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.

Notionally Funding or Nominally Funding Managed Futures

These are very important terms when trading commodities and dealing with Managed futures. In managed accounts for trend followers or simply commodity trading advisors prospective investors are asked this question…Notionally or Nominally funding. The difference is leverage. The idea of Notionally funding an account is not investing the full amount that a commodity trading advisor seeks. At times this is fine and others it increases your risks. When I allocate to commodity trading advisors I will notionally fund when they are in a draw down with the hope that they will bounce. To clarify further I only allocate to commodity trading advisors that think the way I do regarding risk and draw downs are to be expected. Draw downs give me entry points. However with that said as much as we do not know the future there are times I Nominally fund just to get involved with a commodity trading advisor. The idea goes further when you speak to commodity trading advisors regarding their margin to equity… there are many times the margin is never even approached. Know the differences between notionally and nominally ..more so… notionally increases your risks as well as your potential returns. Notionally investing is a more aggressive approach in commodity trading and therefore I only recommend this only for investors who fully understand the benefits and risks of notional funding. With that said however for the right investor with experience this can be a valuable tool to utilize.
