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.

Research in Commodity Trading

Research in Commodity Trading
There are those in the camp that successful commodity trading can be achieved from research. Honestly I am in the camp of being a trend followerג€¦having no opinions..and simply reacting to price with a strong focus on risk. The approach of trend following is not looked upon as favorably as one who looks at the fundamentals and spends countless hours researching. A simple question howeverג€¦ even after the researchג€¦who says the researcher is rightג€¦or if the trade will work? I would tend to believe 50/50 however many disagree ( I guess this is what makes a marketג€¦we all canג€™t agree).
The question arises; does everyone have the chance of success in commodity trading? How about who is most likely to be right? Is it blind luck? Good questions that I do not have the answer to (nor do I really think anyone does). In my opinion, I believe having a well thought out trading plan with strong layers of risk management based on basic concepts that are trade able across all markets and time frames.

In my opinion, more importantly than research is risk management. To give you an example I once heard Larry Hite discuss which hits home the concept. If you knew exactly where the market would end in a given year, would that make you successful?
His answer was an outstanding NO! You would not know how much of the position to put on ( you could get wiped out by using too much leverage as Victor Niederhoffer did in 1998). At the on set of an evitable draw down you might be urged to exit your position. How would you feel what ever market or stock would be down intra year..intra month..70%? What happens if it occurred more than once?
The idea of risk is paramount. With the greatest systemג€¦The greatest research..The greatest whateverג€¦without risk managementג€¦Success is most likely not achievable.
