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 Following Edge

Trend followers who have patience and discipline have an edge over the masses of investors in the markets. More so trend followers who utilize an automated methodology have even a greater edge. Myself and my colleagues have a completely thought out plan, What gets us into a trade with a profit or loss and does a market have to do in order for us to take a trade that is automated.

However Do not confuse edge and ease of profit. Trend following is very difficult & there are long periods nothing happens and there are draw downs. Most of the time nothing happens. Trends only occur approximately 15% of the time. Our job as trend followers is to play defense and stay out of big trouble. Avoid the big losses like the plague and let the small losses & small profits take care of each other and then there are the rare times markets move past any expectations and trend followers just ride these trends.

People are the same. Fear and greed do not change over the years. It can be the tulip bubble several hundred years ago or the tech bubble in the early 2000s. Nothing changes however ,if you use sufficiently rigorous methods to avoid hindsight ( optimize your system or methodology) ,you can test a system and see how it would have done in the past and get a fairly good idea of how that system or methodology “could” perform in the future.

That is our edge. TEST…TEST…TEST…and TEST more…and then the potential profits are up to the markets. There will be good periods and other periods very rough. This is the reason risk and money management are paramount to success.

Trend following is not retirement in a box. It requires work on part of the investor. There will be draw downs and invariably long periods of no profits. However if one can overcome these realistic issues…they stand the chance to compound money over time. My time horizon is the rest of my life. I want to see what X dollars will look like in 10 years or 15 years. On average I have achieved 15% Compounded rate of return over the last 17 years in my trend following. This is on average. Not every year was profitable and there were years of flat or even negative returns. However then there were years of double digit profits. I was available for potential trends. No predicting and very low level of expectations.

This is what trend following really is. This is not a get rich quick idea but rather compound your wealth over many long years with periods that are very tough and then periods hitting new equity peaks.

Futures trading involves risk. People can and do lose money
