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.

Retracements in Trend Following

The basic premise of trend following is so hard for most people. The idea of buying a new high or selling a new low is the anti thesis to virtually all. Everyone wants to be smart and buy low and sell high. That is great but I have not met too many people who can successfully do this. The recent move in cotton was full of it’s pundits. We purchased cotton at 79.03..or something like that…I heard so many traders say it can not go much higher at 100. Well… in reality it went to approx 153.

In trend following we have no idea how high can high be or how low can low be. That is why in trend following we have to do the uncomfortable. Buy new highs (strength)..sell new lows (weakness)… ( even though most of these trades do not work) and not wait for retracements. It is human nature to want a bargain when trading or investing. Waiting however for retracements will lead to missed trades. If I missed the cotton trade this past July my yearly trading results would have been negatively impacted.

Bottom line is do not wait for retracements or pick & chose your trades. Take every trade. Believe in your system and you put yourself in the position to make trend following a life time strategy of compounding money.
