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.

Can Trend Following End In The Commodity Markets?

The question is… Can trend following end? First of all… anything can happen and it will happen. However as a long time trend follower, in my opinion there are numerous reasons why I do not believe trend following can or will end. The question came up when I was in a meeting with an institutional investor earlier in the week and in all of his years exposed just to the equities markets, he was skeptical of trend following. He asked if everyone knew the concept of trend following the results would falter. Interesting question I told him and told him if we were so lucky to read the front page of tomorrows business page that probably would not help us to make money. In my opinion why Trend following has worked and probably stands a very strong chance of continuing is the basis of human nature. This is what separates long term successful investors & commodity trading advisors and the non successful investors. After years of observations of the commodity markets, forex markets and stock markets nothing ever changes. Bubbles..egos…fear.. over and over again. Firstly few investors really have a thought out plan. Trend followers have a plan and benefit from those who do not have a plan. Next, How many investors give up after a few loses in a row? The answer is the majority. It is easier for them to be a buy and hold investor. This way they do not have to realize their losses. How many so called investors are still holding their Nasdaq index funds after the 2000 blowup? Next… There would have to be a major shift of investors from fundamental analysts to technical analysts. The concept of technical analysis professes that one can go equally long as well as short. Last year short sellers were made to be the devil and the cause of the crisis.Next, Investors would need to realize this is hard work. They would not listen to the gurus on Bloomberg or CNBC to make money anymore. Investors would need to have a full plan that not only encompasses buying and selling but HOW MUCH. So many times we read in the business press one hedge fund or investment blows up. The reason is leverage and disregard for the mentioned “too much risk”. If investors want to be successful they need to think of risk per trade…risk per sector…and total overall portfolio risk. The fact is most investors do not think this way is one of the forefront reasons Trend following should continue in the future. Trend following commodity trading advisors take advantages of the fear and the greed in the commodity markets. They do not predict them…but ride them with a thought out plan. The fact is people are emotional beings. They have egos…fears…and greed. These emotions cause trends. Trend following commodity trading advisors take advantage of these emotions. The key to compounding your way to wealth is having a plan…discipline…and patience to let the plan work out. Commodity trading as well as forex trading is one of the hardest careers to master.
