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.

Honoring your stop when commodity trading

Yesterday was a historic day in the commodity markets. I am sure that commodity trading advisors and trend followers will remember yesterday for years to come. In one word the commodity markets yesterday were BRUTAL.

No one ever(who is honest) said trading commodities or trend following is easy. Commodity trading is not buy a system or allocate to a commodity trading advisor and watch your money grow. We will always have days like yesterday. As ugly as it was if you honored stop you are fine and live another day. You got taken out of your positions(No one ever promised these positions have to work), take your small loss and lets try again to find a trend. This is what commodity trading is or at least what it should be. Follow your plan, honor your stop and do it all over again & again.

The reason that so many fail in commodity trading & trend following is that they do not honor their stop. They truly believe that silver will go to a $100 or crude will go to $200 and do not want to miss it. An astute trend follower follows their plan…exits..and if the markets turn back up & if they can put on a low risk trade they just try again. This is what successful trend followers do. Do not think however this negates the draw downs or even the duration of the draw downs.
Trend followers need to be available for trends. If you lose too much money on a trade or impair yourself mentally you will not be available when & if the markets trend.

Honor your stop, have a plan and hopefully over time you will be able to catch the next trend.

Futures trading involves risk. People can and do lose money
