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.

Chasing Returns or Wanting to Compound money via Trend following

Chasing Returns or Wanting to Compound money via Trend following

What the mistake I see over and over again is investors place money with a commodity trading advisor with extreme expectations of wealth & profit. They look at a recent run of a commodity trading advisor and believe they too are entitled to those returns. They basically buy the high of the equity curve. The reality however is as much as positive returns ,what I have seen repeatedly is after a good run there are big draw downs. When an investor chases returns he/she sets themselves up for huge disappointment. Rather chase returns it is advisable to understand how a commodity trading advisor trades, ie what are his risk parameters, what is his money management, how his system works and then make an introductory allocation full knowing that his greatest draw down is ahead of him. At the time of this expected draw down you will not have unrealistic expectations and you should be mentally ready to add to your position.

Past performance is not indicative of future performance

Working in this fashion gives you the potential to compound money over time. It is not a consistent 15% year in and year out but rather a minus 3%…then a plus 22% and then possible a 12%. It all depends but in general if you want to succeed in trend following and compound your way to wealth you need to temper your expectations and ask yourself what will my account be worth in 10 years or 15 years. Trend following involves thinking correctly. It is not just some robust trading system. Patience & Discipline.
