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.

Components of Successful Commodity Trading

There are no secrets. There is no magical system. Successful commodity trading boils down to three elements ( listed in importance).
1.Personal psychology
2.Money management
3. System robustness.

This probably confuses most people. Psychology is more important than the system? Yes 100%. I have heard countless times from traders if they had taken this or that trade they would have made x. Bottom line is either they did not have a plan or if they had a plan they did not follow. Following your plan has to be like religion. You must believe. You must follow every signal. Even money management and risk management is more important than the system.

I believe that trading psychology contributes about 60% to success and money management, risk management and position sizing contributes another 30%, and only 10% for system development or robustness. The reality is most traders and even professionals neglect the first two aspects and this is the reason that most traders & even professionals fail.

There is no magic. It is grind it out…stay in the game and compound your way to wealth over long periods. Trend following is not easy. It is not retirement in a box.

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