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.

The World is Wonderful Only 89 Bank Failures

The world is wonderful. The stock market closed up 96 points Friday and over the weekend there were 5 more bank failures. As a trend follower I follow price (long the Nasdaq)…but I think it is interesting that the so many on CNBC or Bloomberg guests speak about Green Shoots. I have to admit this defies any logic. How can there be so many bank failures and yet a stock market rally. Smart Trend followers follow a plan not their opinions.

Bloomberg news states that the FDIC insures deposits at 8,195 institutions with aprox $13.5 trillion in assets and reimburses customers for deposits of up to $250,000 per account when and if a bank fails. The absolute increase of failures has lessened the deposit insurance fund, which fell to $10.4 billion at the end of June from $13 billion in the previous quarter, the agency said. The total was the lowest since 1993. Bank failures are not the only issue. The number of bond failures have been going through the roof as well. With all these bank failures and bond failures the stock market is roaring. Can you imagine when eventually the stock market stagnates or turns down. The ramifications will be terrible. How many people stand to lose money. The key now is that people need to think how to protect assets. The only thing I can think about is managed futures with established commodity trading advisors. I put my money where my mouth is. I have a large portion of my net worth attributed to managed futures, allocating 2-5% of my net worth to any manager or even my own ideas. One of the greatest commodity trading advisors, Tudor came out and stated that in his opinion this is a bear market rally. Look at the facts such as Sugar… Crude..lead…and now Gold ( starting to move) have doubled. If you want to protect your assets think of real assets.

Anyone is entitled to their opinion, but they are only entitled to the facts. Never in our lives have we experienced times like this or what we might have in store for the future.

I have to admit… It totally defies any sense of logic that the stock market has rallied when never in my life do I remember this many banks failing.
