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.

Does Jim Rogers Really Know the Future

Maybe the better question might be, can one really make money listening to Jim Rogers? This leads to the next question does Jim Rogers really know the future? Jim Rogers humbly states he can not predict the future. I have had the question posed to me how to make money with Jim Rogers. I could only answer that without a well thought out trading plan I doubt someone could listen to Jim and actually make money. For example cotton went to extremes that none excepted last fall, but fall it did. Cotton fell from the 150 range to a low of 108. That is a HUGE drop regardless of the fact cotton has rebounded. Yes he is a legend and a wonderful trader yet one needs their own personal plan ( or they allocate to a professional commodity trading advisor that they understand what he/she is doing and how they are managing the inherent risks). I once heard Larry Hite ( a trend following genius) and he said even if he knew were a market would end on 12.31 he would never take that trade, because you do not know how much volatility could be in the interim of that year. This sums up at least for me the ideas of Jim Rogers. Yes he has had wonderful calls but the interim could be painful.

In the interview below Jim Rogers speaks about silver. My methodology bought silver in the summer. Not that I had any inside information or knew anything about silver. It simply hit my criteria in which signaled a buy. This was one of the best trades of the year. However that same methodology signaled possibly the trend was ending and I exited. If silver continues on its ascent I will probably be buying silver if the volatility is not too great. After all the years as much as I enjoy watching Jim Rogers I can not trade simply by his suggestions. I have a well thought out plan that takes into account all possibilities and manages the risk. Trading in this fashion I do not need to predict, know the future or listen to gurus.

Futures trading involves risk. People can and do lose money
