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.

Inflation on the Horizon-Is Trend Following The Answer

These are the exact words of Warren Buffett. Buffett was very clear when he stated ” policymakers will have to raise money to pay off costly rescue plans – one way or another”. So how do you play this. It is obvious that there should be inflation. The amount of money that was printed over such a short time has never happened. So how can you protect your net worth? Firstly in an inflationary period Bonds are not something to consider. Another thing to consider is that no one knows the future. Anything can happen to the US Dollar. Quite possibly the US will have to be devalued due to the tremendous debt the FED has burdened us with. This will lower the debt…as well lower our purchasing parity. Simply make are dollars worth alot less.

A thought to protect our hard earned money is to invest with traders ( CTAs) that Trend Follow. In most cases Trend Followers have no opinion and look at a broad base of commodiites,currencies and other financial futures. There is no free lunch and there are always risks and some CTAs can have very steep draw downs. More so, past performance is not indicative of future preformance.

With the risk warnings mentioned, you need to find a CTA who has been around for a long time (still this does not alleviate all risks) and thinks in terms of risk. When I invest with a CTA, I ask what is the risk per trade, risk per sector,total open trade risk as well as margin to equity. These parameters are a good base in order to start judging a CTA which Trend Follows. There are many more issues. You would need to do a background search on the trader. You look for liens, judgements, criminal cases as well as check with the NFA ( National Futures Association).

It is my personal belief a basket of diversified Trend following CTAs can potentially protect your net worth. Think of the alternative, your US dollars can devalue and all the goods you purchase increase to absurd levels. Do you remember Gas prices in 2008 or how expensive was your last pizza with the price of wheat.

As a tool to protect your net worth… consider investing with CTAs that Trend Follow.
