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.

Dow 1,000 According to Robert Prechter.

Robert Prechter thinks that a stock market crash will happen. One of my colleagues forwarded his Elliot Wave projections.

However investing on tips ( which everyone seems to want) is not healthy for ones investment pocket. One needs to put into perspective that as correct Robert Prechter was in 1987 regarding the crash…investors that heeded his [...]

Has Mechanical Trading & Trend Following Ended

There was a recent article in the wall street journal asking the question, “Has The Black Box Broken? This is not something new to long time commodity trading advisors and trend followers.
