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.

Using Mental Stops in Commodity & Forex Trading

In my years of experience trading commodities, it seems the only time mental stops should be used is by a large trader who doesn’t want his open stop sitting in the market for the fear that someone might run their stop. For most other traders having mental stops is a serious flaw in their trading. These traders are afraid of getting whip sawed. Well they might avoid getting whip sawed once or twice until the time the market sears through their mental stop and destroys their trading account. As Ed Seykota has said so many times, ” If you want to avoid whip saws..Don’t Trade!”.

What I have seen with mental stops is the commodity trader freezes. All it takes is one bad trade to destroy a trading career. I have seen one successful trader that was a mutual fund manager for decades freeze and blow up his personal trading account.If you have never seen something like this you are fortunate. Not using pre determined stops are one of the main reasons of failure. In my opinion mental stops are an invitation to destroy your trading career. If you are allocating to commodity trading advisors …make sure you understand how they place their stops. Understand their risk management. NEVER>>>NEVER…simply just rely on past trading results.
