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.

Commodity Trading Pep Talk

We all know what a pep talk does to a football team down in the 4th quarter of the game. It encourages them. It motivates them to win the game in the final quarter. Trading commodities and trend following is a tough game as is football. As trend followers and commodity traders there are times( actually many times) we need a little Pep talk. One of my colleagues made an acronym for pep talk ( I think my blog is my why of making my personal pep talk) which is extremely informative.

You really need to internalize it if you want to have the chance to succeed in trend following.

The acronym P.E.P. reminds us of the following:

• P: Remembering the Power of compounding is the key, and it takes TIME for compounding to work.

• E: Reasonable Expectations of what we are trying to do will give us the greatest chance of achieving our goals. Remember our plan is quite simple to understand, but putting it in place will not be easy. We need reasonable expectations to get us through the difficulties.

• P: Patience is absolutely essential, because without it, we have little chance of hanging in there when the going gets tough.

During the next draw down( which most commodity trading advisors are in now) think of the pep talk to stay in the game of commodity trading. If you can overcome the mental issues with draw downs and even worse the duration of the draw downs you stand the possibility of making trend following & commodity trading a lifetime strategy.

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