We publish these notifications for 3 reasons:
- to let Asbury Research subscribers know when to consider taking profits on existing positions,
- to let non-subscribers track what we are doing in the market, in real time, and
- to make everyone aware of a potential upcoming price reversal as price advances often end as upside targets are met and more savvy investors take profits.
