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.

Trend Followers Rate of Return

I had an interesting email yesterday asking why I was writing about trend following. It made me think. I was asked if I was managing money as well. The fact is I am trading with 2 colleagues and building our personal record without holding ourselves out.

I think the reason I write about trend following is I am very thankful that I learned this strategy and I am adherent supporter of trend following. I have realized that trend following has become a lifetime strategy as well as a means of compounding my way to wealth. I do not want to make it seem easy however. It is a mental challenge full of need of discipline and patience. It is not a get rich quick scheme. In all reality nothing has happened on a rolling 24 month period nor does it have to. August was a relatively good month for most trend followers as well as our methodologies. No one rings a bell when trends start or finish. Just need to ride them like a wild bronco with total risk and money management.

Look at the list of Commodity trading Advisors Rates of returns, some of these date back to the 1980s. Before you get too excited you must bear in mind the draw downs that they experienced. In many cases they were in the max range of 20-30% and your greatest draw down is always ahead of you. For simplicity I have used a 3 year ROR. Just compare this to how your mutual funds did! These are just a very small sampling of established trend followers. The greatest irony is that even with these great results many investors in Commodity trading advisors lose money. These investors jump on board during periods of positive returns only to quit at the first draw down.

Dunn Capital Management, Inc. 14.62%

Transtrend B.V. 16.39%

To give you an idea of compounding your way to wealth.

Imagine you start with $100,000 and “ On Average” return 15% after 20 years what is our $100,000 worth.
