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.

Want to Lose Money When Trend Following- Try Curve Fitting

The real world of trend following and trading can not be easily replicated when doing all types of computer testing. One of the biggest mistakes is trying to curve fit. Curve fitting means that you change parameters for each market you are trading. In order to succeed in trend following you need a simple robust system that lets you trade all markets exactly the same. At the same time I speak about curve fitting one can easily add the wording optimizing. With the help of a computer you can find that perfect combination of parameters but in the real road it would be very questionable if they will hold up.

Instead of trying to find the holy grail ( which does not exist) put your emphasis on risk management ideas. When trend following it is defense..defense…defense… and when you least expect it…or after one of those ugly draw downs…you catch onto some really nice trend.

Putting aside the trading aspect…the mental aspect is probably more important. It is all how you think. You need to realize that your money or compounding is made over a long series of trades. No get rich quick here…rather..grind it out…go through ugly draw downs and then hit new equity peaks…This is trend following. If you can do this instead of thinking of retirement in a box, you stand the chance to compound your way to wealth and make trend following a life time strategy
