Andrew Abraham

andy-0101 My name in Andrew Abraham. I have been investing in commodities and managed futures since 1994. I adhere to the philosophy of trend following. Trend following stresses a disciplined approach to commodity/ futures trading. Successful trend following and commodity futures investing requires patience, discipline and actively managing the risk. What sets me apart from other traders is that I am not only concerned about the return on investment but how much risk I will have to tolerate to achieve my goals.

Stock Market Crash-Recession-Depression?


In the summer of 2007 ֲ concerns were rising regarding mortgages and other toxic paper. The concernsֲ ֲ were causing drops in the Dow and NASDAQ. Ironically ֲ Geroge Bushֲ called the American economy ג€œthe envy of the world,ג€ noting that its fundamentals were ג€œstrong… Job creation is strong. Real after-tax wages are on the rise. Inflation is low.” Now compare this toֲ Herbert Hoover in 1928 on the eve of the Depresson, stated ֲ ג€œWe in America today are nearer to the final triumph over poverty than ever before in the history of any land. The poorhouse is vanishing from among us.

Comparing these two statements makes one think or maybe better said… Worry…


Where are we really in this cycle. Are we in a Recession? Have we entered a Depression? Everyone seems to have an opinion. However only in retrospect will we really know. We have not had any waterfall declines such as 1987 or even 1929. Seems things are just dragging down or grinding us down. The anxiety is not just in the stock market but seems to be encompassing our entire lives. It seems to many the world has changed. Who would have really believed interest rates would be virtually zero. Who would have believed that Citi would be $2.51. Surely not the Abu Dhabi investment authority or Bin Alaweed. It seems more money was lost trying to catch the bottom. Seems everyone wants to call a bottom. Not to be negative but all one has to do is look at Japan. Their economy,stock market and real estate market has been in the dumpster close to 20 years. Why can that not happen in the Western economies. I have never met anyone who has been long time successful predicting anything..not alone the stock market. One needs not to have an opinion and simply follow the market where it wants to go in order to be successful.ֲ 


There is more to this though. I am not just thinking from a trading perspective but rather a main street USA perspective.ֲ The sale of antidepressants and antianxiety drugs are rising. People are losing their homes. Businesses are firing employees. Some companies that have existed for years , actually longer than memory are shutting their doors. Gun sales are increasing. I even read an article that there were shortages of bullets in some locals. Peopleֲ are taking cash out of the bank in preparation for a long-haul bad time. They have no confidence in the banks… or for that fact much of anything. More worrisome is the fact if someone wants Gold Eagle Coins they can not obtain them from the US mint.ֲ



American Eagle Gold Proof Coins
Production of United States Mint American Eagle Gold Proof and Uncirculated Coins has been temporarily suspended because of unprecedented demand for American Eagle Gold Bullion Coins. Currently, all available 22-karat gold blanks are being allocated to the American Eagle Gold Bullion Coin Program, as the United States Mint is required by Public Law 99-185 to produce these coins ג€œin quantities sufficient to meet public demand . . . .ג€ֲ ֲ 


So where does that leave us?

Are we just in a Recession or the beginning of a Depression?

What do you think?
