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.

Trend Follower Legend 25%+ CAR

I always seem to have discussions with people that don’t believe that there are unknown traders or trend followers who have generated in excess of 25% CAR returns via trend following. It seems that everyone knows Warren Buffet or maybe George Soros. Besides them…I hear the word…IMPOSSIBLE! Who has ever heard of Tom Shanks of Hawksbill? Probably few to none. Tom spent three years exclusively managing capital for Richard Dennis in the Turtle Program at C&D Commodities.He has been out on his own since 1988.

As of end of Oct this year Tom was up 51%. In 2008 he was up 96.45%. However in 2009 he was down approx 15%. The mistake that many make is to invest with trend followers like Tom when they are up. What I personally do is invest with long term successful commodity traders when they have their eventual draw downs. Hawksbill trades more than 50 financial and commodity futures markets, using three trading systems. The primary difference between each system is the timeframe utilized.

I do not want you to think this is easy or retirement in the box. Hawksbill has had some deep draw downs( -60%) as well as massive returns as in 1990 he returned 252%. He has modified the systems to make them less volatile…however the next big draw down is always ahead of you.

This is Hawksbill website

The first client of the Global Diversified program of Hawksbill who invested $300,000 in 1988 (even with redemptions
of more than $1 million) the client’s account has grown, without further additions, to over $18 million.

The premise I want to share is if you can be disciplined…and patience it is possible to compound your way to wealth and make trend following a life time strategy.

You can trade your own account if you have the proper plan and outlook or otherwise you can allocate to a commodity trading advisor.
