Pulling in Their Horns
Informal; the practice in which investors close positions or set up offsetting, hedge positions when a security has recently seen a sudden increase in price. When investors pull in their horns, they lock in the gain they made from their positions. This happens in order to protect the investor from sharp turnarounds in price.
