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.

History Always Repeat itself with Manias & Panics.

History always repeats itself however with some slight variations at times. The reason history repeats in all facets of life is that as human beings we hardly change.

It is all about Fear, Greed and not wanting to be different ( follow the crowd).

I am sure many will dispute that but I am referring to a market perspective. One book on my bookshelf discusses manias and crashes throughout history. One can look at the tulip crisis in the Netherlands, the South Sea bubble or even the recent tech meltdown. These manias and crashes occur do to greed and fear. There is very little different from the recent housing crisis to the crisis in tulips. People want to be told what to do. People want to follow other investors. If my friends are doing it then I should be doing it. We saw ( so called investors) buying not one house but 4 or 5 with the intention to flip the house to the next fool. This party ended when the music stopped and banks to real estate agents to so called investors were wiped out.

The opposite of trend followers. We have no idea as well as we have no attachment to our underlying trades ( keyword is trade not investment). We look to ride the trend up…or better said take pieces out of it…and get out once that trend turns around. On a simple example was Cotton this year. Myself and other trend followers got in and rode up cotton to $153 only to see it fall back down t o the $119 range. My methodology had me exit at $133ish. I did not fall in love with cotton and more so I do not know anything about cotton. All I knew was it was moving up and I jumped on board. Investors on the other hand fall in love with their favorite stocks or investments and never believe the prices can fall. They invest because their friends invest. They invest as they feel they will miss out. Once markets turn (which they always do) then the fear sets in. Trend followers do not have greed or fear. What they have is a well thought out plan based on risk and money management. Trend followers play the odds and place them in their favor.

Due to the concept regarding investor’s fears and greed; trend followers are able to flourish and grind out returns over long periods of time. Trend following is a lifetime strategy that enables traders to compound their way to wealth.

Futures trading involves risk. People can and do lose money
