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.

Do you Really Want to Succeed in Commodity Trading?

Ed Seykota has said that we all get out of the markets what we want. What does he mean by this? Some people want excitement but hopefully you want to succeed and compound your money. This is what I want to continue to do.
If you are a serious and want to compound your money, is it to hard to imagine that you are capable of obtaining a return on your money that exceeds the riskless yield of treasury bills.
You have a choiceג€¦you can learn to tradeג€¦or if you do not have the time or ability to trade, you can succeed and compound your money by allocating to commodity trading advisors who have experience and understand risk. Another possible idea is to trade a mechanical trend following system that has both risk and money management combined. Successful commodity trading takes time, effort, patience and discipline. Considering these aspectsג€¦wouldnג€™t you expect to be rewarded? Is it unreasonable that you earn over time two or three times the Treasury bill yield? I believe and have seen first hand it is possible with a proper mindsetג€¦discipline and method that a commodity investor can earn two to three time the Treasury bill yield.
However success in commodity trading is not the norm. Most lack the discipline and patience and seek immediate gratification.
Regardless if you are trading for yourself or allocating to commodity trading advisors or investing in a mechanical trend following system certain basic rules must be adhered to. Basically the rules of cutting your losses, letting your profits run, and never adding to a losing trade. Trend following a large basket of commodities gives one the potential to compound money over time.
Ben Franklin said, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” If that is true, why then do we keep breaking the rules and still believe ourselves to be good traders? Are we insane? There is the story about the wood chopper who could not chop down trees anymore since his blade was dull. He continued to try to cut down trees with a dull blade. It was evident he was not able to cut down trees but kept on trying over and over again with the dull blade.
Perhaps one reason we keep breaking the rules is they are too difficult to follow. A good discretionary trader is forced to go against his nature. For example, he has to cut his losses, [experience his pain in the present], and let his profits run, [put off his gratification for later]. We all know that we like to feel good now and put off pain until later.
This brings us to an interesting conclusion. Why be a discretionary trader?
I have invested in and use time tested mechanical commodity trading systems. These commodity trading systems are based on trend following. I have been investing in commodities and other trend following programs since 1994. First hand, over the long term, these trend following mechanical systems have performed better than twice the rate of treasury bills. No one knows the future however trading a large basket the potential to continue to be profitable is possible. Keep in mind however that futures trading is risky and people can and do lose money.
