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 Followers Profit in All Types of Economies

Trend Followers simply take advantage of price trends. These price trends can be inflationary or deflationary. There never is a prediction rather just following the direction of the trend. It is just that simple. Many times people like to convolute issues or over complicate. There are only 4 potential outcomes….Big losses ( which trend followers prevent with immediate stops)..small losses…small profits ( both of these cancel each other out) and rare big profits due to big trends that extend much more than people think can occur.

In trend following you will see periods of inflation like in the 1980s or 1970s. Commodities such as the grains, metals and energies went ballistic and fortunes were made. Conversely during deflationary times like in mid 2008 profits were generated in falling markets such as Crude and Wheat. It does not matter… No predicting.. ..Just make yourself available for any situation ( almost like fishing..ie if there are trends..up or down…does not matter…trend followers will profit)

Do not want to make one think that trend following is simple or retirement in a box. Trend following takes work however the goal is to build an equity curve over many years. Mutual fund investors have tried this to no avail. Their goal was to invest their $100k or $1 million dollars and at retirement or 10 years have double or triple. This has not been the case and might not be the case. On a personal level I have invested with trend following commodity trading advisors as well as done my own trend following and have built an equity curve over the last 17 years. There are periods which are stronger than others as well as the eventual draw downs but there is no other strategy that is transparent and liquid as managed futures that can let one truly build an equity curve over time.

Look at the picture below… this is an equity curve…It is possible… but it takes time ..discipline and patience
