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.

Fourth Quarter Touchdown for Trend Followers

As I have seen many times nothing happens in trend following other than small losses and small profits. For most of 2010 this is exactly what happened. To many investors who chased the returns of 2008 ( many trend followers made 10-40% returns during one of the worst periods since the Great Depression) gave up in 2010. They made no money in 2009 and nothing happened in most of 2010. Well, nothing has to happen. These investors did not understand that. They went to the next idea and chased returns. This is not what successful, patient and disciplined trend following investors do. These investors who had the patience and discipline were rewarded from approx Aug of 2010. Many of the commodity trading advisors who trend follow had double digit returns. Some even had close to the 40% range by year end. This is exactly what investors need to understand. It is not like the ponzi scheme of Madoff which promised 1% per month which is easy to take. Trend following is hard. Investors need to do their work. It is not retirement in a box. We have to go through periods( even long periods) that at best nothing happens and worse at times we go through draw downs in the 20-30% range. If you have the fortitude for this you stand the distinct chance to compound your way to wealth. If you can not…you should not consider trend following and just leave your money in the bank at almost zero interest rates. Investors need to accept the risk as Mark Douglas states in his books. Accept the risks, compound money over long periods of time, have patience and discipline.

Futures trading involves risk. People can and do lose money
