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.

Can You Handle the Draw Downs in Trend Following?

I do not care which methodology…which commodity trading advisor there will be draw downs. The problem is people become fixated on seeing a number that a manager made last year for example +38%. What they do not look at was the draw downs or even the duration of the draw downs of that manager that year or even the year prior. I will almost promise( Not that I am predicting) that virtually most trend followers will go through at a minimum of a draw down of 20% and probably over a long period of 10-20 years probably a 30% draw down. Many investors think they can weather these draw downs however when they go through the eventual trend following draw down they panic. Draw downs are all part of trend following. No ever promised any of us it is easy. Trend following takes mental fortitude. If you can manage your emotions with patience and discipline you stand the distinct chance of compounding your way to wealth. Nothing changes in the world..fear…greed..drought…inflation…deflation, it is all the same. These events make trends and our job is to follow the trend. One of my colleagues shared with me a statement from Mike Tyson, ” Everyone has a plan until they get hit in the mouth”. Understand you will have draw downs, use them to your advantage to add to your trading account or start allocating to a commodity trading advisor.

Trend following is a lifetime strategy.

Futures trading involves risk. People can and do lose money
