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.

Real Commodity Trading versus Hypothetical Commodity Trading

Too often commodity trading system sellers or new managers post a hypothetical record. A hypothetical record has severe limitations. As much as I live the daily charts a glaring example is evident. My trading methodology is fully automated with entries and risk management. In the last several days the grain complex has gone ballistic. Like a space ship to outer space, corn, wheat and soybeans have taken off. We had a signal to purchase corn. However corn was limit up and was about $7 dollars above my purchase price. Instead of trying to chase the price…My original order stands in the market. Today corn is up +37.5 as I am writing this. Clearly I was not able to participant in this trade ( As much as I am not participating several of the managers we have allocated are involved and prospering).
What is interesting if I look at my system reports it shows hypothetically I am in this trade. The fact is I am not in this trade and this is the extreme weakness when looking at hypothetical returns. Slippage is not truly shown as well as over a series of trades some these trades never occurred in reality. The point is that when you invest with a commodity trading advisor it is imperative to understand how he thinks and his methodologies. This is almost more important than the returns. Numbers on hypotheticals can be manipulated and reality can be distorted. Trend following is a life time strategy. No one rings a bell when a trend starts or stops. There are always bull markets and bear markets.

Consider the fact cotton has almost doubled in price since 2008. Has the stock market doubled in price? NO!
Consider the fact crude imploded in a bear market and crashed. Fortunes were made and lost shortly with the bear market in crude. The idea is make yourself available when there are trends in the commodity markets. Manage the risk prudently and compound your way to wealth.
