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.

Hawksbill Average annual return of 33.27%

Futures magazine wrote a piece on Tom Shanks from Hawksbill. Tom Shanks was one of the original turtles with Richard Dennis. What worked in the 1980s so wonderfully for the turtles failed in the 1990s. Hawksbill however adapted and returned 96.23% in 2008, was down 15.28% in 2009 and earned 57.61% in 2010. Considering most strategies other than trend following & commodity trading lost money in 2008 this is extremely impressive. What mostly impressed me most about Tom Shanks is he states the most important lesson is to learn and improve.

All three strategies run independently and can take opposing positions. “We trade [each] signal regardless of what the other signals are doing,” Shanks says. “These three systems work in concert as a suite to produce a better risk-adjusted return than any of the three does separately,” Shanks says.

Shanks has learned a lot from the masters, the most important lesson being that he must continue to learn and improve.
