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.

Will Gold be the Only Currency?

Will Gold be the Only Currency?

Lets face itג€¦when we look at a $100 Bill. It says this note is legal tender for all debts public and private. More so. It says In God We Trust. Howeverג€¦ Can we still believe in the central banks, the FDIC or for that fact any currency because at the end of the day it is just a piece of fine weaved paper. It does not matter if it is the US dollar, the Japanese Yen or the Swiss Francג€¦ It is just paper. I am not a gold bug nor do I know where the gold market is headed. I am a trend following commodity trader who just reacts and tries to follow trends when they happen. Forget that John Paulson and David Einhorn have purchased tons of gold.

However many central banks have been buying gold. Even small countries like Sri Lanka and Mauritius have been buying gold. Needless to say the populace of China and India has been buying gold. The fact is that Wall Street gambled and placed very bad bets that resulted in unprecedented losses, losses that are being passed on to the American taxpayer. Just the interest on the debt is shocking.
Looking at the facts is very sobering.
It was the first time in 20 years that gold purchases for investment purposes outpaced gold purchases for jewelry demand
For the first time in over 20 years, central banks became net buyers rather than net sellers of gold.
India bought 200 tones of gold in the fall of 2009 and what was most shocking is that they were willing to pay the market price for gold.
Rumors have been flowing around that Arab oil producing states want to to stop using the US currency for oil trading China, Russia and France.
The Iranian oil bourse allows oil sales in several currencies except the US dollar.
There was an agreement between ten member states in Central and South America and the Caribbean to use the Sucre rather than the dollar for intra-regional trade.

The fact is that since 1973, the US has been able to accumulate huge deficits thanks to an agreement with OPEC to price oil in dollars exclusively. This system worked until the 2008 financial crisis.

Look at this last fact and tell me how comfortable you feel. The US must refinance at least two trillion dollars of debt in 2010. The FED can refinance in one of three ways:
1. through the sale of bonds,
2. through increased taxation
3. through monetization by the Federal Reserve

What is ironic to me as a trend follower and follower of the commodity markets are all of those who think all is clear. The Great Recession is over.
Time will tell.
