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.

The Reality of Trend Following

Too many investors think they are entitled to returns and making money. They do not realize how much work must go into trend following. A simple example is this actual reality. Over the last several days I have had signals ranging from OJ to Canadian dollars and even more to put on trades. You start the morning and you might think to yourself..GREAT…these trades are working only to look at the screen possibly towards the end of the day…and you see….ALL of your positions are not working.

After 17 years now..I am not upset or even shocked. For too many people, their first reaction is what is wrong with your methodology. It is not working! In reality it is working. No one promised that when I put on a trade it has to work. In all actuality most of my trades do not work. What most do not understand is that my year can be made on several big trades. For example this year’s returns can be attributed to Cotton, Interest rates, Sugar and Silver. Out of approximately 100 trades…most either had small profits or small losses. Only a fee hit some nice returns.

This is what is expected by me. I need to make myself available for all trades. I have no idea what trades will work and assume most will not. I also know that I will stumble into some very big trades that are profitable.

The reality of trend following is that I will have many more days like yesterday and the good news is it does not bother me in the slightest. I know I have already succeeded. Trend following is a numbers game and a way to compound your way to wealth over long periods of time. It is a life time strategy.

The goal is to build a personal equity curve and compound money. For example- Compound $100k over 10 years and let it grow to $400k…or $1 million and make it $4million. These are rough numbers however in reality I have personally done this and seen other trend followers do the exact same.
