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.

Japan intervenes in the Forex Market

You go to sleep with a nice trade on and you wake up and you are completely on the wrong side of a trade. This example I have seen countless times as well as been effected. I would assume the majority of trend followers and forex traders have been long the Japanese Yen for a long time. I have and it has been a nice trade until the Japanese Central bank intervened in the forex markets last night. The Yen went from 1.20770 to bang 1.17030. The reasons why the Japanese Central bank intervened in the forex markets are not important nor do they put money in your pockets. Actions like this in the forex markets prove once again trading success is based on Defense….and more defense. What I mean is risk. It is so important to think in terms of risk per trade. If someone loaded the boat with Yen ( Which I am sure they did) they are facing huge losses this morning. Do not risk more than 1% of your trading account on any trade. If you do not trade yourself make sure the commodity trading advisor does not risk more than 1%. The next issue is the sector risk. All the currencies in the forex world such Aussie dollar, Canadian Dollar, Euro all fell in tangent this morning. I do not allow more than a 5% allocation in any sector to mitigate this type of volatility and last issue regarding risk is the whole open trade risk. Once you get to certain point…lets say 15% open trade not take on more positions…and even scale back if you have multiple contracts. This mornings action with Japan in the forex markets happens over and over. Use this as a lesson to learn regarding risk.
