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 Following Thoughts For All Time

Sometimes we all need some quiet time to just think. It came to me that I am not trading commodities or trend following. I am in the compounding money business. Compounding money as per Einstein is one of the wonders of all time. Every investor needs to think what will my investment of $100k or $1,000,000 be worth in 10 years or 20 years. Sadly most investors have been misled and thought the only way to compound money was via the stock market. 10 years later most have lost money!

Here are some of my thoughts to ponder
1. It does not matter fundamental or technical
2.Million ways to invest- But the key must be to compound money
3.Stay focused and be confident in the most adverse conditions. These adverse conditions or draw downs will surely occur.
4. Have an exact plan. Believe in that plan as you believe in GD. Never give up the faith. It is a numbers game and a lifetime strategy. My example is Bill Dunn who has been trend following since the 1970s had a terrible period in which 3 years in a row he was down. However on the 4th year he came roaring back with a 100% return. He is volatile but this is an example of tenacity and never giving up.
5.Any signal regardless of reason is 50/50
6.Losing money or trades not working are unavoidable unless you want to invest with Bernie Madoff clones
7.Your goal is put on and off trades without any emotional discomfort.
8. Accept the risk. I ask myself , How much is going to cost me to see if it will. If I am willing to risk anywhere between .3 to 1% of my account the answer is yes.
9.Do not be afraid of missing out. Fear of leaving money on the table or losing money will only bring on failure.
10 Be consistent, limit your leverage, think in terms of probabilities, be consistent in your plan.
11. Attitude gives a better result than any analysis or technique. This was demonstrated by the turtles & Richard Dennis. They all had the same simple formula yet they all have different results.

Be in the Zone. Flow…Trend Follow…Do not predict…Your opinion means nothing. No one knows the future

Trend following is my way to compound my way to wealth and is a life time strategy
