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 & Compounding Money Over the Decades

The goal of trend following is to compound money over time. Too many think that trend following a basket of commodities is easy and just full of profits. More so we have a saying in the office that many think that commodity trading is retirement in a box. So often you see advertisements for trading systems with an uptrending equity curve. However in reality building this positive equity curve takes a great of time, patience and discipline. I know from first hand experience. I have been trend following commodities,currencies, interest rates, energies and metals for now almost 17 years. It is not a get rich quick scheme!. It is however a compound your way to wealth over many long years being patient and disciplined. There have been countless times I have gone through draw downs. Some more extreme than others. However as much as there have been draw downs there have been new equity peaks.
This is what I mean build your own equity curve. For example what will $100,000 look like in 10 years or 20 years? This is the key of trend following. Compounding this $100k or $1 million or whatever that initial investment is. On average the majority of successful long term commodity trading advisors have compounded in the vicinity of 15% over many years. The same with my trading. Do not confuse every year 15% but on average. You can have one year or even two years and not make positive returns and then the 3rd year have a 50% return.

Simple terms $100k compounded over 10 years at 15% grows your equity to $444,000. Over 20 years your $100k grows to $1,971,000.

This is the key to understand. Compound your way to wealth. Trend following is a life time strategy.
