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.

Trend Trading Long Term Success

For those of you that have invested in Mutual funds many of you have lost money in your funds over a 10 year period. Compare this to some of the great trend followers. They have been compounding money for decades. Trend following is not a new trading style. Rather trend following started with Richard Donchian back in 1949. After losing all of his money in the Depression ( buy & hold) he learned not to hope, predict price but rather follow a trend if/when it becomes present. The fact is since the time of Joseph and wheat in Egypt trends in commodities have persisted. Too many on Bloomberg or CNBC think they know the future. They come out with statements such as the stock market has bottomed or Gold has gone up to much or too fast and it will fall. A trend follower has no opinion…rather just follows the price action. This is the difference why trend followers who follow a plan have a potential to make money while most traders ( both stock market and commodity traders) lose money.

The point of this post to simply prove there are numerous commodity trading advisors that are trend followers that have compounded money over long periods of time ( Ranging from 10%-20% for decades on average). Last year was most fascinating… We had inflation ( wheat…crude) massive deflation and a bear market and these trend followers made money in the worst period since the great depression.

It is not as simple as just investing money in trend followers. Being an associated person… as well as CTA.. I have seen first hand that people feel that trend following is not intuitive, too long term,or just simply boring. Well one needs to understand why they are investing. My goal is to compound my way to wealth, not excitement. I have been fortunate to have been invested with one commodity trading advisor for 14 years. My investment 7 times over that time frame.

Look at some of these Trend Following Commodity Trading Advisors results .. Why would you ever want to invest in a mutual fund and hope the market goes up. With Trend Following a basket of markets one can go short or long regardless..( make yourself available for oppurtunities)..

Trend following offers the potential to compound your way to wealth. I trade a commodity pool with my colleagues as well allocate to other commodity trading advisors. Why ? My goal is to compound my way to wealth and after investing since 1994 have not found anything that gives me liquidity. transparancy and potential return as trend following in the futures markets. When trend following we look at products that we use in our daily existence. From waking in the morning…drinking my coffee or orange juice…eating my toast ( wheat)..getting into my car ( various metals) paying for gas…( depending which currency)..I am looking at items every person in the world uses… Each of them has bull markets and bear markets. Why do I need to limited just to the stock market and hope for a bull market. A quick fact from 1960-1970+ buy and hold lost money. Too many recent stock market investors only have the experience from 1982 ( the super bull market that might have ended).

Think about it… if you want to compound your way to wealth…learn more about trend following in the futures markets.
