The Team

John Kosar, CMT
Chief Market Strategist

John is a managing principal and chief market strategist at Asbury Investment Management LLC.  He has almost 40 years of experience and insight in analyzing and forecasting global financial markets.  


John spent the first half of his career on the trading floor of the Chicago futures exchanges, where he had the opportunity to learn how the US financial markets work from the inside out. This experience, early in his career, became the foundation for his unique analysis, understanding of intermarket relationships, and global perspective. 

John incorporates a diverse and comprehensive blend of technical and quantitative metrics that tend to be more intuitive and forward-looking than the typical Wall Street approach.  John is a contributor to Forbes and is frequently quoted in the financial press in both the US and abroad including The Wall Street Journal,, Barron’s, Yahoo! Finance,, and Reuters. 


He can regularly be seen on U.S. financial television including CNBC, Fox Business, and Bloomberg, and is a frequent speaker at financial seminars and events across the country presented by organizations including the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Society, the National Association of Active Investment Managers (NAAIM), the CMT (Chartered Market Technician) Association, and the American Association of Individual Investors (AAII). 


During his career he has been an analyst and trader for a number of prominent firms including Shearson American Express, NatWest Markets, Greenwich Capital Markets, and Deutsche Bank.
