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.

Media’s Confusion with Commodity Futures Trading

There was an interesting article yesterday in the Wall Street Journal. The article spoke about Bluetrend a trend follower & commodity trading advisor who last year earned 43.4%. The article discussing the struggles that Blue trend is currently going through this year ( down 5.5%). The truth is, in commodity futures trading returns like last year are above the norm. The other part is returns like this attract a lot of hot inexperienced money. This is exemplified by the drop of assets under management from $8.6 Billion to $7 Billion. In order to compound your way to wealth investors need to commit themselves to their commodity trading advisor for a minimum of 3-5 years. Other than that they make themselves open to disappointment. More so. I got the impression that there was doubt that Bluetrend can come out of this slump. The fact is in commodity futures trading, the only time there is money to be made is when there are trends. If there are no trends the majority of commodity trading advisors will not make money. That is why I stress the idea of patience. No one knows when a trade starts or stops. The whole idea of trend following is make yourself available for the upcoming trends. Quiet times lead to trendy periods.

In addition the article only focused on the largest commodity trading advisors who have billions of dollars under management. The issue that most do not understand, is that it becomes much harder to continue to generate high returns with large amounts of money under management. The more money they have, the more potential slippage, as well as they are limited in the markets they are trading.When one invests with a commodity trading advisor they need to understand their methodology… risk management and money management. There are too many that are guided by returns and not proper due diligence. In conjunction to the quantitative approach a strong investigation into the qualitative issues are important.

Commodity futures trading can be a wonderful way to compound ones way to wealth but only with proper discipline, risk management and patience.
