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.

15 Year High on Cotton

Sure if you listen to many of the news services they are saying inflation is not an issue. Well all one has to do is look at Cotton. A 15 year high on cotton would seem inflationary. At the same time the grains are moving due to shortages and bad weather. Continuing the story with Sugar. The fact is Cotton is up 62% so far this year. Moves like this are a trend followers delight. However I have seen all too many times that these great trends just end.

Some Global Macro traders as well as Hedge-fund managers and other large speculators increased their net-long positions in New York futures by 2 percent last week. They are playing on the momentum and strength of cotton.
As in Wheat there is a real shortage of raw cotton available to mills. The expectation is that clothing prices will increase. This is inflation! Stock piles are down and even China, the world’s biggest cotton grower and buyer, stated that they may have to increase imports as weather hurt crop production. Because floods in Pakistan or rain elsewhere crops have been diminished. This is basic supply and demand.

As Jim Rogers has stated Agriculture investing will be the next area of strength. In the short run we are seeing this. You have a choice…be hurt by inflation or ride the rising prices. This is what trend following is. Regardless inflation …deflation..drought…flood… we do not predict…we buy strength and sell weakness while attempting to put on low risk bets.
