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.

November 2009 Commodity Trading Advising Trend Followers Results

Will the last 2 months of 2009 make the year for trend following commodity trading advisors or will it be one of those lack luster years? It reminds of a football game and we are in the last quarter with only a few minutes left. The truth though is that trend following commodity trading advisors might not score…and have a good year. Anything is possible in commodity trading. No one promised us year in and year out profits like 2007 and 2008. The key is stay focused and stay in the game. Success in commodity trading is not measured in months…quarters or even one year. It is measured over much longer periods of time….I my opinion…3 and 5 year periods are not overly accurate either. It is a commitment to stay invested. If one can truly have the discipline, they stand the chance of compounding money over long periods of time. No one rings a bell and says now is a great time to invest in trend following. It is always a good time. Every portfolio should have at least a 5% allocation.

Even with that said, I am more optimistic than I have been for a long period of time. Firstly trend following has not truly generated any real returns for a rolling 18 month period. Statistics and probability point to potential greater performance when there has been under performance. Then there is the fact the central banks have flooded the world with liquidity. Any economic student knows this stands a the very strong chance of causing inflation. Inflation means trends. Trends mean potential profits. We are seeing inflation raising it’s ugly head from Vietnam to India. Add in the mixture severe droughts that have been common place through out the world from Argentina to China as well as monsoons destroying crops. It is simple supply and demand. Demand is not decreasing. Populations in the emerging world have grown as well as their economic status. 1.3 Billion Chinese are not just eating rice nor are 1 Billion Indians. The standard of living in both locales has grown dramatically.

Regardless…So how is November looking?…even though it is early in the month…it seems many trend following commodity trading advisors are seeing gains from a low side of 3% to 9% depending on their trading. For example long term trend followers Beach Horizon LLP returned 7.52% e, Drury capital returned 6.48%e..Rabar Market Research 7% e…as well I know from our own programs we trade, our returns are similar. That is the good news… but guess what ..It really means nothing. This month…that month..this year…mean absolutely nothing. The key is to “ride the wild bronco” as Bill Dunn is famous for saying. He has ridden the wild bronco since 1974. He has made himself extremely wealthy and his clients that had the discipline & patience to ride this wild bronco ( trend following).

If you truly want to compound your way to wealth… you really should consider allocating at least 5% of your portfolio to trend following and managed futures.
