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.

More Bank Failures in 2010 than in All of 2009

The number of USA bank failures just increased to 129 this week. These bank failures take out all of 2009 so far with a full 3 months to go. As a realist I find it hard to believe all the news of a recovery when I see more bank failures, people not paying their mortgages on their homes, unemployment unabated yet the stock market is just rallying along. These are fascinating times! ( I am long the SP 500 & ND with a following stop). If I traded my opinions I would have never taken this trade! We are trend followers so we do not predict…if any market is strong…and is a low risk bet…we just see what happens.

Here is a short sample of some prior bank failures:

1.ISN Bank of Cherry Hill, N.J. failed with $81.6 million in assets and will be taken over by New Century Bank of Phoenixville, Pennsylvania. New Century operates as the holding company for Customers Bank, and it and the FDIC will share $64.8 million in losses on loans and other assets.

2.Bramble Savings Bank in Milford, Ohio was shut down with some $47.5 million in assets. Its takeover is by Foundation Bank of Cincinnati, Ohio.

3.Maritime Savings Bank of West Allis, Wisconsin failed with assets right at $350.5 million, and it is being taken over by North Shore Bank of Brookfield, Wisconsin.

Maybe I do not get it…but it seems that Hundreds of millions of dollars can soon ramp up to Billions of Dollars of loses for the FDIC. Do they just print the money when they need it? What do you think?
