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.

Foreign Currency Trading Ideas

Lets face it… it is tough to make a buck these days..The interest rates on the US dollar are virtually zero. Astute investors and Hedge Funds have been involved in foreign currency trading for years. There is a term called the Carry Trade. Carry trades use funds in countries with lower borrowing costs to invest in those with higher rates, allowing investors to profit on the difference. Trade your US dollars…or in the past Japanese Yen and buy higher yielding currencies such as Aussi dollar or even the Brazil Real. The Aussi dollar and the Brazil Real, are set at the benchmark of their central bank at a rate of 11.25 percent. This is about 11 points more than the corresponding U.S. rate. One can borrow or leverage their trade for example the three-month London interbank offered rate of 1.13 percent and using the proceeds to buy real and earn Brazilג€™s three-month deposit rate of 10.51 percent rate would net an annualized 9.38 percent, as long as both currencies remain stable. This is the key is that the currencies stay stable. Another idea could be trade in your US dollars for Aussi Dollars or Reals.You are diversifying your base currency if the US dollar devalues. Forex currency trading can be very profitable as well as dangerous if you leverage. For each currency trade you might want to consider risking no more than 2% of your net worth. Potentially another idea is to make up a basket of High Yielding currencies such as the Turkish lira, Hungarian forint, Indonesian rupiah, South African rand in conjunction with the Real and Aussi Dollar. Always consider the risks…Think of what you can lose as a pose to make. There are many forex currency trading brokerages for investors to do their online currency trading so this does not have be a hard decision.

It seems some of the volatility in the currency markets have quited down. With this in mind potentially conditions are about right to make carry strategies attractive again. Really how much fun is it making less than 1% on your money?
