accurate macro forecasting is the product of sound fundamental analysis and superior technical analysis, so John’s work is invaluable to me.”

Macroeconomic Strategist, Investment Research Firm, New York

“Investors need  forward looking research  rather than techniques that can be prone to  looking through the rear view mirror.  By utilizing all facets of technical analysis, Asbury does a great job of giving clients a chance to position portfolios ahead of the next trade.

Chief Investment Strategist, Registered Investment Advisor, Maryland

Keeps me in the market when my personal sentiment would have moved me out.”

“The good job done on covering important technical indicators. The fact that it follows more strategic versus daily indicators. Asbury’s approach is very applicable to my work.

Hedge Fund Manager, New York

Asbury’s investor sentiment work is extremely important. It is more beneficial to many people than they realize.”

Head Trader, Hedge Fund, New York

There is nothing comparative to Asbury Research.  Their research resonates with me.
