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.

Is Intelligence needed in Managed Futures

What truly brings about success in Managed Futures? Is super intelligence needed for success in managed futures. After being involved in managed futures and commodity trading for years and seeing every mistake possible ( plus the ones I made). I have found the holy grail for managed futures. It is not a secret system or indicator… it is simply

Discipline & Patience

Using mechanical system trading for managed futures these aspects along with strong risk control can assist investors in their goal of long term compounding of wealth. I believe in trend following. This further underscores the fact that intelligence is not an issue in success of managed futures. The fact is no one knows the future nor knows more than you do. Once you realize you don’t know the future…and you don’t need to in order to succeed in managed futures you have started to find the holy grail of managed futures trading. The great trend followers know this. They know the news of the day is not what gets them into a trade. Rather they have a thought out plan ..that is simple and basic in many cases which is based on a thought out plan…and more so a thought out risk management system ( such as not more than 1% risk per trade of total equity).
Discipline means following your trading plan… or staying with your commodity trading advisor when they go through the eventual ugly draw down. Have a long term horizon ( 10 years). Realize that any trade means nothing if you are following your trading plan ( or commodity trading advisors trades) that has strong risk aspects…

Patience is realizing nothing has to happen. Patience means potentially going through a draw down that can be extended for a long period of time. Managed Futures trading is like a football game. The key is not to score every quarter but rather win the football game even if that means all the points are scored in the last quarter.
