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.

Learning to Live with Draw downs in Commodity trading

Draw downs are a natural part of commodity trading & trend following. However it is much easier to say rather than when one experiences it. As I do my own trading with my colleagues, I also allocate to commodity trading advisors in order to smooth out returns & compound money. It seems even with all the years of experience I have there is some pit in the stomach when a commodity trading advisor hits a double digit draw down or even in our own trading. I console myself very quickly by knowing and have experiencing as much as the CTA or us can be down in the teens he can make that up in just one month. We do not know the future nor ever predict it. The real key of successful investing with commodity trading advisors requires this mental fortitude.

Ironically the best performer last year out of all the CTAs that I have now is doing the worst. Draw downs will occur more times than you would like but the alternative to them is the consistent returns of the likes of Bernie Madoff which end up blowing up. More so your worst Draw Down is always ahead of you…( something to look forward to)

During times of draw downs think of them as times to allocate more not sell. I try to do this personally.

Past performance is not indicative of future performance
Futures trading involves risk. People can and do lose money
