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.

A Recent Interview

I’ve read many of your articles, and I’ve included your name in my work. I’d appreciate if you answered a couple of questions to attach to my work.

1. What aspect of the Stock Market has caught your attention the most?
Actually I look at over 80 markets and the stock markets are just one of them…the reason being… I am looking to make myself and our clients available for any bull or bear market… when just focusing on one market….this limits the potential for success…there have been long periods the stock market has not made money …ie…1998 to present..or even in the 1960s through the mid 1970s.

2. Do people’s personality influence them to choose one kind of trading system or another? How?
Great of the issues is that people have to right…or think they know the future….This is a recipe for disaster…. I think one needs to be very humble…It is not chosing a trading system…only simple ideas that look at a wide base of markets stand the chance of long term success… I am a trend follower… I know that I do not the future… I let the markets sway me by price action…I do not have to be right… I have the mental fortitude to go through draw downs… most people give up and look to try another method or system…and all they do is lose money… I have seen it all since I have been trading since 1994.. there is no magic system…it is commitment.. I realize that I will have many many small losses which mean nothing…as well if the last trade does not has no bearing on the next one..Just have to put the next one on.

3. A lot of people think trading is like a “game”. What do you think about that? is a mental game… it is a zero sum game.. but we have a set of rules in which we follow.. having colleagues watch every move…reinforces the discipline…We work as a team…

4. What’s your favourite or favourites indicators?
There are really not any specific indicators…..we use models ( systematic models)… that use several systems that have their own entry rules…exit rules..and position sizing… as well I trade another system that is simply price based with some trend filters… there are no magic indicators or systems… it is just staying in the game… with tested logical ideas with strong money management and risk management..

5. What are the most important qualities (or quality) a trader should have?
Patience..and Discpline..

6. How often do you think trading systems should be changed?
I am not in favor of optomizing or changing… The idea using simple ideas that are time tested negates the need the change.. Markets have trended over times… If you look at a chart of over a hundred years ago…it could like today…as well it does not matter if it is a forex..a commodity…or even a stock…

Thank you very much for your time and attention.
