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.

Is Gold an asset Class or a Trade?

Had an interesting discussion regarding the question if gold is an asset class on its own or simply a trade. I guess the answer depends on who you ask. I trade a large basket of commodities, interest rates, energies,currencies, grains and metals. I will go long as well as go short ( really have no bias or beliefs in any of the markets I trade). The universal given however is that gold is a storage of wealth. As a commodity trader I asked the question, what is the difference in copper or corn. They are also a source of storage of wealth. As well I asked was gold an asset class when it fell from the highs in the 1980s to the lows in 1990s? Who would have wanted to old gold at that period? It would have been a terrible to hold gold. Now that gold has made a major move it is buy and hold asset(or a trade)?

As a commodity trader I believe anything can happen and position myself in this context. I will only take low risk bets. It does not matter if it is gold or corn? I believe as easily as gold could surpass $2000 or even more, I believe it could also fall to $200 dollar range. Maybe I am saying Blasphemy to a gold bug but my trading thoughts have kept me out of big trouble. Maybe the answer is gold could be an asset class regardless if it goes up or down. As a commodity trader if gold goes up to $2000 I would tend to believe I will be able to take pieces out of that trade and conversely if it falls to $200 I could also benefit. This is a lot different than someone who just buys and holds gold as an insurance policy against the end of the world.
